Character of the week...
Yuki-Onna, The Snow Spirit

Yuki-Onna is a spirit in Japanese folklore and literally means "Snow Woman". With her extremely pale white skin she blends with the snowy environments, with only her bright red lips standing out against the white snow. Yuki-Onna is mysterious and beautiful, but also dangerous; She preys on victims to leech or freeze them, trapping them in icestorms or luring them around until they die of the cold. Some say Yuki-Onna is the spirit of a young woman who perished in the snow a long time ago.

Design Yuki-Onna!

- Yuki-Onna has many stories, characteristics and interpretations: you are free to pick any of them!
