    A shtriga (Latin: strix, Italian: strega; compare also Romanian: strigă and Polish: strzyga) is a vampiric witch in traditional Albanian folklore that sucks the blood of infants at night while they sleep, and then turns into a flying insect (traditionally a moth, fly or bee). Only the shtriga herself could cure those she had drained. The shtriga is often pictured as a woman with a hateful stare (sometimes wearing a cape) and a horribly disfigured face. The male noun for shtriga is shtrigu or shtrigan.



    A shtriga was featured in the Supernatural episode, "Something Wicked" by hiding itself as a male doctor in a children's ward at a hospital where children have suddenly fallen comatose and where it can continue to feed.

    A shtriga was featured in the Lost Girl episode "Follow the Yellow Trick Road." Bo's friends search for the creature after figuring out that the shtriga had bitten Bo in its moth form, leaving her comatose and dying as it feeds on her fears.

    Geralt of Rivia fought a shtriga in the Witcher novel 'The Last Wish' by Andrzej Sapkowski. The scene also takes place in the Witcher games.

    The Shtriga appears in the Legends of Tomorrow episode "Wet Hot American Bummer." This version attacks the children at a summer camp and poses as a camp counselor.

    Nice, but by that map, "Guaranis" should be among "Argentinean Myths" instead of "Amazonian"

    Since when Armenian Mythology is a subdivision of Persian Mythology? I thought it was closer to Assyrian or Greek than Iranian ones, maybe it has to with Zoroastrianism influences on Armenian mythology...
    In the Hellenistic age (3rd to 1st centuries BC), ancient Armenian deities identified with the ancient Greek deities: Aramazd with Zeus, Anahit with Artemis, Vahagn with Hercules, Astghik with Aphrodite, Nane with Athena, Mihr with Hephaestus, Tir with Apollo.
