Strigoi-625x450
The Strigoi are found in Romanian mythology and are more gruesome than Vampires.

In Romanian mythologystrigoi ( are the troubled souls of the dead rising from the grave. Some strigoi can be living people with certain magical properties. Some of the properties of the strigoi include: the ability to transform into an animalinvisibility, and the propensity to drain the vitality of victims via blood loss. Strigoi are also known as immortal vampires.


OriginEdit

According to Adrian Cremene, strigoi date back to the Dacians. The strigoi are creatures of Dacian mythology, evil spirits, the spirits of the dead whose actions made them unworthy of entering the kingdom of Zalmoxis. As these stories were transmitted only by oral tradition, legend has lost its original substance, and Romanians have transformed strigoi into bloodthirsty creatures.Edit
