"Treat me kindly, feed me a meal, and give me a place to stay and I will be sure to reward you handsomely. I will vanish without a trace, and return to my lonely mountain to await my next visit."

Spirit derives from Japanese mythology.

Ouni is a kind of mountain hag that looks like an ugly old woman with an angry face and a body covered in long, black hair. She lives deep in the mountains, away from civilization, and only occasionally appears before humans.

Unlike most Yamanba, Ouni are friendly towards humans who treat them kindly. They occasionally visit rural houses or mountain huts late at night. When this happens, Ouni asks the owners of the house to give her free lodging and a meal for the night. If they are kind and invite her in, during the night she spins an enormous amount of thread for the family and then vanishes without a trace.

Ouni means ramie peat - a fibrous plant that is used to make thread, and peat, the rotten muck found in swamps that comes from rotting plant matter. The first part of her name comes from the thread which she spins at night, usually in the form of ramie. The second part refers to her filthy, black, hairy body, which makes her look like she is covered in dead vegetation.

Healers blesses its summoner and allies, including summoned spirits.

Summoning ingredients requires: Ramie Fiber
