Bakemono are believed to have been the first spawn of the formorians from where goblins, orcs, hobgoblins, bugbears, ogres, trolls and various formorian humanoids come from. They are also known as boggarts, boggins, and slaugh.
Bakemono are mostly like simple brutish beasts that can climb trees as if goblins bred with apes and they spawned this strange race of barbaric bestial goblinoids. Bakemono wander around the deepest reaches of the wilderness and can even be found within the Feywild. They are but savage beasts generally tamed and used like hunting hounds and guard beasts among goblinoids and orcs. Bakemono though heavily muscled and apelike in appearance can come in a variety of colors, classically green and they can grow large manes, sometimes bright blue or orange in appearance. Bakemono have also been seen in mundane colors like black, bronze, gray, and so forth. Bakemono are omnivores and they even eat their own dead so they are cannibals as well. They basically eat anything, even offal, organs, long rotting corpses, and so forth.
If a bakemono learns to speak it only speaks with one-word grunts and can only understand simple commands.
