In India, a vampire-witch exist called Asrapa.

She wanders naked through cemeteries where she feeds on the flesh of men, women, or children. She’s not fussy on whether the flesh is from the living or the dead.


Asrapa is a shape-shifter who can raise the dead by a gift given to her by the Goddess Kali.
She’s believed to be the daughter of the Sage Kasyape and his wife Muni the daughter of Daksha. Others believe Brahma was angry and thought of a monster creating the Asrapa meaning blood drinker from his excess energy.

A Bloody Tribute

A mutual friend introduced Peter and I some time ago. I want to say a year, but it seems longer than that. I’ve enjoyed reading his work ever since. He gave us a poem this time around. 😀

A Bloody Tribute by Peter Davis-Parker

They danced for him that night;
they danced the dance of the dead.

He flew atop the chimney stacks
the swells of warmth kept his flesh aloft,
their ‘charms’ warded against him.

He landed in the blackest of alleys,
the rain it nary touches his flesh nor cloth
knowing better than to incite the wrath of hell’s oldest son.

He walked softly through the backstreets
witnessed by many,
seen by not one.

He came upon the village limits,
upon a working girl did his blackest eyes spied.

Now chosen he came upon her with ungodly speed and
sucked her dry;
sucked of her as she no doubt had suckled countless others that very eve.

He shed not a drop and lay her on the village square,
a warning yet apology.
His thirst sated for now.

They knew the monster’s wrath and so tomorrow night they would draw straws
as they had now for as long as their memory stands.
The next night he’ll be given new tribute.

What will be has been and will be
and shall ever be again

Flesh Eating Vampires

The Vis hunts the Lakaliai People of New Britten. It flies at night in search of prey. It uses long shiny talons to rip out its victims eyes before drinking his blood and consuming its flesh.


Loup Carou

Louisiana’s Honey Island Swamp hides the Loup Carou. (Lou CA rou)

This bi-ped, hairy vampire creature is said to stand over seven feet tall, and to weigh more than 400 pounds.
It smells of death, has sickly yellow eyes that are set wide apart on its head.

As the legend goes, the Loup Carou was a child that got lost in the swamp. There’s a chance it was abandoned there.

An alligator mother raised him as her own. It lives in an area of the swamp that can only be reached by boat but he often finds his way to civilization to feed on humans and livestock.

Some Irish Vampires

Sile na Gig
Other names Shee-lah na Gig, An Chailleach Beara (the Old Woman of Beara), Black Annis, Clotha, Hag, Old Hag, Sheelagh na Gig, Sila na Gig
In Celtic lore of Ireland Sile na Gig was a type of vampiric earth spirit or mother goddess from which all life came forth. She was very ugly, she had an extended vulva, pot belly, twisted face and withered breasts. Her image was still found even after it was outlawed by the Church. Its possible that Sile na Gig was a little-known Celtic goddess by the name of Clotha. She was the embodiment of battle and weaver of soldier’s burial shrouds. The goddess had similar traits to the Banshee, she washed bloody shrouds at the riverbank too.

Dus Duce
In Celtic lore there is a vampire demon called dus which means specter. He consumes the flesh and blood of humans

Other names Neam Mare-bub, Murbhheo, Heamh-mairbh
In Irish folklore there is a vampire Revenant that’s created through magic, it’s called neamh-mhairbh meaning the undead. It feeds off of human blood. Neamh-mhairbh isn’t a species of vampire but a vampire that’s created through magic.
This sounds great..magic making vampires!
Abhartach (remember him?) was considered a neamh-mhairbh because it was his own magic that allowed him to return
