Kakai are the spirits of humanoid incarnated in the body of carrion birds who fed on the corpse. It is said that many cultures practice sky burial, and that somtime the soul of a brave warrior is passed to the bird which delivered it spirits. Kakai are fearsome hunters, still possessing some of it skills as a great warrior but the body of a great bird. It is said that the personality of kakai are more feral version of their previous self, having merged with the mighty bird instead of completely overwriting it.
