Historical Background

In Japanese and Chinese folklore, the Hakutaku (or Bai Ze) was a creature with 9 eyes, 6 horns, and a man-like face on a cow or ox-like body. 3 of the eyes were on the face in a triangular arrangement, and 3 were lined on the left side of its body and 3 were lined on the right side of its body. It was known for the ability to speak in human languages. This beast appeared to the Yellow Emperor of China and detailed what all 11,520 types of demons, monsters, and spirits were and what they could do. In Japanese temples, the Hakutaku's image is used to ward off disease and disasters.

Hakutaku's spawn item, Hakutaku Eye Cluster is tied to ancient Chinese philosophy, specifically in its ingredients. Hakutaku Eye Cluster is made from 5 different Hakutaku eyes. Each of these eyes represents 1 of the 5 Chinese elements, specifically Burning Hakutaku Eye represents Fire-element, Damp Hakutaku Eye represents Water-element, Golden Hakutaku Eye represents Metal-element, Wooden Hakutaku Eye represents Wood-element, and Earthen Hakutaku Eye represents Earth-element.
