Etymology Edit

Gakiimage

A typical Gaki

The Gaki (餓鬼) is the Japanese translation of "Preta" (Sanskrit,"प्रेत") a malevolent spirit of the dead, that suffers from an eternal thirst and hunger as punishment for transgressions in their previous lives.

They are often depicted as severely emaciated, but with distended, bloated bellies, and tiny mouths.

A common myth across Asia, depending on the local myths, they can eat either only food that has been blessed, or "unclean" substances (faeces, vomit, corpses, etc), though it can never quench their thirst, or assuage their hunger.
