Qori Ismaris also know as the Werehyena Witch; is distantly related to the Ghul and the Umma Ghoula of the great deserts of the North. This powerful shapeshifter is known to haunt the Savannah and arid highlands but they have been spotted in the rain forests as well. It is said that they will take up residence near villages as handsome blacksmiths and lovely healers and slowly manipulate the village into trusting them... eventually young children and maidens will disappear and only their eaten remains will be found deep in the wilderness. After they have manipulated their prey for a time they will strike and devour them in their true form. Others are known to live in the deep wilderness, corrupting Hyenas by feeding them their blood and turning them into into manlike Bouda (Werehyenas) or even the lower Jibi (Gnolls) who can wield crude weapons. These savage cannibal packs quickly descend on desert caravans, villages and sometimes fortified bazaars at several Oasis to devour the inhabitants and loot their arms and armor. The men who eventually become these beasts are corrupted by a powerful dark god like Papa Legba, Maahnes, Bhaal, Nurghal or Sukteth, they are cursed with a powerful hunger that almost never ceases unless they feast on the flesh of the innocent. They are also cursed with a fierce jealously of all those who find true love and of the innocent and beautiful.
