- Pronounced "WHY-rah." Waira have giant bodies with a single sharp claw on each of their forelegs. While they have been depicted in several ancient scrolls, their lower half has never been painted, and very little is known about these mysterious yokai. There are three prevailing theories about its diet: that it eats stones and dirt; that it eats small subterranean creatures; and that it eats humans. However, since we know so little of the Waira, it might very well eat anything
- Waira are able to move freely between realms the way moles so easily dig into and emerge from the ground. One might surmise that their lower halves have been so rarely seen because they remain in the Yokai Realm while the upper half surfaces to our world. It is wise to practice vigilance when the Yokai Realm is near, for Waira are said to lurk in its darkness while awaiting their next prey.
