Nagasjatingarong

(NA-GA-stay-sum-grun)
In Indonesia there is a vampiric spirit that preys on men known as a nagasjatingarong ("vampire"). The spirit possesses the body of a beautiful woman and uses her to seduce and then attack a man, biting him and drinking his blood. The only physical sign of attack is that the victim will develop ANEMIA. As recently as 1975 there was a report of a shaman who discovered a 25-year-old woman who was allegedly possessed by a nagasjatingarong. He asserted that she had already been married five times and each of her husbands had died of anemia within the first month of marriage.
