A yara-ma-yha-who is an intelligent humanoid creature that lives in Mectrixctic. They stand about 2-4 feet talland resemble a small reptilian humanoid with a large head, mouth, eyes without pupils, and tentacles instead of arms. They use their tentacles to latch onto a human and drink their blood. They are greatly feared because of their appearance and behaviour, although there are less casualties from them than of Yowies.
Yara-ma-yha-whos evolved with humans. They prefer to be seperated from them, although they interact sometimes. It should be noted that yara-ma-yha-whos need to interact with humans to reproduce. Yara-ma-yha-whos procreat in an odd way. They are unable to do it with each others, and require a human host. A yara-ma-yha-who would find a human, and latch its tentacles on it. The sucktion cups have blood drinking properties, and the creature uses them. This blood is neccesary for procreation. Then the yara-ma-yha-who would swallow the human whole and regergitate it. The human would be consious after that and the yara-ma-yha-who would chase it if it ran. Yara-ma-yha-whos have stubby legs and can easily be outrun, but if a human fails to do so, it will continue to drink blood and swallow the human and vomit it up again. After every swallow after the first one, the human would become shorter, redder, and eventually become a new yara-me-yha-who. They are then taken to the yara-me-yha-who tribe and are sent to adapt the customs.
