Etymology Edit


Depiction of a Chonchón (from A Book of Creatures blog)

Chon Chon is one of many alternative spellings of Chonchón - a vampire-like demon from South American Araucanian myth.

There are said to resemble oversized human heads, with bird-like features, but flying with their oversized ears, which flap like wings.

In some tales they are the heads of sorcerers detatching themselves from their bodies at night to feed upon blood, or spread malignance and mischief.

They could be conteracted by finding the headless body and either covering it in salt, or turning the body onto its stomach, where at daybreak, the Chonchón woukd be unable to reattach itself, and eventually wither and die.
