The legend of the Ch’iang Shih

CH'IANG SHIH     The Ch’iang Shih (loosely translated as “Hopping Corpse”) has been traced back trough Chinese history for centuries.  Their legends have many similarities to the Vampires from European and Western legends.  The Ch’iang Shih are a nocturnal breed that are known to have difficulties in crossing running water and can be held at bay by garlic.  Known as particularly vicious, The Chi’ang Shih would typically rip the limbs from their victims before stealing the life force from the body.

The legend of the Ch’iang Shih varies from the legends of Western and European regions in an interesting manner.  Further modes of protection from the Ch’iang Shih included the ability to deter them with salt or loud noises; thunder is said to be fatal.  Another way to avoid the creature is to hold your breath as the Ch’iang Shih is blind; it is the sound of the victims’ breathing that seals his fate!  The Ch’iang Shih have ravenous sexual urges, typically drawing them to attack females, however they could be whisked away back into their resting spot by use of a broom, then iron filings, rice or red peas would be scattered on the ground above them as to provide a barrier that is impossible for them to escape.

As the Ch’iang Shih age, much as the Western and European Vampire, they gain strength.  If a Ch’iang Shih ages to the point where his beard grows long and turns white, he will gain the power of flight, some will gain the ability to turn into a wolf.

Though the Ch’iang Shih have mortal characteristics they are physically different from the more typical Vampire.  The “Hopping Corpse” as they are also known, has difficulty walking due to rigor mortis and the pain of death.  Therefore, the Ch’iang Shih hop with eternally outstretched arms, eager to sink their jagged teeth and talons into their next victim.

One well known story found in: The Vampire: His Kith and Kin by Montegue Summers is as follows:

The wife of a teacher named Liu wakes one morning to find her husband, in bed beside her, is dead; his head is missing and the bed is soaked in his blood.  She calls out for help but when the local authorities arrive she is accused of murder and taken away to jail, where she would remain for several months.  Eventually she is exonerated as the result of one of her fellow villagers happening upon a neglected grave that lie on the hillside.  Upon his closer examination, the villager discovered that the coffin had been removed from the grave and was now on the ground beside it with the lid raised ever so slightly.

The Villager would go no closer, he hurried home to gather the community to come and see what he had found.  When the villagers arrived the lid of the coffin was taken away.  There inside was indeed that owner of the coffin, yet he had not decomposed, he appeared just as he was when he had been buried except now, generations later, he was now covered in white hair.  There between his arms rested the head of Liu.  The villagers tried to remove Liu’s head from the creatures riggored grasp, but to no avail.  One of the villagers stepped forward with a sword and removed the creatures’ arms resulting in those nearest the coffin being doused with fresh blood as it spurted from the remaining nubs.  The Ch’iang Shih’s head was then quickly removed and the corpse was set ablaze, prompting the release of Liu’s widow from the village jail.

Check out these recent reviews:

 

Kim says: “I was unable to put it down. Was very addicting. It was a new take on southern vampires. Can’t wait for the next one.”

Tkenyon said: “This book is so beautifully written that it draws you into their time and space. I couldn’t put it down. It has intrigue, passion, drama and a unique perspective on the paranormal world of the vampire in our everyday lives . It is definately an adults only book . I can’t wait for the sequel ! Don’t miss out on this one !”

Deseret Hatcher raves: “Lyn Gibson gives it to us with no holds barred in this sensual and did I say sensual erotic vampire tale. The Adrian Trilogy is destined for success. The characters are modern and believable – they use cell phones and iPads, they travel by jet and they have a true lust for flesh.”

Wanda H. had this to say: ”It was nice to get away from the real world and get away to something intriguing and sexy. I would think about it even after I had put it down. The TV and movie series are all watered down and made for teens. I liked To Be His Soulmate better than some of Anne Rice’s books.”

Susie Cambe was quoted as saying: “Lyn Gibson is a mesmerizing writer. As a writer, she successfully takes you where she wants you to journey deep within a dark world, living in the shadows of the moss-strewn Deep South. Her characters develop a strong relationship with the reader and continue from book to book in her trilogy. Gibson’s books are captivating to readers passionate about the horror genre, as well as college students and anyone brave enough to turn the pages of her books.”

The legend of the Rakshasas

Rakshasas    I have had quite an influx of followers from India as of late so  I am continuing to research Vampire lore from that region.  As a welcome, I am writing today about the handsome devil to the left of the page.  This guy is what is known as a Rakshasa.

The legend states that the Rakshasas were created from the breath of Brahma when he was asleep at the end of Satya Yuga, the age of truth when humanity is governed by Gods.  It is said that as soon as they were created, the Rakshasas were so bloodthirsty that they began to eat Brahma himself!  In a last effort of defense, Brahma shouted Rakshasa! (Sanskrit for “protect me”) and Vishnu came to his aid, banishing the Rakshasas to Earth, naming them after Brahma’s plea for help.

Documentation of their existence can be traced back to Vedic sources through hymn 87  of the tenth mandala of the Rig Veda.  This documentation is known to be one of the oldest texts in any Indo-European language. Philological and linguistic evidence indicates that the Rig Veda was composed roughly between 1700-1100 BC.

Rakshasa were most often depicted as ugly, fierce-looking and enormous creatures and with two fangs protruding down from the top of the mouth as well as sharp, claw-like fingernails. They are shown as being mean, growling like beasts and as insatiable cannibals who could smell the scent of flesh.  Some of the more ferocious ones were shown with flaming red eyes and hair, drinking blood with their palms or from a human skull (similar to vampires in later Western mythology).  Generally they could fly, vanish, and had Maya (magical powers of illusion), which enabled them to change size at will and assume the form of any creature.

In the world of the Ramayana and Mahabharata, Rakshasas were a populous race of supernatural humanoids.  There were both good and evil rakshasas, and as warriors they fought alongside the armies of both good and evil.  They were powerful warriors, expert magicians and illusionists.   As shape-changers, they could assume various physical forms, and it was not always clear whether they had a true or natural form.  As illusionists, they were capable of creating appearances which were real to those who believed in them or who failed to dispel them.  Some of the rakshasas were said to be man-eaters, and made their gleeful appearance when the slaughter on the battlefield was at its worst.  Occasionally they serve as rank-and-file soldiers in the service of one or the other warlord.

Aside from its treatment of unnamed rank-and-file Rakshasas, the epic tells the stories of certain members of the race who rose to prominence, some of them as heroes, most of them as villains.
