In the Philippine Mythology, The Kibaan are fair-skinned, their mouths gleam with gold teeth, heels point forward and toes behind. They have long hair that reaches their feet, but are only as big as a two-year old child. They can be found in the Bangar tree, in bushes and small trees frequented by “alitaptap” or fireflies at night. By its frustration, it is kept in a mortal’s yard. It keeps the ground under its tree home well swept. It has a kitchen where a spicy odor emanates from after sunset. It sings in small groups on vines in groves while strumming tiny guitars. The Kibaan steal yam from fire, but is fooled by stones roasted in place of the tubers .It gives mortal friends a magic pot, purse, hat, net chain, goat, whip and/or drum. These are similar to those made by the Pallocs. Example, Magic Pot never empties of food.
A Kibaan stands more than 3 feet tall and weighs about 50 pounds.
