Tokoloshe are a type of demonic familiar from African folklore, believed to be created by evil magicians to act on their behalf.

A Tokoloshe is an artificial demon created by evil South African shamans and become vicious enforcers of their masters as well as free-roaming menaces capable of taking many different forms or becoming invisible via drinking water. They can range from simply scaring children into good behavior to outright murderous rapists and man-eaters. Once a Tokoloshe is unleashed, it is often believed only the powers of a witch-doctor is capable of truly banishing it.
