Pilous are creatures that live in attics. You can always hear them marching but they are never visible. They live at the very tip of France, usually around Brittany. They love making fun by making noise. In Brittany, they hold mallets which they use to hit the walls of abandoned houses.
Pilous are described as big dormice. They also hold a mallet.
Most sightings of Pilous are made in the countryside. Once, a farmer went into a barn to get hay. Once he was inside, he heard marching all around him. He then yelled for his uncle to get rid of the noise. His uncle then came and asked the Pilous to stop making a commotion. The Pilous stopped, and once the uncle left, they began marching ever louder then before.
