The Raksasa are a supernatural race of mystics and astrologers. They stand 9 to 10 feet tall and weight about 500 pounds, and rippling with powerful muscles. Their skin is usually purple, but can also be ivory black or rich dark brown. They typically wear blue or green silk sarongs. Raksasas have the power to change their shape at will and appear as animals or humans. They are very long-lived, but not immortal. They gained supernatural powers by studying the movements of the stars and planets. Raksasa subsist on mainly on large mammals, including sheep and goats.

According to legends, the raksasa was the original inhabitants of Langa long before humans. The city of Champaka, one of the most beautiful cities at the time, was constructed by raksasa builders. Two hundred years after their arrival to Langa, the raksasa were defeated by an alliance of human tribes, and they fled to Bakasura.
