Ahuizotl the Aztec swamp monster
From wiki "...very like the teui, the small teui dog; small and smooth, shiny. It has small, pointed ears, just like a small dog. It is black, like rubber; smooth, slippery, very smooth, longtailed. And its tail is provided with a hand at the end; just like a human hand is the point of its tail. And its hands are like a raccoon's hands or like a monkey's hands. It lives, it is a dweller in watery caverns, in watery depths. And if anyone arrives there at its entrance, or there in the water where it is, it then grabs him there. It is said that it sinks him, it plunges him into the water; it carries him to its home, it introduces him to the depths; so its tail goes holding him, so it goes seizing him ... [When the body is retrieved] the one it has drowned no longer has his eyes, his teeth, and his nails; it has taken them all from him. But his body is completely unblemished, his skin uninjured. Only his body comes out all slippery-wet; as if one had pounded it with a stone; as if it had inflicted small bruises ..."

age unknown

green teeth,androgynous body type,small,lean

gills, extra arms,multi nipples,dreadlocks,piercings

the pattern doesn't have to be spot on so don't kill yourself

ahui can't talk,and can only make a crying noise like a baby
all three sets of eyes can move independently of each other, the top two sets aren't always used, and look like green spots when the eyelids are closed

the green teeth are homage to jenny green teeth,an Irish river monster who drown her victims and ate them

the tail makes up about a third of his body weight and can support him, it is also strong enough to pin down things larger than him,he is a lot strong than he looks
the tongue can stretch out to two feet in length and is prehensile,the tip of the tongue has a set of serrated teeth that grow out of it in the same manner as an octopus's beak. these are used for extracting eyes, His favorite food
the tail,feet and hands are all symmetrical, with three fingers and a thumb on either side

animalistic behavior,take what he wants,usually food though
