Diwazib Hunting Spirit

Spirit of the Head Hunt

One of the Demas, his role involves a fair bit of hack-work. As he needs to keep a clear head, and two heads are not better than one when you need to focus on the one you are about to lop off, he is firmly in favor of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Although he is a spirit himself, he does not partake of them.
