The Kapre is from Philippine mythology. It is a big, black hairy creature who is often lying in wait for people as they walk through a path, to scare them and cast spells on them. They are said to be able to move a bed with its occupant from a house onto a tree branch. Kapres enjoy drinking, smoking, and gambling.
