The Soucouyant, The Real Blood Sucking Vampires In
The Americas

The Soucouyant, The Real Blood Sucking Vampires

 

by Edward Nikhil Paul

In some of the many assorted South American Caribbean myths and legends, the evil soucouyant is ore then often portrayed as a kindly old woman by day, and a dark spirit demonic vampire creature by night. As a descendent of parents whose many generations can be traced to it's Trinidad and Tobago roots. I can personally attest to hearing many of these strange stories growing up even though I was born in the United States.

These more then just morbid monsters are said to possess the ability to strip off its old haggard wrinkled skin, turn into a terrifying fire creature that flies to the home of it's victims in the shape of a small or sometimes large fireball. It has a ungodly thirst for human blood and several other vampire powers. Many know that a real Soucouyant has been to visit because of the signs that their victims or often changed by the encounter, they are said to become delusional and weakened, beyond recovery.

The soucouyant is believed by some vampire experts to be a true parasitic spirit with only a blood lust for survival. And in recent years tales of these creatures and their evil exploits seem to be occurring through out all of the Americas including the United States and Canada.

The Soucouyant, The Real Blood Sucking Vampires

 

 

The soucouyant or soucriant in Dominican, Trinidadian and Guadeloupean folklore. the vampire witch creature is also known as Ole-Higue or as a true Loogaroo elsewhere in the Caribbean because of it's uncanny ability to shape shift at night and at will. It is always described as a true vampire demon or a vampirism cursed powerful witch that is said it sucks the life blood of preferably sleeping infants, and would then turn into a strange made of fire flying insect or a hairless bat like animal human sized when fully gorged with blood and flee into the night.

Some Islanders believe that the once dispatched this creature can never again assume human form. But many tales tell of them coming back for revenge on those that tried to destroy them. At it's dispatching it then must seek a animal host to possess. A few old stories often told directly to me relate such demonic creatures as becoming what is known today as a true living form of a dreaded chupacabra. I believe that the Puerto Rican el chupacabra might be one of these creatures rather then a wild dog or an experiment gone wild as many do assume.

Only the wicked foul paranormal creature herself it is told could cure those she had infected or drained. That is to break the curse of a person under her spell. This is done by spitting the blood they feed upon back in their victims mouths mixed with their own spittle or bloody vomit. Often the creature does this because they like to to prey upon the family pretending to be a healer and getting the attention from doing a good deed. And those who she chooses not to cure inevitably grow weakened and sickened and then die. But this must be done by forcing the creature under much dearest to do this magical deed. The only more then effective repellent or way to kill the the soucouyant or soucriant is by the use of common house hold cooking or coarse salt, which is sprinkled heavily inside and on the discarded hidden skin. One remedy told to me was to pour a gallon of Holy water over it and add a pound of salt and boil it for 13 days and night adding more Holy water as needed. During this time the creature might attack you and try to retrieve it's skin. If it did so then it could regain human form. My father told me of how his grand Father as a boy helped the men of his village guarded over a boiling pot of skin. He related to me that the soucouyant actually picked off several of the men guarding over it killing them by sucking their bodies completely of blood. Though they succeeded in destroying the skin finally after the 13th day it did not stop the creature in it's new form from killing each of the surviving men's livestock and a few of their family members in the week that followed. Though I do not know how true this particular story is, I can only go by what I was directly told.

In effect the salt holy water and boiling of the wretched skin kills off the soucoyant host body because it cannot regain its day time old woman form. But the creature as many believe is then sent mad or insane looking for a new host body to steal. Since the human form is destroyed the creature can only then take over the body of a dying night creature. That most often of Vampire Bats, mosquitoes, insects such as bedbugs, fleas and centipedes, or a bird like the Vampire Finch or even the most frightening leeches and ticks that live off of blood primarily alone .

I have from several people heard that the vampire can change into an Ocelot, Tayra a Highwoods dog, called a Chien bois. A Green Iguana or the 'so called' Luminous glowing Lizard and the deadly spectacled Caimans .

When speaking with my family members and others who moved to the US in the early 70's maybe mid to late 60's from Trinidad. They often speak or tell their personal stories of actual soucouyant or soucriants stories. They often tell of them pursuing families and also traveling great distances or traveling around the world and taking up residence in other countries only to prey on a specific line of a family. Some relatives of mine will actually tell their children that their great grandmother who they brought to the United States with them was actually a soucouyant or soucriant and they did not find out until it was too late.

