Appearance

While their capabilities often make them rather difficult to spot at first, the Rakshasa's true form is one said by many to be rather remarkable (in the most frightening way).

Behavior

Rakshasa are often shown as evil, chaotic and demonic creatures, doing what they want, regardless of the consequences. They are vampiric and will steal life force from people and will do evil acts. Some were said to possibly be humans who were particularly wicked in life.

Abilities

The abilities of Rakshasa are varied by legend. The commonly attributed abilities are sorcery, illusions, shapeshifting, and the power to steal life force. The sorcery is often powerful as some are capable of great feats with it. Stealing life force is often recorded as taking it from humans for sustenance.
