So there's this demon, he's called Ankou and he's the original version of the grim reaper. He wears a wide black hat, a long black coat. His face
from the nose up is usually invisible from what I've read about him. This is for reference, I learned he had a name and that other people had seen
him a couple months ago.
I haven't ever seen him personally, and I'm not saying I'm worried. This is mainly to see if anyone else out there has had any similar
My mom always complained about nightmares. ALWAYS. I asked her what they were about and she told me that from the time she was little she had
nightmares about a "tall man with a long black coat in a black hat coming for her in the night." I always thought it was wierd, but didn't put a
lot of creedence into it.
When I was around 16 I had a girlfriend who had panic attacks a lot. One night we were out at the local lake, uh "talking", anyway at one point she
goes dead still and silent and rigid. I was like uh what? She said that we just had to go, had to. So we left. On the highway back to her house she
told me what she saw; what she always saw during her panic attacks. It was a man in a long black coat with a big black hat with a mean grimace but you
couldn't see the rest of his face. She also mentioned that she had seen dead looking people around my truck at the lake along with this guy. I
instantly made the connection between my moms dreams and her attacks. It was strange but I thought it was probably just a strange coincidence with two
people having the same image of pure fear. I kinda forgot about it for a few years (I'm 20 now). A couple months ago I was just dabbling around on
the internet with a friend and we stumbled upon a website which was essentially a fairie dictionary. I was running through it looking for the legend
of the fairy cloth from scottland and I read Ankou's definition. It hit me hard. Not scared or anything but I was just stunned to find that many many
cultures had the same type of guy running around.
The puritian's black man of the woods, the Irish Ankou, native americans, among others all share very similar stories.
Anyone had any similar experiences, does anyone give any creedence to this at all? I realize I don't have any evidence besides my word so I
understand taking all of this with a grain of salt; I would, and do, do the same.
