Belu are usually man-eating humanoid beings capable of shapeshifting.
There are two main sub-species:
Pan-kike Belu, literally "flower biters". Belu with straight fangs that eat humans. Generally malevolent.
Panswé Belu, literally "flower danglers". Belu with curved or hooked fangs that eat flowers and fruits. Generally benevolent.
