Aspen is believed to be the wood that made Christ’s cross and thus protection of all things evil.

It is a favorite for making stakes, and destroying vampires. If you lay a few branches on a vampire or which is grave it will keep them from raising.

We’ve gone over many witches that either act like vampires or turn into a vampire after death.
The Porcelnik is one of those vampires.
In life, the Porcelnik lives in Russia. He’s a human sorcerer that displays vampire activities.


The town’s people call him Porcelnik or “The Harmer”.
Once the sorcerer dies, the townsfolk burn his body on a pyre of Aspen wood to keep him from rising and becoming an Eretik vampire revenant.
