Kapre is a Philippine legendary humanoid that could be characterized as a tree demon (but with more human characteristics).
It is described as being a tall (7 to 9 ft), brown, hairy male with a beard.
Kapres are normally described as smoking a big tobacco pipe, whose strong smell would attract human attention.
Probably, the term kapre comes from the Arabic "kaffir", meaning a non-believer...
