Le Grand Bissetere

(LAGRANDBIS-eat-er)
In France, there is a vampiric creature called the le grand bissetere ("the great bissetere"). It makes a sound like a screech owl just before it attacks its prey—anyone who happens to be in its vicinity. It lives in wooded areas and walks the roads near woodland pools. Anyone who is anywhere near it is automatically drained of his life-energy and will die unless he can get far enough away from it quickly (see ENERGY VAMPIRE).