I was told as a young boy of 12 that my Great Grand Mother was actually such a creature. They said that the family had disowned her when they first had moved to Puerto Rico finding out her secret quite by accident. They then traveled to Miami leaving her there to fend for herself even though she was of a very advanced age. My Aunt Monique says as far as she knew Great Grand Mother told her she only fed on chickens and small wild animals. And that she would only attack pregnant women because there blood was the best for her to keep her powers and longevity.

When the Soucouyant is out of it's human skin it appears in form that is not human it is often told to appear as a distorted skinless being made of only muscle tissue and bone, nothing more. It has huge eyes and scattered long pointed teeth and a tongues that stretches at times more then a foot long.

The Soucouyant, The Real Blood Sucking Vampires

 

Trinidad & Tobago's Vampire Folklore and Legends

Soucouyants belong to a class of spirits called Jumbies.

A Jumbee, Jumbie or Mendo is a type of mythological spirit or demon in the folklore of some Caribbean countries. Jumbee is the generic name given to all malevolent entities; however, there are numerous kinds of jumbees, that reflect the Caribbean’s complex history and ethnic makeup, drawing on African, Amerindian, East Indian, Dutch, English, and even Chinese mythology. People in English-speaking Caribbean states that were colonized by the British commonly believe in this creature. The belief is also held by practitioners of Obeah, a form of mystical wizardry that encompasses traditional African beliefs and Western European, primarily Anglican, images and beliefs concerning the dead. Various islands – including Antigua and Barbuda in the east, Jamaica in the north, and as far south as Trinidad – have had a long held tradition of folklore that includes the jumbee. Different cultures have different concepts of jumbees, but the general idea is that people who have been evil are destined to become instruments of evil (jumbee) in death.

 

Some believe that soucouyants were brought to the Caribbean from European countries in the form of French vampire-myths. These beliefs intermingled with those of enslaved Africans. In the French West Indies, specifically the island of Guadeloupe, the Soukougnan or Soukounian is a person able to shed his or her skin to turn into a vampirism fireball. In general these figures can be anyone, not only old women, although some affirm that only women could become Soukounian, because only female breasts could disguise the creature's wings.

Many soucouyant are none to gather or live in one village or city, they are usually governed by the most powerful of the group. They have been known to fly great great distances and often do this in some cases just to cause great mischief. Their appetites for blood is said to be ravenous They have been known to suck hole villages dry in a single night.

The term "Loogaroo" also used to describe the soucouyant, possibly comes from the French mythological creature called the Loup-garou, a type of werewolf and is common in the Culture of Mauritius.

In the folk religion of Montserrat, a jumbie is a ghost, or spirit of the dead. Jumbies are said to possess humans during ceremonies called jumbie dances, which are accompanied by jumbie drums. Four couples perform a set of five progressively quicker quadrilles during the jumbie dance, switching out with other couples until someone is eventually possessed by a jumbie. Jumbies receive numerous small offerings from Montserratians, such as a few drops of rum or food; they are also the subject of numerous superstitions. It is believed that the spirit separates from the body three days after death, at which point the havoc begins. Jumbies are believed to have the ability to shape-shift, usually taking the form of a dog, pig, or more likely, a cat.

There are many recommended ways to avoid or escape jumbee encounters:

Leave a pair of shoes outside the house door, so jumbees (who do not have feet) spend the entire night trying to wear the shoes before moving into the house. Leave a heap of sand or salt or rice outside the house door, which compels jumbies to count every grain before the sun rises.

Upon coming home late at night, walking backwards may prevent a jumbee from following one inside. If a jumbee chases a person, crossing a river may stop them. It is believed that jumbees cannot follow over water.

Leaving a rope with many knots outside the door step have distract them. Jumbees love to try to untie knots; in doing so, they may forget about the house occupants.

The Soucouyant, The Real Blood Sucking Vampires

The Soucouyant turning into a large fire insect has been described as a burst of flame that takes the shape of a giant moth- mosquito like insect with great fiery wings at will.

By night though especially during the full and dark of the moon, she strips off her wrinkled human skin in one piece, this is done by distending her jaw and the creature exiting through the open stretching mouth, a weird ritual is then performed, she puts the limp skin in a mortar or large black pot or kettle, muttering strange incantations in a whispering voice.

