Once normal animals, the pishacha have been twisted with dark magic. There are four common forms of pishacha: a tiger, an elephant, a crocodile, and a whale. In battle, pishacha must be controlled directly by powerful magic users, typically those that created them in the first place. A pishacha's monstrous appearance and enhanced abilities do not disappear when this connection is lost, however, their mind returns to that of their base animal. In the case of elephants, their souls have been combined with those of ordinary soldiers, causing them to become bipedal, with human-like hands and an intelligence, skill, and strategy unseen in normal battle elephants.
