They are the "heavenly dogs" who are both malevolent and benevolent. They can appear as dogs or birds and exist in multiple realms and dimensions. They behave much like earthen dogs as they can obey and disobey. They are quite active, love to play pranks, crave attention and will do the most outrageous and crazy things. They are haloed by a powerful surround of ethereal energy that is almost tangible.
As spirit companions they bring you a close connection to inner mysticism and magick. They are loyal, strong-willed, comforting and will give you the direction you need for your life. They can provide you intense focus during meditation as they have the ability to lull you into a primal state of self-awareness. They are quite unique and unusual friends.

Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Tengu is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality there is a way to keep your Tengu under control if you feel it is becoming too energetic, too strong in manifestation or too "in your face". Place the vessel of the Tengu red velvet for at least 2 hours (just a small square of velvet will work),they become subdued and submissive. Only use this technique if you feel the Tengu is becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.Tags: dark arts, Tengu