The large pot (or even as it is described or told by my family members a painted black inside and out large jar) that she keeps it in which is protected by mysterious red painted magical symbols, that which she hides away, and using her great powers she then transforms herself and flies in the shape of a fireball through the darkness, looking for a victim. Still in the ever changing shape of a fireball, the soucouyant enters the home of her intended victim through the keyhole, stove pipe or any small crack or crevice.

Some other often repeated descriptions say she comes as a red hot ember jumping from a fire. Then manifest as a naked skinless woman made of flames. Other stories I heard tell that she appears as a large fiery spider or burning bat. This creature usually attacks sleeping children especially girl babies and women. Pregnant women are usually the main target of the creatures desire. Some believe it is so they can steal the body of the child and grow up once again.

Soucouyants suck the blood of people from under their their arms, between legs, toes fingers or ear lobes and other soft parts while they sleep. If the soucouyant draws out too much blood from her victim, it is believed that the victim will die and become a soucouyant herself, or else perish entirely, leaving her killer to assume her skin. The soucouyant practices witchcraft, voodoo, and black magic. Soucouyants trade the blood of their victims for evil powers with Bazil the demon who resides in the silk cotton tree.

To expose a soucouyant, one should heap 5 or more pounds of cooked rice around the house or at the village cross roads as the creature will be obligated to gather every grain, grain by grain (an almost impossible task to do before dawn) thus being caught in the act. In order to destroy the soucouyant, coarse cooking salt must be placed in the mortar containing the soucouyant's skin. She then cannot put the skin back on and will perish. Belief in Soucouyants is still preserved to some extent in Trinidad. The skin of the soucouyant is said to be very valuable, and to steal one can bring a person great powers as it is used when practicing black magic.

A child born with a deformed face is said to have been a victim.

The Anchimayen (in the mapudungun language, also spelled "Anchimallén" or "Anchimalguén" in Spanish) is a mythical creature in Mapuche mythology. Anchimayens are described as little creatures that take the form of small children, and can transform into fireball flying spheres that emit bright light. They are the servants of a kalku (a type of Mapuche sorcerer), and are created using the corpses of children. Anchimayens are sometimes confused with Kueyen (the Mapuche lunar goddess), because she also produces a bright light.

The Loogaroo is an example of how a vampire belief can result from a combination of beliefs, here a mixture of French and African Vodu or voodoo. The term Loogaroo possibly comes from the French loup-garou (meaning "werewolf") and is common in the culture of Mauritius. However, the stories of the Loogaroo are widespread through the Caribbean Islands and Louisiana in the United States.

Similar female monsters are the Soucouyant of Trinidad, and the Tunda and Patasola of Colombian folklore, while the Mapuche of southern Chile have the bloodsucking snake known as the Peuchen. Aloe vera hung backwards behind or near a door was thought to ward off vampiric beings in South American superstition.

Aztec mythology described tales of the Cihuateteo, skeletal-faced spirits of those who died in childbirth who stole children and entered into sexual liaisons with the living, driving them mad. During the late 18th and 19th centuries the belief in vampires was widespread in parts of New England, particularly in Rhode Island and Eastern Connecticut. There are many documented cases of families disinterring loved ones and removing their hearts in the belief that the deceased was a vampire who was responsible for sickness and death in the family, although the term "vampire" was never actually used to describe the deceased. The deadly disease tuberculosis, or "consumption" as it was known at the time, was believed to be caused by nightly visitations on the part of a dead family member who had died of consumption themselves.

The most famous, and most recently recorded, case of suspected vampirism is that of nineteen-year-old Mercy Brown, who died in Exeter, Rhode Island in 1892. Her father, assisted by the family physician, removed her from her tomb two months after her death, cut out her heart and burned it to ashes.

        Far more than a book that contains a number of frightening true accounts and a collection of truly magnificent original art,  Real Vampires, Night Stalkers and Creatures from the Darkside expands the definition of the vampire to include parasitic entities that enter our reality from the far reaches of the multidimensional universe to possess their victims and to feed upon their life essence and their very soul.

        Real Vampires are not the undead, returning from crypt or cemetery plot to steal blood, the vital fluid of existence from the living. Although they may look like us—and when it serves their purpose they may skillfully impersonate us in order to deceive and to prey upon us—they have never been human.

        Real vampires are parasitic, shape shifting entities that feed upon the energy, the life force,  and the souls of humans.

        From whatever dimension of time and space they may have originated, real vampires may be compared to an ancient, insidious virus that first infects, then controls its host body, causing it, in turn, to possess other victims, to form secret societies, blood cults, and hideous rituals of human sacrifice.

