Bestiary Entry Edit

Garan energized with the power of a fifth-level Hotoke. Despite being half-transparent, he is easy recognizable by his characteristically creepy voice.


Hotoke is a word related to Buddism and has many serveral meanings but most are related to Buddism. They usually mean they have been enlighten or performing a buddist memorial service. But there is another meaning to this word which simply means a dead person; his or her soul, which could possibly be why those choose this name since Garan has past on.
