Romania and some of it’s Vampires Part 2


Moloi are Romanian vampire spirits. These vampires can only life if it eats human hearts. It’s created when one of its parents kills an illegitimate child. A girl is called Moloica.


The Necurat or Orgoi means “accursed or “dishonest” in Romania. Romanians call all of their vampire creatures this. It’s believed using this name instead of a specific name will keep from calling the vampire to them.

Another name for Vampires in Romania is Baboana for females and Babon for males.

Baba Coajo

A vampire forest spirit in Romania is a bloodthirsty monster.
She’s described as half bear and half woman. Baba Coajo pronounced Baba Co-ya means the Old Woman of the Tree Bark. She’s also called “Queen of the Forest” and has total control over the evil within the woods.

She is very dangerous evil entity. She catches children who wander into the forest alone, or those who’ve wandered away from their parent. She will consume their bodies and lock their souls in Elderberry trees where they rot away.

    And there is another question: Is Baba Coajo’s origin in the Carpathian Mountains? And I also ask myself if Vlad the impaler would have tolerated her/it near him?

      That is a great question, which gave me a few story ideas….
      So, I may be hush hush on this one. Thanks for asking, without that question I wouldn’t have thought about it. 😀 😀 😀

    This is great Mari. I am writing a vampire book in the Spring. I wrote one with the characters based in Sofia, Bulgaria but visiting Romania. Now I think I want to go the whole way and get into the Romanian occult history. You know a lot; can I consult with you for advice on this?
    btw ‘Moloi’ reminds me of ‘Morlock’ in H G Wells Time Machine. They were cannibals
