Gaki are minor undead spirits, the spirits of wicked mortals who return to the world of the living in the form of horrible monsters as punishment for their sins. Gaki come in four dis- tinct varieties: the vampiric jiki-ketsu-gaki, the ghoulish jiki- niku-gaki, the disease-ridden shikki-gaki, and the fiery shinen- gaki. Although they differ in appearance and abilities, they are all dangerously hateful and share a monstrous appetite.
All gaki speak the languages they knew in life (at least Common). With the exception of the jiki-ketsu-gaki, however, gaki generally communicate only in grunts and moans.
For all their differences, gaki have certain qualities in common.
