Haimushi, Haishaku, Kiukan肺積
はいしゃく

TRANSLATION: lung shaku (a type of infection)
HABITAT: the lungs

APPEARANCE: Haishaku is a lumpy creature that sticks in the lungs and causes sickness. Its nose opens directly into its lugs, so it is extremely sensitive to smells. Haishaku strongly dislike pleasant and foul smells. They prefer strong fishy and raw smells. They also love spicy food.

INTERACTIONS: People infected with haishaku have the same smell and taste preferences as the haishaku. They also commonly develop depression.

Haishaku infections can be treated with gentle and shallow acupuncture.
