Hungarian mythology & folklore ‣ lidérc
The lidérc (also known as lüdérc, lúdvérc, lederc, lidroc, lidröc, inglice) is born when its owner hatches a black chicken’s egg by holding it under their armpit. It’s a familiar spirit which makes its owner rich overnight and may grant other wishes. In exchange for its services, it takes on whatever human shape their owner desires at night, but instead of having sex, it sucks the owner’s blood and sits on their chest in their sleep, causing nightmares (lidérces álom.) Albeit useful, the lidérc is nonetheless considered a malicious creature.
It can also appear in the form of fire, hence the Hungarian term ‘lidérc light’ for will-o’-the-wisp.
