Alp

An alp is in German lore, a vampiric, shape-shifting spirit associated with the nightmare, bogeyman, and Incubus. Alps can be Demons or REVENANTS. Children are at risk of becoming alps if their mothers use horse collars to ease the difficulties of childbirth. Alps can manifest as a butterfly vampire released by the breath of the horerczy Demon, which sucks the life breath out of its victims. They also appear as cats, pigs, birds, and lecherous dogs. Even in animal form, the alp likes to wear a magical hat, which confers upon it invisibility and supernatural power. The alp causes unpleasant dreams of both women and men, and also sexually molests both sexes. Oddly, it does not force itself on its victims, but enters through the victim’s mouth as a mist or a snake. It also drinks Blood through the nipples of both men and women, and consumes the milk of women and cows. The alp assaults people with the Evil Eye. To protect against an alp attack, women should sleep with their shoes at the side of the bed and pointing toward the door.

An alp is in German lore, a vampiric, shape-shifting spirit associated with nightmare Demons, the Bogey, and the sexual predator Demons, the Succubus and Incubus. The alp can be either a Demon or a malevolent ghost of a dead person. In folklore, children are doomed to become alps if their mothers use horse collars to ease childbirth. The alp can assume different forms, from seductive humans to animals, such as cats, pigs, birds, and lecherous dogs. It may be disguised as a butterfly released by the breath of the horerczy, another vampiric Demon. Regardless of its form, the alp likes to wear a magical hat, which confers upon it invisibility and supernatural power, including the Evil Eye.

The alp has an odd way of sexually molesting men and women: It enters through the victim’s mouth as a mist or a Serpent. It drinks Blood through the nipples of both men and women and consumes the milk of women and cows. It sucks the life breath from victims. Folklore holds that women can prevent the alp from bothering them at night by sleeping with their shoes at the side of the bed and pointing toward the door.
