Lorelei Girouard

Genus: Girouard

Species: Lorelei​


Although often found in an office environment, the Lorelei is most likely to show her true nature around a campfire in a wilderness setting. Habits of the Lorelei include playing ukulele and displaying sloth like behaviour with friends and relations. You can spot this species wherever Uke Fests are found.
