#atozchallenge – Q is for Qiqirin, prowling the North

 

He prowls the North, spreading madness.

The Qiqirin spirit hardly seems worthy of attention at first. Skittish and seemingly foolish, this mostly bald dog spirit seems harmless enough. With only its mouth, tail, ears and feet covered in hair, it may seem just a harmless oddity – another prowler in the frosty backwoods of the North. People who come to near one, however, suffer violent seizures, and can even die simply from proximity to its spiritual power. The beast may be skittish and quick to run away, but it takes its toll on anyone it encounters.
