Strigoiul Muronul

(STREE-goy-ee-el Moo-ron-OOL)
The strigoiul muronul of Romania sounds as ifthe MURONI and the strigoiul (the male counter-part of the STRIGOIU) mythologies were combined. When one considers how regional the vampire species of Romania can be, it is entirely possible that this vampire came from a region located between that of the other two.
A strigoiul muronul is created when a child is born out of wedlock to parents who were each born out of wedlock. Always born a redheaded boy, this child will become a vampiric REVENANT when he eventually dies. The only way to destroy this vampire is to burn its body to ashes or drive a nail through its heart.
