The power to use the abilities of a boobrie. Variation of Mythical Bestiary.

Also Called

  • Boobrie Mimicry


User with this ability either is or can transform into an boobrie, a mythological shapeshifting entity inhabiting the lochs of the west coast of Scotland that commonly the appearance of a gigantic water bird resembling a cormorant or great northern loon "larger than seventeen of the biggest eagles put together" that bellows noisily with displeasure, sounding more like a bull than a bird.

It can also materialize as a water bull, water horse or infrequently as a large insect that sucks on the blood of horses, described as a "big stripped brown gobhlachan or ear-wig" with "lots of tentacles or feelers".

The boobrie is a generally malevolent entity that commonly preys on animals being transported on ships, preferably calves, but will also eat lambs and sheep, carrying its prey away to the deepest water before consuming it. It is also extremely fond of otters, which it consumes in large quantities.

Although sea lochs are the boobries' natural home they will shelter on land in overgrown heather.
