A Bao A Qu is a Malay myth described in Jorge Luis Borges's 1967 "Book of Imaginary Beings", who claimed to have found it in a book on Malay witchcraft. His skin is fuzzy like the skin of a peach and his color goes from transparent to bright blue.
He lives on the 1st step of the Tower Of Victory in Chitor. The tower consists of many spiraling steps, in which one could see the most beautiful scenery in the entire world. He waits for a man brave enough to climb the tower by sleeping in the form of a translucent blob. He shall awaken from his slumber when someone arrives. When a climber gets to the top he shall achieve Nirvana, all the while followed by A Bao A Qu. A majority of the time the climber won't reach the top and he will become transparent and descend to the tower's bottom to become dormant once again. He will start crying so softly that it sounds like the rustling of silk.
