The Rakshasa also known as the Tiger-Man has the ability to change his appearance into any person he wants. The O’Connells encounter him when they are looking for the legendary Eye of Shiva at a fairground in Chicago where he is being held by Jonathan Carnahan's old pal Charlie Royce being shown to the people at the fair as a display. He tricks Jonathan into getting him out of his cage and soon begins his chase for the Eye of Shiva. It is quit possible that he originates from India and may have been a guardian of the Temple of Shiva.
