So I heard a story from an old Cheyenne woman once about these terrifying creatures called "teihihani." They look like children from a distance, but are very much not so. They are strong as four men (sometimes ten) and attack in mobs. Depending on who tells the story teihihani were braves who died in battle but whose bloodthirst could not be sated even with death. They gathered in groups to hunt people and eat them and would eventually have to be killed (again) or they'd just spread and spread like locusts.
