The lobisomem is a creature in the mythology of South America. In Brazil, it is thought to be a werewolf who mainly attacks women. In humanoid form, it is a little over two feet in height and resembles a furry monkey with a bald head. It is said to have an evil face and large, full feet similar to plush slippers to give it a stealthy advantage.
