Description: Obakes are quite physically diverse, averaging between two and nine feet tall with slight to brawny builds. They appear like a humanoid with a mix of features from different animals, plants, and natural features or events found in their Spirit Domain, but can vary from less human like in appearance to more human like but with some unique features. Some may also shape shift into a nature form, a more wild and sometimes more bestial looking form that can sometimes look quite different from their natural form, and a more human like form with only a hint of unique features. Sometimes they can resemble other common humanoids with lands near theirs instead of Humans though. Their appearance can vary drastically depending on the chosen Spirit Domain, as well as Variability and Spirit Variability options chosen.
