Biloko (sing. Eloko) are a man-eating dwarflike race, stronger than a man, that live in jungles. They are known to use bells to enchant other humanoid races to make them cooperative in their own consumption.
Biloko are culturally primitive creatures that subsist solely on humanoid flesh. They smell like the jungle, not bothering to engage in basic hygiene practices, and lack empathy toward other humanoids. Their primary drive is to protect the game and fruits of their carefully guarded territory.
Biloko are completely bald,have a green tinge to their skin, and have a short, stout physique. They only wear grasses for clothes and the dirt on their bodies sometimes allows for grasses and other light plants to grow on their body. Their eyes are piercing and their noses bulbous, their mouths being able to unhinge wide enough to fit in an average sized human.
Biloko are generally hostile toward all humanoid races and it is rare for any other interaction with an Eloko.
Biloko are almost always evil as indiscriminate predators of humanoids. However, they may vary widely amongst the law and chaos.
Biloko live exclusively in jungle and rainforests.
Biloko practice an animistic religion revolving around an idea of dualistic hunt. Humanoids hunt the creatures of their lands and they, in turn hunt these hunters and as such they see themselves as the will of the wilds in which they live.
Biloko speak the languages of their prey so as to be able to communicate with them effectively. It is said they once spoke another language native to themselves, but it has been long forgotten.
Biloko only use personal names which are not differentiated based on gender.
