|Origins||Indian and/or Native American Mythology, Legend and Folklore|
The Acheri is a creature with origins in Indian mythology, legend and folklore. Though, there is some confusion among older and more contemporary sources, because it seems that the meaning of the term 'Indian' was never made entirely clear.
Modern fiction claims that 'Indian' refers to Native American mythology, legend and folklore, while older sources claim that the creature is native to the Hindu mythology, legend and folklore of India. There are even older accounts referring to a creature by the same name, native to Egypt, and similar in power and connotation to the Set Animal.
Though, due to each account keeping intact the creature's mystical nature and ability to shapeshift, it is quite possible that each account is equally viable, and neither is to be dismissed for lack of accuracy.
