In Ancient Japan, The Onibi were said to be the Spirits of dead Humans and Animals, which could not (for many reasons), ''pass over'' or likewise ''go on'' to their Afterlife. Confused, The Onibi are somewhat malevolent, being slightly tolerant of living Humans. They are portrayed as glowing Balls of Fires (sometime pillars of flame), and prefer mountains to reside. Preternatural Flame, The Onibi can only appear during The Rain (without a hint of being drenched or put out as a result). They are often used in Literature as a cautionary tale.
