El Caleuche is a big ghost boat that navigates the seven seas and often appears in the Chiloé chanels. El Caleche navegates over and down the sea surface, but never down the sun light.
El Caleuche is in the habit appear at calm night through the fog, and looks like a big candlemaker with beautiful lights over its cover. Music, voices and laughs are listen from the Caleuche's cover, like a big and funny party.
El Caleuche appears and disappears so quicky through the fog, that it doesn't leave any vestige of its presence.
If someone tries to persecute it, El Caleuche becomes tranformed in a slippery seal or a tree trunk that floats over the waters or lays over the sand of some beach.
The Caleuche's crew is composed by two kind of sailors : witches whom came in to the ship, over the back of the Caballo Marino, and the dead shipwrecked persons, whom were carried to the ship by La Pincoya. When this last people come on to the Caleuche's surface, they return to the life, but a new life full of eternal happiness.
The resurected people belong to the other life, but they obtain from their bosses license to visit their families once a year. In this way they can give consolation and economic help to their families.
El Caleuche obeys the Millalobo commands, and have for mission to travel the seven seas, watching the state of seas and their inhabitants, and punishing the people whom attempt against sea and its creatures. While El Caleuche travels the seas, helps other ships with troubles, to find sure ports, or moving them at incredible speeds.
