Rinka Images

Rinka (燐火) is a type of Demon that appears all over the world under various names including Demon-Fire, Azul, Irrlicht, Will o' the Wisp and Ignis Fatuus.

Overview[]

The true nature of Rinka is unknown, even to exorcists, with multiple theories being postulated. Some believe they are the souls of the dead, fires of hell, goblins, fairies or the temporary form of sacred foxes.[1]

In at least one case, Satan took the form of a Rinka before the development of his ego lead to him possessing human form.[2][3]

Appearance[]

Rinka appear as simple balls of blue fire flicking in the air or close to the ground.

Powers and Abilities[]

While the exact powers of Rinka are unknown due to the primary example being the immature Satan, the following list covers the abilities he displayed while his was still believed to be a simple Rinka -:

Flame Generation: Rinka showed the capacity to generate flames strong enough to blast away objects and destroy simple structures.[4]

Barrier Generation: At least momentarily, creating a barrier against impact appears to be within the capacity of Rinkas. [5]

Trivia[]

  • Rinka are based on Will-o'-the-wisp, a type of natural phenomenon created by chemical reactions in the air that appear in global folklore due to their previously unknown origin.
