Bestiary EntryEdit


Rough Translation:
A spirit of maggots that welled up from the corpse of a villain called "Tsunemoto" who was executed four hundred years ago. In the blink of an eye, where Tsunemoto felt was he was undeservedly buried, at the foot of a tree, his corpse was suddenly replaced by several hundred writhing maggots, who swarmed over his place of execution.


It derives from a mythical insect in Japanese folklore, that was the remains of a samurai who led a gand of thugs and murderers, and was buried at the base of a tree. Every year from the tree would emerge insects with his face, and they would bring misery and bad luck to those who saw them.
