Bushyastas are divs who prey upon the industrious and propagate laziness.[1]


A bushyasta is a gaunt figure with ashy yellow skin and a feathered mask covering most of its face, save for its wide, fang-filled mouth.[1]


Bushyastas promote sloth and try to lull people to sleep so that they cannot achieve their goals. Keeping mortals from productive toil is their driving purpose. They often haunt construction sites, especially those of civil or religious importance, and particularly savour disrupting creations that would be a focus of pride and glory for a community.[1]

The obsessive compulsive hatred of bushyastas is that of pleasantly fragrant odours. This abhorrence led to a custom of perfuming the dead in order to keep them away from funeral services.[1]
