The Churel is a creature with origins in Hindu mythology, legend and folklore.
The churel is the vampiric reanimated spirit of a ritually impure woman. Her breasts sag low, her stomach bulges, and her pale skin sticks tight to her bones. The churel's mouth is full of boar-like fangs and a long black tongue. Most strikingly, her feet point backwards. A churel can disguise itself as a younger woman to attract more victims.
