The Yara-Ma-Yha-Who is a creature with origins in Australian mythology, legend and folklore.



The Yara-Ma-Yha-Who is a short, stumpy humanoid, with red skin, a disproportionately large head, and suckers on the ends of its fingers.




The Yara-ma-yha-who is said to live in fig trees. Instead of hunting for food, it is described as waiting for an unsuspecting traveller to rest under the tree. The creature then drops down and uses its suckers to drain the victim's blood. After that it consumes the person, drinks some water, and then takes a nap. When the Yara-ma-yha-who awakens, it regurgitates the victim, leaving it shorter than before. The victim's skin also has a reddish tint to it that it didn't have before. It repeats this process several times. At length, the victim is transformed into a Yara-ma-yha-who itself.
