Chimerical Youkai with the head of a monkey, the body of a tiger, and a snake for a tail. Though more intelligent than most beasts, their behavior is more akin to wild animals than other, more civilized Youkai. A Nue in thick fog or darkness can merge with its surroundings to become intangible and almost impossible to detect, a cloud of black in the night. This ability makes them highly efficient predators and, if they can be persuaded to ally themselves to a sentient creature, assassins.
