Rangda is the Queen of the Leyaks. The Leyak comprises of just a head with its entrails such as its heart, liver and lungs hanging from its severed neck. It has two bulging eyes protruding from its head, sharp tusks and a menacing face. Its head is covered with long black hair. Leyaks are cannibals by nature in as flying heads, they haunt graveyards and feed on corpses if they cannot find any pregnant women or new born babies.

There are only two other Leayks in existence, who are both male. Rangda is usually seen being followed by a host of Demons. Rangda is a widow witch by day who transforms into her Leyak, flying head form by night. Statues of her can be seen in Bali.
