A keramat animal is a sacred beast, a creature with the ability to come and go like a phantom, trampling sugarcane or raiding livestock with impunity. It’s always distinguished by some peculiarity, such as a missing tusk or a rare albino color. But the most common indicator is a withered or maimed foot.
Stories of ghostly or sacred animals are common in Malaysia. In fact, the elephant referred to as Gajah Kramat that Ren mentions in the book was actually a real elephant who was famous for eluding hunters and committing all sorts of mischief as he wandered around.

“The body must be made whole again when you die. Anything added must be removed, and anything missing replaced—otherwise your soul won’t rest in peace.”
The Chinese have a tradition of exhuming a grave, and washing and cleaning the bones (see the beginning of chapter 33, where it’s described in more detail). It was seen as respect for the departed, and naturally, great care was taken to ensure that nothing was lost. When my father was a child, he told me that he participated in such a ceremony for one of his family members, and how small the bones were when they were unearthed. It must have been both strange and solemn, to handle the actual remains of people. This respect for the body is probably true across all cultures. As a child, I ...more
