Half in and half out the 'Hai-Uri' is a deity of
African origin that is believed to stalk human prey. Feared by the
'Hottentots' or the 'Khoikhoi' native black Africans of Southern Africa
the Hai-Uri is said to appear in only half its form, seen as a being
with only one arm and one leg the Hai-Uri is seemingly split down the
middle, this is due to the belief that the Hai-Uri is said to be half-in
and half-out of our world, never being able to cross over fully from the
under-world from which it originates.
Thought to be extremely agile despite being only half in form the Hai-Uri
is believed to be a predator of men, the Hai-Uri is also believed to be
gifted with a form of partial invisibility that enables it to sneak up
upon its prey. Victims of the Hai-Uri upon capture are then said
to be dragged back by this terrible creature into the underworld lair
from which it came.
