The Gayal was a vampire creature of Indian legends. It was a spirit that was usually created due to the death of a man who did not have proper burial rites.

When he returns from the dead as a Gayal, the vampire seeks revenge on its own relatives and the sons of others.

The threat and fear of a relative returning from the grave as a Gayal, usually ensures proper burial rites are performed.
