A Burmese Legend, The ''Thaye'' are ''Physical Spirits'' of Persons condemned to wander the Earth, due to their poor behavior when alive. To make sure they are known for their misdeeds, The Thaye ''return'' with grossly misshapen ears and often tall and overly thin bodies. They are also often portrayed in Burmese Art as being extremely horrible to look upon. The Thaye are seen as bringers of disease to a Village. Often Shaman make magical circle around a Victim Household, chanting and invoking a myriad of protection prayers to drive off The Thaye. Thaye's can be driven off, but not killed.
