Variations: Kukuthi, Lugat
This is the second stage of the Lugat. The transformation can take as short as 30 days or as long as 40 years but 40 days is the most frequently cited amount. Once it reaches this stage it can pass for a human being.
Kukudhi have a wanderlust mentality and as a result will tend to pass themselves off as a merchant. When it feeds it takes a very small amount of blood to sustain itself leaving the victim alive.
Wolves are the only thing that can harm and destroy a Kukudhi.
GURPS Blood Types gives "Kukuthi (Albania)" but no other information.
