Di-cang is one of the sub-types of the Elemental seeming. In Buddhist lore, Di-cang means “Womb of the Earth”. As one of the bodhisattvas, he was said to calm the suffering of those poor souls lost in the many hells. Born of the earth, one might suggest that Di-cang is a kind of “jewel elemental”, for in his hand he usually holds a precious gem that salves the pain of others. The changeling of this kith tend to possess mostly human features, but have skin or extremities studded with various jewels (some might even have multi-faceted eyes such as rubies, sapphires or emeralds). Their blessing is the Peace of Suffering.
