R Is For: Rakshasa


Name: Rakshasa

Origin: India (Hinduism / Buddhism)

Type: Demon/ Evil Spirit


Rakshasa are usually shown as ugly and violent, and are also rather large creatures (roughly the size of a hill). They have twin vampire-esque fangs and venomous nails. Rakshasa tend to act rather barbarically, usually devouring all they can get a hold of be it animal or human flesh. The creatures also have the ability to fly and change their shape and size when they please. Over all Rakshasa are a more demonic version of a vampire, meant purely to torment human beings.
