- (CALF-inn)Variations: SwamxThe Karen people of Burma fear a demonic vampire called a kephn. It is created through the use of dark or evil magic. It is described as looking like both the floating head of a wizard, dangling its stomach beneath, or as a dog-headed water demon. Both versions are always hungry for human blood and souls.Source: Conway, Demonology and Devil-lore, 4143; Spence, Encyclopædia of Occultism, 421; Summers, Vampire: His Kith and Kin, 224
