The Tokoloshe is a mythical, magical little man in African culture, much like a leprechaun. Except it only holds evil in its power, and no good. And it holds this black and dark magic at its utter and total command. Its charms are of the supernatural kind, it serves darkness, and only has your downfall as its priority. It brings bad luck; not good luck. It creeps into your room while you are asleep, much like the bogey man, and infiltrates your dreams and subconscious with most dark and evil intent. It lures your soul to the other side from which it shall never return. Indeed; you may die before you awake. You can put your bed on stilts as some folks do. You may paint the red paint of sacred protection at your doorstep. You may say your magic charms. Yet, nothing can save you from that evil and eternally dark intent, which is the unholy little man called; the Tokoloshe. The light is extinguished at nightfall as darkness falls, and so hope flies with the setting sun. Lock your doors, and huddle the children to sleep, for the darkness is on the prowl tonight. Beware the Tokoloshe!
