Also known as Bhuta or Bhutini, Bhut were originally ancestral spirits who had been venerated and so protected and provided for their descendants. However, if not venerated or given proper funeral rites; or had no living people to honor them, they turned into resentful, malevolent spirits. They often kill off other people’s descendants. They may have died unexpectedly and linger near where they died. Some may become vampires and target women and children. If unable to feed off the living, they will lurk near cemeteries, feeding on corpses. They can enter a corpse and reanimate it. They are shape-shifters that can take on any form. They are usually seen in cemeteries and are most active at night.
A Bhut, if venerated on a regular basis, may become a protective guardian. They are very powerful and are coveted as spirit bodyguards. They crave milk and have been known to attack babies to suck out the mother’s milk the baby has just consumed. Make offerings of milk and treat them as you would a respected family member.
