Today is vampire Wednesday. We will look at the last of the Aswang Vampires; these are variations of the Aswang. I hope you enjoyed our last few weeks getting up close with the Aswangs.
A species of vampire that is said to be as old as the Philippines. The Danag co existed with humankind and was even accredited as the first cultivators of the TARO plant. One day a woman cut her finger and the Danag that was working by her side offered to clean the wound for her. As it sucked on the wound, it realized it enjoyed the taste and couldn’t stop itself. The poor woman died. The Danag has practiced vampire blood drinking ever since.
A Mandragore takes the form of a very beautiful woman. She only appears at night and uses her beauty to seduce men into marrying her. With a husband, she has a live in blood source. She can fly and is susceptible to sword and knife attacks.
