旧地獄に棲む嫌われ妖怪の一人、火車である。葬式になると現れて、死体を奪っていくという不吉な上に悲しみに追い打ちをかける嫌な妖怪だ。

One of the hated youkai residing in the former hell, she is called a kasha. She shows up at funerals and tries to steal the corpses. This kind of rubbing-salt-in-the-wounds behavior makes her a much despised youkai.

何処かで葬式があると尻尾が二つある黒猫の姿で登場し、その存在に気付かないといつの間にか死体が消えてしまう。

No matter where the funeral is held, if you see a black cat with two tails, the corpse will be stolen when you let your guard down.

何の為に死体を持ち去っているのだろうか。彼女は死体を何処かに溜めている様子は無い。どうやら、猫が鼠を捕まえる行動の延長だと思われる。猫には動く物を追いかけてしまう習性があるが、火車には死者から抜け出る瞬間の魂を追いかける習性があるようだ。

Why does she take away the corpses? It doesn’t seem like she’s collecting them somewhere. It appears that it’s just an extension of cats catching mice. Cats have the habit of chasing moving things; kasha have the habit of chasing the souls that slip out of people the out of people the moment they die.

猫の中には長く生きて妖怪になる者も居る。そういう妖怪の殆どが偏った食事が原因だが、何を口にしたかによってなる妖怪が違う。人間を喰らうと普通の猫又になるが、火車は死体や幽霊を喰らった猫なのだろう。

Some cats live long and become youkai. Depending on the food they eat though, they will become different youkai. If they eat humans then will become a normal nekomata; kasha are probably those cats that ate corpses or spirits.

彼女の特徴は、死体や霊と会話が出来る事だ。霊は幽霊や怨霊など、口を持たない者でも大丈夫だ。死者の殆どが死ぬという事が理解できてなく、明日の予定など能天気な事を話すらしい。彼女はそれがお気に入りだそうだ。

Her special trait is being able to communicate with corpses and spirits. Spirits are yuurei, anryou and so on. Even if they have no mouth, she would no problem conversing with them. Many corpses don’t realize that they are already dead; they will apparently say thoughtless things like what they planned to do tomorrow. She seems be interested in these things.

不吉な妖怪ではあるが、生きている人間には興味が無い。だからといって、人間を自分の手で殺す事も好まない。妖怪の手に掛かってしまうと死体の会話が面白くならないのである。人間に死が忍び寄るのを、じっと狙っているのだ。

Although she is an ominous youkai, she has no interest in living humans. She doesn't like killing people herself either. The conversations won’t be interesting if a human is killed by a youkai. She is always on the hunt for people who are on the verge of death.

性格は明るくて単純だ。裏表は少なく、目の前しか見えていない。

Her personality is simple and bright. She is not two-faced and is always looking forward.


猫車

Nekoguruma[1]

彼女が押している手押し車は、お燐の猫車と呼ばれ、恐らくこの世界で一番死体を乗せている手押し車である。

The pushcart she uses is called Orin’s wheelbarrow, it’s probably the pushcart that has carried the most corpses in this world.

死体を奪う手口は「偶然落ちていた死体を拾う」「人が目を離した隙に盗む」「盗んだ死体をむしろにくるみ猫車に乗せる」というものだ。特別妖怪らしい方法を使う事はないが、成功率は高い。

Her modi operandi of taking corpses include “picking up corpses that accidentally fell on the ground", “stealing it moment people move their eyes away (from corpses)”, “hiding the stolen corpse with a straw mat in the wheelbarrow”. She does not use any youkai-related ability in particular, but the success rate is very high.

人間は盗まれて困る大切な物は守るが、死体が盗まれるとは思っていないので守らない。道端で堂々と運ばれている物がまさか死体だとは思わない。そういう理由で、彼女は死体を盗み放題なのだろう。

Humans protect important things that will give them trouble if stolen, but no one would have ever thought that corpses will also be stolen. Thus no one would think the things she is so confidently carrying are actually corpses. For that reason, she steals as many corpses as she likes.


対策

Countermeasures

盗まれたくなければ葬式の時は死体から目を離さないようにしよう。

If you don't want it to be stolen, don't take your eyes off the corpse during the funeral.

しっかりと埋葬してしまえば、もう興味は無くなる様である。

She doesn't seem to be interested in bodies that were firmly buried.

しかし、それ以外の被害は報告されていない。ピンピンしている人間には余り興味が無いようである。不吉だが危険性は少ないだろう。

Aside form that, there hasn't been any stories of people being harmed by her. She doesn't seem to be interested in lively humans. Though she is a bit ominous, her threat level should be quite low.
