The Demon palis is inArabian lore, a desert Demon that vampirizes people by licking the soles of their feet until their Blood is drained. There is no known description of the palis. The palis waits until desert travelers are asleep and then licks their feet. To prevent attack, travelers should sleep with the soles of their feet touching the soles of another person’s feet. Salt sprinkled around will repel the Demon.
