In Japanese Mythos and Legend, ''Yurei'' were (are) non-specific Ghosts or Spirits which exists only to harm The Living. They are possibly the most feared of all Japanese ''Yokai''. These Sprirt come from a wide variety of situations which caused their often untimely demise. But of all, suicide seems to be the most common link in the ''creation'' of a Yurei. As such, Yurei try to drive their victims mad and commit the act. They can be ''comely'' in appearance or quite frightening. ''Yurei'' are often portrayed in Japanese Art as feminine, dressed in white with long Black Hair.
