Nittaewo

This small humanoid is covered in reddish fur and holds its long arms above its head. It screeches at you, bearing oversized talons.

Taken from Creature Codex

The nittaewo are dwarfish creatures that combine features of man and apes, particularly gibbons. Although many of these ape-men, such as yeti and sasquatch, are peaceable and retiring, nittaewo are violent carnivores with a taste for intelligent, terrified meat. They are highly sociable creatures in their own way, living in large colonies led by the strongest and most cunning of their ilk. These elite nittaewo are usually clerics, commanding respect through their mastery of sinister magic and worshiping evil gods or demon lords.

Nittaewo have little material culture to speak of—they have mastered fire, which they use to light caves, cook meat and commit arson attacks. They do not use weapons, preferring their disproportionately huge talons, but covet armor and seek it out through raiding when possible. Their tribes live in scattered shelters made in trees, cliffs and caves. They will, however, steal the dwellings of other peoples if possible. Nittaewo attacks are typically conducted in numbers—gangs of nittaewo will first stalk prey silently, and then descend as a shrieking horde.

A nittaewo stands about three feet tall, with arms nearly that long, and weighs about 100 pounds. Male and female nittaewo do not differ dramatically in appearance, like their gibbon forbears.
