I think the name Jahi in E & G is a reference to the Persian/Zorastrian
goddess/demon of that name. She is known for lasciviousness and as a
"polluting whore" and the source of the menstrual curse on
She is cognate to the Judeo-Kabbalistic personage named Lilith whose
mating with Adam was also thought to be corrupting and the source of
many demons, lamia/snake women, the origin of vampires etc. etc.
I think this allusion supports the rest of your post rather well
(more than the Japanese, I mean). Not to mention the character
Jahlee in Short Sun......
