Somewhat more insidious, if less conscious, than the Green Energy Demons (q.v.), are the Akishra, astral worms that "ride" human nervous systems and feed off of the anguish specifically caused by drug addiction, physical pain, and sexual excess. These parasites force their 'hosts' into behaviors that will reap the desired sensations. There are Alcohol Akishra, Nicotine Akishra, Glazed Donut Akishra, Television Akishra, etc.
