This is where you describe your character... Dante is the protagonist in my Science Fiction epic, INSKY SOLEIL. He has the gift of bilocation and lives two lives at the same time - one in the present and one in 2113. He is fearless, determined, violent, emotionally detached, intelligent and cunning. He has only one weakness...
A Phooka is a very dangerous and often violent shapeshifting trickster from Celtic myth, known for their ability to change into great fearsome black animals so that they can scare humans. Some Phookas take a liking to humans and just play harmless pranks (like Harvey the rabbit of Jimmy Stewart movie fame) other Phookas are blood-thirsty vampire-like creatures which lure humans to their doom.
"Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" creatures. I really wanted to like this movie... until they screwed it up by showing the creatures. When they were speedy little blurs, or better yet, out of sight entirely, they were scary. When you could see them, they looked like rabid capuchin monkeys with the mange. Not scary.
