A Spanish word for a race of evil creatures from Chile. The name translates as ‘Captive’ or ‘Recluse’. These beings were once children who abducted in the region of Chiloe.

They eventually transformed into hairy grey cannibals served by the Chivato and Invunche. Sometimes they became the Chivato and Invunche. These creatures were supposedly used for satanic rituals.
