Gagiid is a wild, otherworldly creature who has been transformed through a traumatic maritime experience. Some believe that he can be found lurking on the forest edge and near streams, collecting the souls of the drowned and trying to persuade unwitting humans to eat his ghostly food, causing them to become otherworldly like him. However, it is not all doom and gloom – as with any transformation, it is possible for Gagiid to be tamed and re-enter the human world again.
