A vampire from Northern Indian folklore, the Brahmaparusha is an extremely violent vampire who takes pride in its kills. It is usually seen wearing intestines on its head and carrying a skull that it uses as a cup to drink blood from. A Brahmaparusha is created by a demon possessing the corpse of a human being. It’s also believed that a person can be reincarnated as a Brahmaparusha if they were evil in their previous life.
Brahmaparusha attacks are very violent and bloody. They bite down on their victim’s neck until blood starts to pour out and then it fills its skull cup with the blood to drink it. Once the body is drained of blood, the vampire smashes the victim’s head and eats their brains. Finally it rips out their intestines and wears them around its neck or on its head as a trophy. It will then dance around what is left of the corpse. It takes many victims to fill a Brahmaparusha.
There is no way to protect yourself against a Brahmaparusha vampire. The only thing you can do is run and hide.
