Strigois, Strzyga or Štrigun are spirits similar to vampires or warlocks who have led troubled lives from Romania, Croatia and other Slavic countries. They became well-known after appearing in the Witcher video game series.


Most Strigois have crimson hair, indigo eyes and two hearts. However, they normally take the form of other entities. They survive by sucking blood and normally transform into animals or spirits. It is said that strigois haunt villages during the night, when they get out of their graves to feed themselves with animals' blood. In the Romanian culture, when an animal was sick it was said that it might have been the victim of a strigoi. In Croatian culture the word Štrigon has been associated with witches and vampires, the most well known of such being Jure Grando and Baba Yaga/Baba Roga.
