The Japanese have a strong interest in vampires, and as a result they have developed some interesting variations on the creature. Once such creature is known as the nikusui.
The nikusui appears as an ordinary looking young woman. She is generally reclusive and shy, often going unnoticed. However, when she grows hungry, she becomes a vicious hunter, although always maintaining her appearance as a demure young lady.
When she has tapped a victim, the nikusui feasts on that poor soul’s flesh, literally sucking it off and leaving the remainder of the corpse to rot. Unlike traditional vampires who feast on blood or ghouls who feast on meat, the nikusui subsists on the skin itself. Imagine the poor victim whose is skinned alive and then left to die a painful death.
To destroy a nikusui, a person must gather the bones of one of the creature’s victims. The person must then identify the creature and lure it to an isolated place. As the creature prepares to attack, the person then must show it the bones of the previous victim. This act will turn the nikusui into dust.
