Region of origin: Alaska, United States

A species of hominid from the folklore of the Yup’ik tribes of southwestern Alaska. Descriptions from sightings mention exceptionally long arms, glowing eyes and making a mournful call comparable to that of a loon. The urayuli are considered to be peaceful, but old stories warn children not too wander alone in the woods where the creatures live or they’ll turn into one themselves.
