Akhkharu

(Ack-CAH-roo)
Variations: AKAKHARU, Rapganmekhab
In the language of the ancient Sumerians, thisis the word that is used when referring to a vampiric spirit during magical ceremonies or practices. This creature, which feeds exclusively on human blood, is summoned into this plane of existence through a rather simplistic magical ceremony. As soon as the akhkharu arrives in our dimension, the creature immediately begins seeking out prey. If it can consume enough human blood, it will become human itself.
