La Diablesse / 7.5m - 2.2x .50m(La jah-bless) from the French, she-devil. Based on Caribbean folklore, the Devil Woman roams at night. Her face resembles that of a corpse, hidden under a beautiful wide-brimmed hat.
Always dressed exquisitely in a white blouse and a long petticoated skirt to hide her feet, one being a cloven hoof warning of her ominous approach. Despised by women but enchanting to men. In public will charm and seduce them into following her home. Once under her spell she disposes of her male victims by walking them off a cliff or stamping on their heads with her cloven foot. It is believed that when a woman dies during childbirth she returns as a La Diablesse.