        Regardless of the seductive aura of the vampire depicted in contemporary novels, films, and television series, none of these romantic transformations of an ancient menace to humankind portray real vampires. While the vampirism virus may infest handsome men and beautiful women, none of those infected have superhuman powers. Real vampires and those whom they possess are loathsome slashers, rippers, and murderers who do not promise immortality with their sensual “bite,” only a painful death.

        Real vampires and their human hosts can walk freely in the light of day. The rays of the rising sun do not send them scurrying back to their coffins.  Crucifixes do not cause real vampires to shrink back in fear.

        Real vampires are the spawn of ancient entities such as Lilith, the seductive fallen angel, or of other paraphysical beings—such as the Jinn, the Cacodaemons, the Raskshasas, and the Nephilim—who have traversed the boundaries of time and space to prey upon humankind.

          While this book focuses on the supernatural, the multidimensional, and the paraphysical beings who have interacted with our species since prehistoric times, we also visit the contemporary vampire community living among us today.  Leading members of the vampire community share with us the basic findings and the extensive demographics of the Vampire and Energy Workers Research Survey for 2009.  These "vampires" are not murderers, sociopaths, or supernatural beings. They are a subgroup within our society who are perhaps unique, but who are not after our blood.

     Real vampires are immortal, and when the spirit parasite that has invaded a human body has tired of that fleshly residence, it dispassionately discards its temporary dwelling and possesses another, abandoning its former host to death and decay, rather than to an existence of attractive eternal youth and everlasting sexual prowess.

        Although these entities cannot be killed, they can be driven away from their potential victims. We can resist them. We can become immune to their power. We can fight them and defeat them.

The Vampire Name Generator

The notion of vampirism has existed for millennia; cultures such as the Mesopotamians, Hebrews, Ancient Greeks, and Romans had tales of demons and spirits which are considered precursors to modern vampires. However, despite the occurrence of vampire-like creatures in these ancient civilizations, the folklore for the entity we know today as the vampire originates almost exclusively from early 18th-century southeastern Europe, when verbal traditions of many ethnic groups of the region were recorded and published. In most cases, vampires are revenants of evil beings, suicide victims, or witches, but they can also be created by a malevolent spirit possessing a corpse or by being bitten by a vampire. Belief in such legends became so pervasive that in some areas it caused mass hysteria and even public executions of people believed to be vampires

It is difficult to make a single, definitive description of the folkloric vampire, though there are several elements common to many European legends. Vampires were usually reported as bloated in appearance, and ruddy, purplish, or dark in color; these characteristics were often attributed to the recent drinking of blood. Indeed, blood was often seen seeping from the mouth and nose when one was seen in its shroud or coffin and its left eye was often open. It would be clad in the linen shroud it was buried in, and its teeth, hair, and nails may have grown somewhat, though in general fangs were not a feature.

Many elaborate rituals were used to identify a vampire. One method of finding a vampire's grave involved leading a virgin boy through a graveyard or church grounds on a virgin stallion—the horse would supposedly balk at the grave in question.Generally a black horse was required, though in Albania it should be white. Holes appearing in the earth over a grave were taken as a sign of vampirism. Corpses thought to be vampires were generally described as having a healthier appearance than expected, plump and showing little or no signs of decomposition. In some cases, when suspected graves were opened, villagers even described the corpse as having fresh blood from a victim all over its face. Evidence that a vampire was active in a given locality included death of cattle, sheep, relatives or neighbours. Folkloric vampires could also make their presence felt by engaging in minor poltergeist-like activity, such as hurling stones on roofs or moving household objects, and pressing on people in their sleep.

Featuring 30 chilling stories of real-life zombie encounters, this comprehensive and unsettling study draws upon traditions found throughout the world to dispel common depictions of zombies as lurching, flesh-eating automatons made popular by countless movies and books. This fascinating collection includes the stories of the Devil Baby of Bourbon Street, a monstrous creature complete with horns and tail that still lurks in the shadows of the Big Easy; Black Mama Courteaux and the great zombie war, involving hundreds of zombie soldiers battling for the supremacy of their queen; and the swamp child of Mama Cree, who still roams the bayous of Louisiana. In addition to the stories, a variety of zombie-related facts are explored, including ceremonies and initiations, zombies throughout history, sacred zombie and voodoo-related sites, and zombies and monsters of the Bible.
