Vampires we know and love #13: Lobishomen

Think vampires are all the same? Think again! Vampires come in more flavors than Baskin-Robbins ice cream. So, this special DotW feature, Vampires we know and love, spotlights different kinds of bloodsucking fiends from around the world.

Lobishomen

Despite the last syllable of their name, the lobishomen of Brazil are not men at all. A woman becomes a lobishomen by being bitten, and there must be a whole lot of them because lobishomen don’t kill, they just drink enough blood for survival. Once turned, the lobishomen will take any kind of blood they can, including children’s.

A slight side effect: lobishomen become nymphomaniacs, which is kind of awkward, since they are ugly hunchbacks with short legs and bristly hair all over their bodies. They have a yellow cast to their skin, except for their faces, which are pretty white.

Don’t try the old garlic trick on lobishomen. Use Wolf’s Bane instead, and that’ll keep the girls in their graves. For extra protection, mix Wolf’s Bane with sweet onion and put it on the doors and windows of your house.
