France - Aloubi, Incubus, Melusine, Moribondo, Succubus

Aloubi: Possibly also known as Alouby. Not much available in writing, most of what I have heard is passed down folklore. Another of many sections needing continued research.

Incubus: This vampire demon is the male incarnation of the well-documented 'Succubus'. The 'Incubus' appears to be a form of energy vampire and regularly preys on women at night until they are drained of all physical and sexual energies. This can occur through intensive love-making and by tormenting the victim's dreams with terrifying nightmares. The 'Incubus' is similar in concept to the Scandinavian 'Mara' and, like Slavic and Gypsy vampire folklore; it has the ability to father children.

Melusine: Reportedly a daughter of a king who was cursed for use of magic.

Moribondo: This creature assaults cattle in particular. Moving the cattle through a circle of fire provided protection for the herd.

Succubus: The female counterpart to the 'Incubus', this creature attacks men during their sleep using similar methods.
