Fiura lives on Chiloé Island. She is a very ugly woman, who is said to be the wife of Trauco.
She is a forest creature just like her husband. And also, like him, a sexual predator.
She assaults men after "taking their breath" (an enchantment she performs to seduce them), to do so she gets close to them and breathes on them, absorbing their breath to take control of her victims.
She has dirty long hair and dresses in a gray gown.
She is the daughter of "Condená", another mythical being, and she takes after her because Condená, which means "the condemned one", is also an ugly old hag. Depraved and lascivous, she too, like her daughter, sexually attacks lonely men.
Chilean folklorist Vicuña Cifuentes compiled a slightly different version in which Trauco (the male) is also known as Fiura, and his wife is known not as Fiura but as Trauca (where, in Spanish, the final "a" indicates femenine gender).
She is also known as Huella and adds "Vir qui thraucam somniat cum viro coibit" hinting at her perverse nature.
