A vile witch who disguises itself as a helpless woman along the river banks asking any male passerby to help hold her baby. If they accepted to help and take what was not a baby but just a dirty old cloth, she immediately shapeshifted in a monstrous serpentine snake standing up over 15 feet tall.
In ancient Japan during the reign of the 12th century many unholy entities roamed the lands in search of their next victims. These supernatural creatures were spawn from the depths of the underworld and summoned by demons themselves as servants to the dark world.
Be careful along the riverbanks and be mindful of who you talk to.
And if you're fortunate enough to hold a token... Hold it tight.Beware of the Nure-Onna.
