Resembling a human female with brown or dark blue skin and long, glossy hair, Ciguapa are a semi-aquatic and female-only species. Their knees bend backwards, and their feet resemble curved hands. Like so:
The Ciguapa are a typical example of the Stolen – folks whose magic is being taken by the Throne or the Scepter. The Ciguapa have entered into a contract with the People of the Darkness to negate this, which involves servitude for some years, but is considered well worth it because the interference from the Darkness allows them to keep their magic instead of it being hijacked by the Throne.
The Darkness like to use them as servants for their intelligence, skills, and beauty, so it works out – to some extent – for everybody.
