South America - Asema, Lobisomen

Asema (possibly also known as Aseman or Azeman): An old man or woman who lived in the community and took off their skin and became a vampire at night, flying through the air as a ball of blue light and drinking peoples blood, sometimes till they died. It seems probable that this creature is similar to that of Africa, Surinam.

Lobisomen: The Lobisomen (mainly found in Brazil) were small in stature, stumpy and hunch-backed, resembling a monkey, but with a yellow face, bloodless lips, black teeth, bushy beard and plush-covered feet. Special Activities: makes its victims (all women) into nymphomaniacs. To rid yourself of it, let it get drunk on blood in order to catch it more easily, then crucify it on a tree while stabbing it. Lobishomen is a commonly used erroneous spelling.
