Duppy


Duppy originated in Jamaican lore. A vampiric spirit or benevolent spirit created by the shadow of the dead person. They’re feared because their breath can cause illness and if you’re touched, “Duppy boxing” can cause seizures.

In Caribbean lore, Duppies are called Jumbies.
You can conjure a Duppy by throwing Rum coins into a grave. They attack the living and cause poltergeist activities once raised.

  1. Now I want to know what duppy boxing is, and what rum coins are.

  2. Ditto on the rum coins. Maybe a coin that’s been dipped or soaked in rum?
