EtymologyEdit

SekienWaira

A Waira, hiding behind trees.

The Waira is unusual in that it appears to have no specific history of folklore, appearing only in several collections of illustrated monster guides by 18th century Japanese artists.

The association with being a mountain spirit, appears to have been invented by later story writers. As does being a guardian of shrines.

It is believed to derive from the word "kowai" ("わい", "fear", "horror"), possibly linking it with the Otoroshi, another creature who shares a similar naming orign.
