The Forest Spirit


Shishigami is the ancient spirit of the forest. During the day, Shishigami resembles a great stag with many antlers, bird-like feet, and the face of a baboon. At sunset, Shishigami becomes Daidarabocchi , a huge god in a humanoid form that appears to be made out of stars with a long pointed face and tentacle-like spikes on the back. Shishigami is protected by the Wolf Clan. As he walks, flowers bloom up at his feet though they quickly wither and die. He is capable of both giving life and taking life away.
