Ghoul



A Demon of Islamic lore which is said to consume the flesh of both the dead and the living. Ghouls are said to live in graveyards, ruins and other desolate locations and come out at night to feast. They are most commonly described as being human in form, rising from the dead to prey on the living to satiate their unholy apetites.

Ghouls in one form or another have been featured in movies, books and video games for years. They are usually portrayed as demonic creatures of many forms including humanoid zombie-like figures and small gangled creatures with no arms.
