Характерные признаки

A creature from Mexican folklore. Presumably it appeared as a retelling of the ancient Greek myth of Medea (according to legend, she drowned her own children in order to take revenge on her husband, after which she committed suicide). This restless spirit wanders the earth, exclaiming "Ay, mis hijos!" ("Oh, my children!").

Mexican mothers scare their children with this ghost:

"If you walk after sunset by the river, La Llorona will take you and drown you!".
