Bestiary EntryEdit

Kanji6

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.

EtymologyEdit

Jogenmushi

Basic illustration of a tsunemotomushi.

Tsunemotomushi derives from a mythical insect in Japanese folklore.

A rogue samurai who led a gang of thugs, murderers and rapists terrorised a small town, but was eventually caught and hanged for his crimes.

His remains were buried at the base of a tree. Every year after his death, from insects would emerge from the tree, all with his face, and they would bring misery and bad luck to those who saw them.
