Green Ogress

(GREENOH-griss)
In France, there is a type of vampiric fay called a green ogress who appears to men as a supernaturally beautiful woman. Using its feminine guiles, it lures a man into sexual intercourse, during which it drains him of his blood. Like all of her kind, the green ogress is susceptible to iron.
