The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

EMPUSA

Greek Demonness

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.
