Jitti found inspiration when an artist used him as a model and painted buffalo horns on his head. At that moment, he was reminded of a chapter in the Thai epic story Ramakien, part-ticularly the part about Torapee and Torapa. The story involves a giant named Nontakal who guarded the gates of Krai Lat Mountain. After harassing one of the angels, Nontakal was cursed by Lord Shiva and was reborn as a buffalo named Torapa; the darkest part of his destiny is that his son, Torapee, would have to kill him in order for the curse to be lifted.
