ALC50: The Curious Folk

Location: Remote wooded areas in North America and Northern Europe.

Status: Inactive (Extinct).

Description and Behavior: The Curious Folk were an anomalous species resembling small, furry humanoids usually draped in a bedsheet with eyeholes. They were described as having dark purple eyes with horizontal rectangular pupils. The typical height of these entities was about three and a half feet (1.1 meters). Underneath the bedsheet, their fur was a bluish black color, and their ears were droopy and rabbit-like.

As obligate carnivores, the Curious Folk were known to wander forests in search of small animals to eat with their mouths filled with small sharp teeth. Towards larger animals and humans, they seemed to exhibit no predatory behavior. Instead the Curious Folk would seek to inspect anything they were not familiar with. This often manifested as them sneaking into isolated cabins and handling the various appliances present. Unfortunately, this often led to the entities being killed or captured by the inhabitants.

As of now, it seems that this anomalous species is extinct due to their own curiosity leading them to danger. Over the years many Curious Folk were sold on the black-market as pets or exotic meats further reducing their numbers in the wild. This is unfortunate as the species, while unwittingly mischievous, was supposedly capable of a minor anomalous healing ability when befriended in its natural setting.

Recommended Actions: If our reports of this species’ extinction prove inaccurate and you encounter one in the wild, know that is completely safe. There have never been any known incidents of these entities injuring a human even in retaliation. As such, feel free to treat it as any small woodland animal. Please report any sightings to PRAE so that we may follow up and study them. If one of these entities is encountered in captivity, please report it to us and the relevant authorities. If possible and safe to do so, attempt to free the entity as they are rumored to develop severe health problems from captivity.
