Slavic Vampyres

Slavic Vampyres
The first and prized predator was the werewolf where it was widely believed that a man could transform into a wolf and back again.This could be done at will even after death their spirits were said to be able to transform.This myth of being blood thirsty evolved into the vampyre.Werewolfs who died came back as vampyres after death.He was originally an evil spirit who crept into rooms at night to drink from the living sitting on the sleeping suffocating them.This myth reminds me of the incubus/succubus which I always said was a vampyric spirit.The slavics spread much of their myths corrupting surrounding areas to these beliefs as well.
How do they deal with the “mora”?Effigies are burnt representing the vampyres.Some are buried at the cross roads.Some are chained to their graves with garlands of roses.Roses have a long history with vampyres I am going to be posting on shortly.Some places cut the heads off and place it between the legs of the mora.Russia stakes them in the heart.Poland buries the head smothered in poppies.Slavic vampyres are quite different then the myths we usually hear.Werewolf and incubus beginnings.Perhaps these are all forms of the same spirit that has seperated and became independent much like servitors can be yet they all are connected.What do you think of the slavic vampyres?
