Papinijuwaris can sense and feed off the life force of those infected by disease, and seek to spread pestilence. They are capable of taking the form of a shooting star to race across the skies and invisibly stalk through settlements at night, hastening the progression of diseases.
Papinijuwaris are hated by their cloud giant cousins, even the evil ones, as their hunting practices offend the so-called refined giants' sensibilities. In some humanoid cultures, the sight of a shooting star heralds the arrival of a papinijuwari.
