Nue Picture

Picked Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey back up again recently. Good lord...how did I put it down in the first place? This is such a cool game...
Yeah, anyways; this is a Nue. According to the Shin Megami Tensei description, they are mythological creatures that have the head of a monkey, the arms and legs of a tiger, the body of a raccoon-dog, and the tail of a snake head. It was said to have fallen from a dark cloud floating around the sick Japanese Emperor's palace after an arrow was shot into the cloud. It was later dumped into the sea.
