The mask of a Yamask

Special abilities

Due to being a human long ago, it has memories of being a human. If someone wears the mask Yamask carries, they will become possessed by the Yamask in question.

Major appearances

Yamask made an appearance in BW014, where it was causing havoc in the Nacrene City Museum because its mask had been put on display after it accidentally dropped it while sleeping. In the end Aloe, along with Ash, Iris, Cilan and Kidachi gained an understanding with it and gave its mask back and Yamask left the museum peacefully.
