Powers and Abilities
Corpse Possession: Onmoraki can possess the dead bodies of humans, using them as his own body.
Onmoraki are bird-demons with black feathers that are created from the spirits of freshly-dead corpses. They are great at mimicry, perfectly able to replicate voices. They appear near temples, particularly in the presence of neglectful priests, sneaking up on those who are sleeping and surprise them, scolding them with their own voices. They vanish after the priests wake up in terror. Legends of the Onmoraki originate from China.
Mizuki's illustration of Onmoraki is more faithful to the original depiction and was later used for the design of Gokurakuchō.
