Bestiary EntryEdit

Kanji8

Rough Translation:
A devil with the body of parasite that rides in the brains of cattle. Because it defiles sacred cows, it was driven from India by Hindu mystics. The cattle are manipulated by its cranial nerves, so the parasite always pushes its host's body to the very limit.

EtymologyEdit

Rakshasa

Statue of a Rakshasa

A Rasetsu is one of many alternative names for the Rakshasa, a race of hideous giant cannibal beasts, originating from Hindu mythology, but later incorporated into Buddism, and many other South-East Asian regional myths and religions.

Fearsome and monsterous, they were often depicted as giants, with protruding tusk-like fangs, wild staring eyes, and razor-sharp fingernails.

They fed on the flesh and blood of humans, being able to drink it from their palms. They were said to have numerous magical powers, among them the power of flight, illusion, and the ability to shapeshift.
