Rakshasa is a demon. He doesn't know where he came from or how he came to be in the first place. All he knows is that he feeds on the dying thoughts of men and that he is hungry.
Engendered in ancient times in the north of India, he wanders, doing exactly what he wants, killing when and where he pleases until he attracts the attention of a god. Fleeing for his life, Rakshasa must now come to terms with what he is and his place in the scheme of things. Hiding from the gods, he delves into the world of men, following individual lives and impacting on them. As his knowledge grows, so does his dissatisfaction and he wonders whether he must always be a demon or whether he can change his nature.
