Yamigame (yamigame family)
Turtle inhabiting the coastline of Yamijima Island in the Shikai Region, an area known among seafarers as the site of several shipwrecks. This location, coupled with the markings on the turtle's shell which are said to resemble a facial expression of rage, has spawned a myth that the turtle is inhabited by the vengeful spirits of those that were lost at sea.
In the past, fishermen feared that the turtles were cursed. Hence, they were known to go so far as to cut their precious fishing nets to release any Yamigame turtles that were snared in them.
