A torturous beast of Japanese belief. The Kamaitachi are weasels that move at the speed of light and hunt in packs of three. The first knocks their victim to the ground while the second one attacks with its teeth. The third licks the wound of the victims causing the wound to partially heal. This process continues until the victim slowly dies.
