(Hindu Spirit)PRETA

Also known as HUNGRY GHOSTS

Preta are hungry ghosts. Very hungry ghosts. They Come in thirty six varieties and all have to put up with other peoples crap!

They are the spirits of people who were consumed by greed in the mortal realm and are now cursed with an insatiable appetite for human doo doo. This is rather unfortunate at the best of times, but more so for Preta who have enormous mouths and bellies but tiny throats.

Originally from the Hindu belief, Preta were adopted by the Chinese in the third century. They probably arrived looking for a feed!
