Obake were men who have been vile and hateful, and somehow managed to cheat death. They began to change, their flesh attracted wasps, which burrowed into their backs and formed bulbous hives. [1]

Appearance Edit

The obake appeared as a spindly old man with ragged clothes covering a grotesque hump on his back. Always alone, he walked with a painful hunch and usually carried a cane or staff. He would often rudely demand food or money from passersby, cursing and scolding any who refused. [2]
