This blue-skinned humanoid creature has a yawning, fanged mouth, and long clawed fingers. Its flesh bears gruesome scars and gaping wounds revealing swollen purple flesh within.

Spirits of greed, avarice, and gluttony, jikki nikki-gaki retain their basically humanoid form but their flesh is rotten and repulsive, pallid and flaking. Some are bloated and corpulent as a mark of their eternal gluttony, while others are emaciated as through forever starving with a hunger that cannot be satisfied.

A jikki-nikki-gaki is an ambusher. Although not very intelligent, it uses cunning to set up advantageous situations.

When encountered in groups, jikki-nikki-gaki surround their enemies, using pack tactics.
