The caster contacts and makes a deal with a Mujina, a magical badger. In the enchanted forests of Mount Shinuyama live animals gifted with supernatural longevity and magic abilities. When an animal gets older and wiser it becomes increasingly more powerful. The Mujina is a badger several centuries old. Gifted with shapeshifting abilities and magical powers it loves to cause mischief and even harm to travelers and unwary peasants. A favorite guise of many Mujinas is that of a Noppera-bo, a faceless apparition that drives men mad with fear. The Mujina is attuned to magic and its powers are greater where magic is strong.
