Ghosts, Ghouls and Demons: Nasnas

Ghosts, Ghouls and Demons

Origin: Arabian mythology

Description: Literally, half a human body.

The Nasnas is believed to be the offspring of a ‘Shiqq’ and a human. A ‘Shiqq’ is a lower form of jinn (demon spirit), which is a half creature that is monstrous in appearance. Hence, this cross-breeding resulted in the creation of a half human body.

The Nasnas is quite agile on its one leg. It uses its tail to assist with balance in its movement. Sometimes the Nasnas appeared with a single bat like wing. More commonly he would show himself as a decrepit old man who would seek the assistance of willing ‘prey’ to help carry him over water passings. Nasnas would then change form and drown his victims. He is also known to beat a human to death with his one hand.

The Nasnas never speak, since they are missing half their vocal cords. Nasnas are however capable of uttering a strange, high-pitched, hooting noise, which can be terrifying to hear. Depending on the volume and tone of the hooting, one can discern the Nasnas’s current emotional state.
