APPEARANCE: Umakan is an infectious parasite with the appearance of a splendid, fast horse. Its head, neck, and back are deep red. It’s tail, belly, and legs are white. It acts up in bright sunlight, or the light from a large fire.
INTERACTIONS: Umakan victims suffer from a weak heart and fainting spells. Upon waking up, they seem perfectly fine with no other problems.
