The Chordewa is a vampire creature of Oraon, a tribe of Bengal. Thie Chordewa is a witch that can turn her soul into a black vampire cat. When in the form of cat, the Chordewa snuck into the homes of sick or dying people, eat all their food, and lick their lips. Once the vampire cat licked the person’s lips, the person would die shortly after.
The vampire cat could be identified by its weird meow. It was very difficult to catch a Chordewa, but once caught, the witch would slip into a coma and would stay in a coma until the cat was freed. When the cat was freed, the witch would return to the body.
Any harm done to the cat would appear on the witch’s body.
