Nora

(NOR-ah)
Variations: Nore
From Hungarian vampiric lore comes a species of vampiric creature known as a nora. Humanoid, bald, and invisible, it moves about on all fours, attacking amoral and disrespectful women, drinking blood and breast milk from them. Smearing GARLIC paste over one's breasts will offer some protection from a nora attack, but the surest way to ensure one's safety is never to become a prostitute. It has been speculated that the nora was an attempt to explain sexually transmitted diseases and other such ailments.
