- Art by Enmanuel Martinez
There are many monsters on Tikor, but the Raksha are like no other beast, animal, or human found on Tikor. They sit squarely at the top of the food chain.
The Offspring of Xavian
The Raksha are a threat above anything else on Tikor. Why? For one, how they're born onto Tikor. The Withering King Xavian jumps in your brain and sweet talks to you into opening yourself into possession. Then when you accept it, he basically shoves and ancient, primordial evil of his making into your soul.
Of which said Raksha proceeds to eat you from the inside out soul wise, then hijacks your body and molds it into a shape of it's own desire. Usually as close as they can get to the form they possess in Beneath It All.
They are the ultimate monsters with speed and power beyond anything known on the planet and Enmanuel Martinez has brought one to life perfectly. There are numerous Raksha, but the one in this art piece is Obalu, an infamous name to those in Garuda.
