EMPUSA
Also known as EMPOUSA, EMPOUSAI, MORMO, MORMOLYKEIA, LAMIA

Grim ghostly vampire daughters of [HECATE].

They go in for fleshly delights, especially as a culinary treat. Although always willing and able any night, men should avoid having sex with them, as they can't resist sucking a certain amount of blood. Every last drop, in fact.

If you find one climbing through your bedroom window, the best thing to do is insult her. She's especially sensitive about her feet which are made of bronze. "Clompy Bumpy Clumpy!" is a big turn-off and she will flee in tears.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Empusa graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Empusa movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Empusa statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Empusa. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
