Owenga

(Oh-WING-ah)
Variations: Owang
In Guinea, Africa, there is a type of vampiric REVENANT that is created when a person dies of a broken heart. The owenga lies in its grave making its plans for revenge, leaving only when it has decided upon a complete plan of action. When it rises it looks like a person with a single blood-shot eye. It only attacks or harms the people necessary to fulfill its revenge. Nothing will deter it from seeing its plan through to completion unless it is captured and burned to ash in its grave.
