Here is some of the real-world history behind the demon Mokoi, courtesy of the Megami Tensei wiki:

Mokoi are spirits of evil in Australian Murngin folklore that live in the jungle and move at night. They are the reincarnation of the “shadow soul” of humans and kill those who use dark magic. They would also kidnap and eat children at night, sometimes causing war with humans.

Mokoi is a demon that made its debut in the Megami Tensei franchise with the Devil Summoner: Soul Hacker game. It initially appeared as a member of the Night Race, and though it varied in race across several entries, in Shin Megami Tensei V it will return to this original Race.

Shin Megami Tensei V is scheduled to arrive on Switch on November 12. Previous coverage for the game, including earlier daily demon videos and other news such as the recently announced DLC information, can be found here.
