Quoth the Ijiraq:

Kith Excerpt:

Scientific minds cite the Ijiraq as methane escaping from melting ice. An unwitting target comes into contact with the gas while exploring. By breathing in the gas, the victim experiences paralyzing feelings of paranoia, fear, and even the occasional hallucination. More Folk-lore-inspired minds tell of a certain Masked-creature that lived between the world of the Dream and the world of the Dead. There once was a Gundohgi (Family) of Nunnehi that went hunting under the great-lights of the north but got lost where the wall between worlds grew thin. Unable to find their way back to either world, they stayed there, trapped between realms, until they vanished from both worlds altogether. The only things left behind were their shame, fear, and inhibition, which is felt by others who get too close to the lost creature‘s ghost.

The Ijiraq has nothing to say on the matter. An incredibly shy family, their frailties are so powerful that it spills over into any other beings that the Ijiraq comes into contact with. Even if someone isn’t aware of an Ijiraq’s proximity, they will still feel awkward, unsettled, and more than a little paranoid that they are being watched by hidden eyes. Which they are.

The Ijiraq of today make their way the best that they can. They can be great allies for those who take the time, or they can forever be set apart, hidden behind their masks and secrets.
