This “fachen” guy hails from Scotland and thereabouts and is sometimes known as ‘Peg Leg Jack.’ It’s supposedly SO frightening to behold that it can cause an instant death by heart attack. It only has half a body - which, you’d think maybe “just the upper half” or something, but apparently it just means that it has only one leg and a hand which for some reason sticks out of its chest, and one eye, and a really large mouth. Despite its obvious disabilities from all of these birth defects, it is by all accounts very strong and can destroy an entire orchard with help from a chain in a single night!As for its little tuft of hair up top, even it was unfathomably strong: “it were easier to take a mountain from the root than to bend that tuft.”

This cutie is from Serbia and is not your average, run-of-the-mill corpse-raiding demon creature. This is a Psoglav and they typically live in caves and scamper around on their horse legs and sniff things with their dog heads and look around with their one menacing eye. To feed their human torso bodies, they crunch the bones of dead human beings with big metal teeth. That’s right! They have metal teeth! Wikipedia doesn’t go into detail about the “many legends” about these guys, but I imagine that they sleep in nests of gemstones and have real bad breath.

Red Caps are a horrid, murderous type of dwarf or goblin or something all over England and Scotland. They live in ruins and kill trespassers and travelers who venture too close. That’s why their hats are red! It isn’t a fashion choice. It is required. If ever the blood on the cap dries, the Red Cap itself will die. They wear heavy iron boots and wield heavy iron pikes. Even so, they are so fast that it is said to be impossible to outrun them.

What you see here is just your average flesh-eating demon of Hindu lore. Like many of us, they like darkness and kick around with ghosties and ghoulies all over India and Thailand. They can shapeshift if they feel like it, as well as become invisible at will. They feed on human energies and skin and meat and bones, I guess. They have been known to possess people which often displays as insanity. Maybe the next time one of your friends gets a little nutty, you could ask them if they’ve got a rude ol’ pishacha all up in their brains.Pishacha encourage and enjoy receiving offerings during religious festivals. But then again, who doesn’t?

Bloody Bones is a boogeyman! I grew up knowing him as “Rawhide and Bloody Bones” and he happened to live anywhere my grandfather who was watching me at the time didn’t want me to go. He made his home in the basement, in the kitchen cupboards, behind the couch in the otherwise warm and inviting living room, and so on. I was afraid.The stories originated in Great Britain where they were particularly common in Lancashire and Yorkshire, and spread to North America, where the stories were common in the Southern USA (my grandfather was from SE Kentucky). The Oxford English Dictionary cites 1550 as the earliest written appearance as “Hobgoblin, Rawhed, and Bloody-bone”.
