The Blauts Avger meaning “blood sucker” is one of the vampires that hunts throughout Bavaria and Southern Germany.
It’s believed to have originated in the Bosnia-Herzegovina area.
This vampire is created in one of the strangest ways I’ve ever seen *wink*
The Bluats Avger carries a handful of dirt from its tomb, within his tightly clenched fist. He force feeds, the person he’d like to convert. If that person eats the dirt, they’ll be transformed into this species of vampire.
If all these Blutsauger (singular and plural form is identical; this is nowadays German word for blood sucker(s)) had known you – they might have wanted to be more clever in order not to be detected and/or found out that easily.
Great piece as usual, Mari! 🙂
I believe this is the name the townsfolk gave them. I agree, a monster usually won’t call himself a monster in front of others. 😀 Thank you.
