RAVEN WOLFFIRE - TENGU
Raven Wolffire chose Tengu.
Tengu are a class of supernatural creatures found in Japanese folklore. They are traditionally depicted with both human and avian characteristics. The earliest tengu were pictured with beaks, but this feature has often been humanized as an unnaturally long nose. Buddhism long held that the tengu were disruptive demons and harbingers of war. Their image gradually softened, however, into one of protective, if still dangerous, spirits of the mountains and forests. Tengu are associated with the ascetic practice known as Shugendo, and they are usually depicted in the distinctive garb of its followers, the yamabushi. This Tengu is wielding the Shakujo, a distinct staff used by Buddhist monks, and holding a magical hauchiwa, fans made of feathers.
