Rakshasas are demonic shapeshifters in the world of TDDC. In their true form, they are tiger-headed beings with wrists that can rotate 360°, but most Rakshasas will never show this form. These deceitful Rakshasas are known as Shugo, and each individual member is known as a Daimyo.
However, all of the Rakshasas the party has encountered thus far are part of a smaller organisation, known as the Rahjs. They prefer not to change form and stick always to the letter of their agreements, and often also to the spirit.
