Tagabantay are creatures native to Pachiomadio who are preseumed to be part of the Nonman legacy. The beasts are shaped like massive, exaggerated gorillas, with arms as thick as trees that terminate in clawed, prehensile hands. They are hairless, with gray skin, and have a face that resembles some prehistoric insect, complete with six eyes that glow yellow in the dark.
The Tagabantay are absolutely destructive to any person that enters their territory, killing him or her with an unnatural ferocity. They seem to know when life within their territory is threatened, such as when trees are being cut down or if native creatures are being hunted by people from outside the land, and will pursue whoever trespassed so. Some Littlefolk find themselves under the protection of a Tagabantay, and will give homages and prayers to the creature.
