NECURAT

(Na-coo-RAT)
Variations: Orgo?
In Romania, the word necurat translates tomean "accursed" or "dishonest." It refers collectively to all evil, vampiric creatures. It is used in place of the name of a specific vampire so that the demon does not hear its name and be drawn to the person who said it.
