付喪神 - Household items that have come to life
An everyday item or tool that has become a Yokai. It is thought they gain a spirit after one hundred years2, and thus a degree of sapience. Most are benign—either guardians or tricksters, though a few will harm humans. These spirits may be angry at being thrown out by their human masters, while others may protect members of the household. It depends on how the previous owners or how those who discover the spirit treat it. With care, some malevolent spirits can be appeased.
