Norway - Bjørn Morten, Gjengangar, Gronnskjegg

Bjørn Morten: Reportedly the general term used to describe a Wampir. Under research.

Gjengangar: Possibly like many of the early European lore, which integrated vampire and werewolf type creatures all together.

Gronnskjegg: Vampire like creature of Nordic folklore. From what I have seen Gronnskjegg would translate to 'ghoul', even though it is not one.



Peru - Canchus, Gierach, Pishtaco, Pumapmicuc

Canchus: The Canchus were possibly devil worshippers who sucked the blood of the young. Requires further research.

Gierach: Oddly enough Germany has a similar word too. Perhaps this is a transplanted term. Still under research.

Pishtaco: This is a vampire, which feeds off your fat first, then goes for the blood.

Pumapmicuc: Vampire under research.
