"In a certain Rakkhari forest, there exists a very strange thing indeed - an eerie creature that visits lonesome travellers. Though no one has ever been attacked - or lived to tell about it - everyone who has come across it witnesses about a terrifying, eerie presence. Once so strong they could not help but flee. Some have tried to hunt it down, but it seems like the strange creature only shows itself to those it chooses. Exactly where it came from and what it is doing in that forest is anyone's guess.
One particular individual I spoke to, an older gentleman with a burst of white hair and a scheming glint in his eye, ensured me that the creature didn't inhabit that forest by random chance, however. With a mischievous smile he told me how he had himself entered those woods, feeling that same terror as many others. But with gritted teeth, he had treaded onwards, until the creature itself revealed itself. Then, he leaned forward, making sure only I could hear him, and told me that the creature is not the only thing hiding in that glade.
When I asked him what he meant, he simply gave me a wink, and chuckled that some things are better left alone. Then, he pured me some more tea, and kept the rest to himself."
