The achaclia are spirits of the Amoya people in Bolivia. Like dwarves, they live in underground warrens, carved out of the living rock, deep under mountains.

They appear when humans see them, disguised as aged men, near the ends of their lives, and walking with aids. Yet, they control great power.

It is unclear whether the power is individual, or emanates from their underground labyrinth complexes. They possess the power to alter the weather; flinging rain, hail or frost down upon the surface of the world nearby, at will.
