A creature from the folklore of the Southern Slavs. It is believed that this is the soul of a dead unbaptized baby.

It has a very thin and elongated spindle-shaped body with a disproportionately large head, but it can look like an animal (foreshadows the death of a pet) or a child (foreshadows the death of a person).

It can bleat a kid, cry a baby, meow, scream like a bird. Usually appears in cemeteries, along roads or right in the village. Considered a vampire. Sometimes it is believed that he attacks livestock.
