Dearg-due


A female demon that seduces men and then drains them of their blood. She was known throughout the country for her beauty and she fell in love with a local peasant, which was unacceptable to her father. Her father forced her into an arranged marriage with a rich man who treated her terribly, and eventually she committed suicide. She was buried near Strongbow’s Tree in Waterford, and one night, she rose from her grave to seek revenge on her father and husband, sucking their blood until they dropped dead.

Now known as Dearg-due “blood sucker”, she rises once a year, using her beauty to lure men to their deaths. There is one way to defeat Dearg-due. You can prevent the undead from rising from the grave, by simply building a pile of stones over her grave. It won’t kill her, but at least you’ll hold her off until next year!
