Hahn Saburo

(HANSA-burro)
Variations: Hanh Saburo, Hantu Saburo
A vampiric spirit from India, the hahn saburo is normally invisible, unless it is on the hunt; then, it resembles a ball of light. Much like a
CORPSE CANDLE, it lures travelers into the forest, but the hahn saburo does so by making strange noises. If the lure of noises fails, the hahn saburo will then employ the use of its hunting dogs and drive its prey deep into the woods. Once the victim is driven far enough away from any type of help, the vampire attacks, draining him of his blood. The rest of the body is left for the dogs to devour.
