The power to use the abilities of Curupira. Variation of Mythic Physiology.


User with this ability either is or can transform into Curupira (Tupi kuru'pir, "covered in blisters"), a mythological creature of Brazilian folklore, appearing as a man or a dwarf with bright red/orange hair, but its feet are turned backwards. They prey on poachers and hunters that take more than they need of the forest, and also attacks people who hunt animals that were taking care of their offspring.

Curupira lives in the forests of Brazil and uses its backward feet to create footprints that lead to its starting point, thus making hunters and travelers confused. They can create illusions and produce a sound that's like a high pitched whistle in order to scare and drive its victim to madness.
