Invunche by Genzoman.

In the Chilote folklore and Chilote legends of the Chiloé Island in southern Chile, the Imbunche is a vampirish creature that guards the entrance to a warlock's cave.The invunche is a deformed human with its head twisted backwards, along with having twisted arms, fingers, nose, mouth and ears. The creature walks on one foot or on three feet (actually one leg and two hands) because one of its legs is attached to the back of its neck. The invunche can't talk, and communicates only by guttural, rough and unpleasant sounds.


According to legend, the Imbunche was a little one kidnapped by, or sold by his parents to a Brujo Chilote (a type of sorcerer or warlock of Chiloé).

The Brujo chilote hideously transformed the child into a deformed hairy monster, applying a magic solution over the boy's back to cause thick hairs and, finally turning his tongue to snake-like one.

Besides guarding the entrance to the warlock's cave, the invunche is used by warlocks as an instrument for revenge or curses. And, because it has acquired magical knowledge over its lifetime spent guarding the cave, even if the invunche is not initiated on wizardry, it sometimes acts as the warlock's advisor.
The invunche leaves the cave only in certain circumstances, such as when the warlock's cave is destroyed or discovered and the warlock moves to another cave, or when the warlocks have need of him, and they carry the invunche while he's thrashing and yelling, scaring the townspeople and announcing misfortune to come. The invunche also comes out when the warlocks take it to the Warlock's Council.

When he goes in search of food it is on three feet, getting along in leaps and letting out blood-curdling yells scaring anyone who hears them.

If anyone sees him they are frozen to the spot forever.The only beings who can look at him without risk are witches.As tough as this abomination may be, it is possible to eradicate the Imbunche.

Because it was once human, the monster is still vulnerable to man-made weapons like cold steel and firearms. However, there is another difficult task to face beforehand: one must kill the Trelquehuecuve, the water beast that serves the Imbunche.

As this creature is said to be large in size and vicious towards humans, slaying the monster will not be an easy task.
