Hindu Mythology

The colorful deities and demons of India...

PISHACHAS

Hindu Demons

Also known as Pisacas, Pisachas, Pisakas

Indian cemetery demons with repulsive habits

These would make good pets for zombies. They feast on all the leftovers from corpses, regarding smelly rotten bits as delicacies. The smellier the better.

Mourners beware: they are not averse to having a go at living flesh. Remember, foul smells attract them. If you absolutely must visit a graveyard, at all costs avoid farting.

Pishachas not only eat flesh but can also inhabit it. If you catch a Pishacha checking your body out, it probably wants to move in. You should keep both nose and mouth covered to prevent demonic entry. Otherwise they will drive you insane. And they will devour you from the inside-out.

If you do encounter Pishachas, try clicking your fingers to scare them. If that doesn’t work, you may discover that the phrase ‘inside job’ is worse than you ever contemplated.
