Here’s a cool little guy.

According to a few definitions I found, Menehuna are Polynesian jungle faeries that have dwarf proportions. They, like Leprechauns, possess treasure, which they guard with their lives. They usually live near waterfalls, and if they meet a gentle wanderer who is lost in the jungle, they will usually point the way out themselves or send signs to the lost traveler to lead him out. Sometimes they will invite the traveler to a cool clearing and feed him goodies before sending him on his way. The best thing about a finding a menahuna is if you capture him, he gives you a wish.

I will probably fix him up some more.
