Bestiary EntryEdit

Kanji12

Rough Translation:
The soul of a footman that was killed in battle, and took on the appearance of a carrion fly.
Calling, "Itsumade...", it will attempt to curse you to a similar likeness; Stopping this will require some skill.
If you are looking at its hideous face, it will haunt you til your dying day.

EtymologyEdit

Itsumadewoodcut

Woodcut of the creature that would later be called, "Itsumade"

The Itsumade is a minor mythological creature featured in Japanese folklore, appearing at times of great plagues, flying overhead.

It was described as a flaming bird-like creature, with a bent-beaked human face, snake-like body, and razor-sharp talons.

The creature itself had no name, but was named after its cry, as it circled overhead; "Itsumade", meaning "How much longer [until you are dead]?"

It was said to feed on the bodies of fallen soldiers, the souls of which it could transform into other Itsumade. It is also said to be born from a soul of a person who starved to death. .
