Kathoga or Kothoga or Kothaga is a type of mutant worshipped by a tribe in South America, in the 1995 book and 1997 film The Relic.

OverviewEdit

In South America, there is a unique fungus that, when ingested, causes creatures to mutate due to an excess of hormones found in the fungus. These hormones are from a variety of creatures, and cause infected organisms to display traits not normally associated with their species. When ingested by a human, they become the Kathoga, a monstrous forest spirit in tribal myths. It is an extremely violent creature that must rip out and eat the hypothalamus' of other humans; if it cannot find the hormones contained in the fungus or in the hypothalamus, it will die. The creature displays the traits of reptiles, mammals, and insects, and is very fast and strong. The only known specimen was later killed in an explosion.
