An obayifo is a vampire-like mythological creature from West Africa coming from the folklore of the Ashanti.[1] It is known as asiman by the Dahomey people.[1] The obayifo was also considered a kind of witch. In Ashanti folklore, obayifo are very common and may inhabit the bodies of ordinary people.[2] They are described as having shifty eyes and being obsessed with food.[2] When travelling at night they are said to emit a phosphorescent light from their armpits and anus.[2]



Obayifo sind Vampire aus Westafrika, die in der Lage sind zu fliegen. Sie verlassen des Nachts ihre menschliche Hülle und holen sich kleine Kinder, die sie dann aussaugen und einen langsamen qualvollen Tod sterben lassen. Sie vernichten auch ganze Ernten und sorgen so für Not und Elend bei den Menschen. (Cyrne)
