The Ugallu are the nightmares of exposure. They’re the primal terror of being caught without your defenses, without the comforts of tools or shelter to keep you safe.
SWOOPING DOWN FROM THE SKIES
The Ugallu are snatchers, they come down and take away what is dear. Life, food, resources. They’re a reminder that nothing is truly ever safe from a superior predator, and only constant vigilance will give you a fighting chance.
Ugallu lairs strip a victim of their capaibilities, leaving them helpless and exposed and vulnerable. There is no shelter from the Ugallu.
An Ugallu can uncover the hidden with a glance. Nothing can escape their sight, and when other creatures attempt their own powers to stymie the Ugallu, then they enter a clash of wills.
The Ugallu are interesting to me because they have a stronger sense of what they do with themselves than say, the Namtaru. In some ways, I like the Ugallu as a reminder of what a person truly needs. When stripped of their luxuries, a person learns to appreciate what is truly important… even if it is only for the last few moments of their lives.
