  • Shikome are ominous beings of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted as ugly women with blackened teeth, sagging breasts, and beast-like features. They spend their time trying to make themselves beautiful, but it’s usually useless. Shikome are also quite dangerous, and have tremendous leaping abilities.
