Sisimites for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

According to the legend, sisimite is a horrible monster that is described as a Sasquatch or Yeti lookalike.

Sisimites are large, apelike creatures with long hair and strong arms. They live deep within the forests of the northernmost parts of the Amassona and in the foothills of the Antisuya. Rumor has it that sisimites only leave their forests and caves to search for humanoid women to kidnap.

Despite its primitive appearance, sisimites actually possess a cruel intelligence and limited psychic ability. They utilize a maddening gaze that stuns its victims, leaving it open for the sisimite to kidnap… or crush.
