Imboakely, “Little Bull” in Malagasy, has the ability to see and hear both nature spirits and ghosts, and can even talk to them in limited situations. His specialty is to seek angry spirits/ghosts, find out what disturbs them, and give instructions to the living locals on how to solve the issue. He can perform exorcisms to get rid of really persistent troublemakers if needed, but those are tricky and really disagreeable for everyone involved.

He’s got a complicated friend/lover relationship with Ikelitsaravintana.

His outfit is based on early-19th century Merina garb. The walking stick is based on the Mahafaly people’s aloalo funeral decorations.
