My papa would hear rumors about aswangs in Negros Occidental. I know more of local creatures too because I live in the Philippines. 
ThestralWizard's avatar
Nice to know.  Is an aswang the same monster as a manananggal, or are they only vaguely similar
Mariposabutterfly's avatar
There are variants of aswangs, from a werebeast, a witch, a vampire, a shapeshifter or a manananggal. 
ThestralWizard's avatar
Oh, so it's more of an umbrella term, awesome!
Mariposabutterfly's avatar
Yeah, but mainly an aswang is a shapeshifter.
ThestralWizard's avatar
I see =) thanks for the information
Mariposabutterfly's avatar
No prob, you can ask me about Filipino culture.
ThestralWizard's avatar
BTW, is there anything about Mai than seems offensive or in any way, "off"? If so I should fix it right away.
