The Mikoshi-Nyūdō is a creature with origins in Japanese mythology, legend and folklore.
The Mikoshi-Nyūdō looks like an ordinary, but tall, wandering Buddhist monk. Until you look up at it, that is.
Its behavior seems to vary as any other humanoid race. It is neither more inclined toward positive or negative behavior.
The Mikoshi-Nyūdō seems to possess a supernatural form of Size Shifting or Height Shifting. The creature is already tall in stature, but if one should look up at it, it starts to grow. The higher one looks, attempting to witness its entire height, the higher it grows.
