Namorado

Not just original, aboriginal!

Mari Wells

In West Arnhem Land in Australia the local aboriginal people have a vampire demon called Namorado in their mythology. The namorodo is a skeleton with ligaments; its fingers are long and razor sharp.

By day it’s inactive but by night it flies through the sky searching for its newest victim. It enters a house and finds a sleeping victim, and drains the person of blood. It can create more of its own kind.

Namorodo are associated with sorcery and shooting stars.
