"I'm not the protagonist of a novel or anything. I'm just a college student who likes to read, like you could find anywhere. But... if, for argument's sake, you were to write a story with me in the lead role, it would certainly be... a tragedy."
— Ken Kaneki, Tokyo Ghoul
Ken Kaneki is the protagonist of Tokyo Ghoul anime and manga series. Ken was an ordinary student living a normal life, until he was transformed into a ghoul - a humanoid organism that feeds on flesh.
Only ghouls have an organ known as kakuhou, or "red wrap." After receiving one in transplant, Ken became a "one-eyed ghoul" or "half-human." He then had to learn to live as a ghoul amid a spurt of murders in Tokyo. He has gone by the aliases Eyepatch, Centipede, Haise Sasaki, Black Reaper, One-Eyed King, and Dragon.

The xenomorph alien, also called Xenomorph XX121 or Internecivus raptus, is a fictional creature from the Alien film franchise. It has been included in numerous movies, comic books, video games, novels, and merchandise.
The aliens have a distinct and vicious life cycle. They begin as an egg, which hatches into a parasitic "face-hugger." True to its name, the facehugger latches on to the face of a host, which could be any creature from as small as a cat to as large as an elephant. It impregnates the host with a "chest-burster" larva which, as its name suggests, bursts from the host's chest before growing into an adult within hours.
The xenomorph aliens take on the traits of their host through an exchange of DNA. The bipedal alien in this drawing guide had a human host. Quadrupeds like dogs and cattle produce four-legged aliens that bite rather than using their arms. When the host is a Predator, another fictional creature, the Predalien results.
Did you know? The xenomorph alien was designed by the Swiss surrealist artist H.R. Giger, who is famous for his futuristic images of the link between humans and machines.

The plague or bubonic plague is a fever caused by a bacterium called Yersinia pestis. It is very contagious, transmitted from rats and mice to humans via the vector of a flea bite.
The plague has caused a number of devastating epidemics throughout history. For example, in the fourteenth century, the Black Death took the lives of one-third of Europe's population.
Plague doctors were physicians who treated people infected with bubonic plague. From the 1600s to the 1800s, some of these doctors wore the characteristic plague mask and waxed robes. At the time, people had not yet discovered microscopic germs; they thought that disease was spread by "putrid air." The beaklike mask was filled with aromatics, such as herbs, spices, flowers, and straw, to hide the scent of the ill, supposedly protecting the doctor in the process.
Today, plague doctors are most often seen in steampunk media.

The term demon, also spelled daemon or daimon, can be traced to ancient Greek religion. It described a supernatural power or god. In some myths, they were considered lower gods that were still superior to humans.
Why are devils or demons depicted as having horns? This, too, is a product of mythology. Many ancient legends included creatures that were part human and part animal, having, for example, the horns of a goat. These concepts were later adopted in Christian art. Japanese myth also contains human-animal spirits, and these often appear in anime and manga.
Other popular culture references to such creatures span countless movies, books, and television series, including The Golden Compass and Charmed.
