A phouka is a shape-shifting creature that resides in forests all over Levenia, much like fairies. They are known to be helpful as well as mischievous. Very often they take on the shape of a horse, but they can also take on the shape of birds, dogs, rabbits, and cats. Their humanoid form often includes animal ears and a tail. Sometimes, they love to take humans on a wild ride through the forest in their horse form in the middle of the night, dropping them off in the morning exhausted. Phoukas have been known to he hired as spies, hunters, forest navigators, and bounty hunters, but also known to destroy someone’s crops and livestock if rubbed the wrong way.
