Disguised during the day, she roams among us as a young and beautiful woman. When the sun sets, her head separates from her body, dragging her organs along, and she floats around in search of anything to eat, may it be trash, excrements, rancid food. She is cursed to be eternally hungry, and she will eventually wither away and die. Her head has to return to her body before sunrise, or she will be burned.
