The Sucoyan looks like an old woman by day. At night, she takes off her skin and hides it in a hollow of a tree.
She shape-shifts into a corpse candle and searches for her prey.
Usually the victim is a sleeping person that she’ll drain.
Like all other vampires who can remove their skin. . . If you can find her skin and rub it with salt, she won’t be able to use it and die in the sunlight.
The Sucoyan is from the West Indies.
Fascinating creature. And glad to have you back 🙂
Glad to be back. I spent all day trying to get some posts ready. 😀
So glad you liked the Soucayant 🙂
Ooo, looking forward to see what you came up with. And I had never thought about vampire-like creatures who have to shed their skin. I’ll have to look at your other posts about them. See if I can group them together in one story.
