Ancient Durkean; a supernatural beast, specifically a demon feared almost universally by the Durkeans. Cultural anthropologists investigating the role of the Higgagee in the durkean creation mythology claim that it was first seen by the First Chief, Dyodom, in the Elsa wilderness, specifically in the region referred to as having some connection with a california based tribe of Winnebago.
The Durkean creation story also tells of the Higgagee's ability to manifest itself into a corporeal form that is inpentirably black, and seems as if it were a "hole in reality" to quote Doctor Earl Wynn.
The Higgagee was seen by Dyodom, in the Elsa Wilderness.
Ancient Durkean; the miptrine is a triangular nipple ring worn by people of great power within separate clans or bands. It is seen as a sign of divinity, and for someone who does not deserve to wear it, doing so would be considered taboo.
