Jinouga is a large lion-like monster that appears late a night in Altonia. These huge animals look like a hybrid between a lizard, lion, and dragon. They are nocturnal, but rarely they come out during the daytime, however only in areas where there's no competition over food sources.
This large creature is also known as the firefly keeper, because it is often seen with a swarm of blue fireflies flying around it for protection as the Jinouga gets its energy from the bugs themselves to power its lightning bolts. This is harmless to the fireflies. No one's sure how it can do this but in some cases it can absorb so much power from these small insects that it can shoot lightning of up to 2000 volts of electricity, enough to sting 30 men at once!
