This is an awful witch of the Asturies. An old, ugly woman with many wrinkles and a single tooth, she's a sort of vampire. As soon as there is a fissure in a house where a child or a young adult sleeps (her preferred victims), the guaxa enters to swallow their blood, and she comes back until finally the person dies.
