Stigoi

(STEE-gway)
A vampiric REVENANT from Romania, a stigoi is created when a person's soul returns to its body and animates it. Twice a day, at the noon hour and the midnight hour, it rises from its grave in an attempt to sate its insatiable appetite, seeking out humans to drain of their blood. The rest of the time the stigoi lies in its grave, chewing on its burial shroud; its COFFIN is filled with the blood of its victims.
