Davalpa

The Davalpa (originally referred to as Himantopus in Greek sources) are strange men with legs that are actully straps of rope. They live on uncharted islands in the Indian Ocean and they wait for passing people to give them a ride. Once you agree to help carry them, they use their legs to catch you. They use you as a slave and force you to carry them wherever they wish.  

Appearance[]

Davalpas look like old men with three metre long rope legs. They also have a tail to whip their slaves. 

Sightings[]

In Sinbad the Sailor, Sinbad was captured by a Davalpa named the Old Man of the Sea, and was forced to do work for him. But Sinbad got the Davalpa drunk which led to Sinbad using a rock to smash the Davalpas' head.  

Another sailor tells of a strange man that wrapped himself around his neck. He managed to get away by getting him drunk.
