Turdak is a Tibetan lesser deity associated with illness and death. He is a servant of Yama and is depicted as a humanoid skeleton. While Turdak can bring illness and plague upon mankind, he also has the power to cure illness, or expel illness-causing demons if a dance is performed for him.
Turdak is also seen in Hindu mythology, where he is again the servant of Yama, judge of the dead. Turdak's role has changed, and he is considered an executioner of judged souls. After Yama has pulled a soul from a corpse and sentenced it to Hell, it is Turdak's job to haul that soul to the proper level of Hell.
"Origin: Tibet. The ruler of disease. He is Death. He appears as a skeleton, and brings about disease and death. He can also purify disease by dancing."
