Um Es Sibyan


Um Es Sibyan
   Arabian DEMON who, as does LILITH, preys upon newborn children. Um Es Sibyan has the body of a chicken, the face of a human, and the chest of a camel. She flies through the air at night crying, “Warh, warh warh.” The sound is a death omen to any child who hears it. Parents can ward off the demon by sounding, “Tchlok, tchlok, tchlok” until it passes by.
