- Raiju are one of the few edible enemies in the Abyss.
Raijū, or "lightning beast," is a legendary creature from Japanese mythology which serves Raijin, Shinto god of lightning. Capable of assuming the shape of a cat, fox, weasel, wolf, or ball of lightning, it is generally tame, but dashes about during storms wreaking havoc on anything it touches.
