Background on the Queen of the Night Hags

            The Night Hag is an ancient demon, that has raised many minions to follow her. The Night Hags feed on sleeping humans drawing out their life-force, The human will survive as they can't take enough from them in one visit, though frequent visits or if The Night Hag attacks can be fatal. These attacks are often put down to sleep paralysis.

            Sleep paralysis is often described as being held down by an invisible force and can be extremely scary to the person being held in this confinement state. This sleeping disorder is most often associated with demonic or malevolent activity because the disorder 'feels' like someone is holding or pinning them down, thus preventing them from being able to move or to scream for help. According to Sleep Disorder Doctors, this disorder is common.

            The reports describing this very event with the person suggesting the event was demonic in nature. They describe being held down, attacked or choked. In every case the 'victim' has not consulted a doctor about a sleep disorder, but they have contacted a priest or minister for an exorcism. It appears that their religious views color their vision of reality. Often this irrational fear is paramount to the fear held by the people during the Middle Ages and during the Salem Witch Trials, where some of the Night Hags were burned in their human forms. The people did not understand so they condemned and destroyed what they did not understand. However, once this disorder is recognized, the demons depart and we understand the nature of the disorder. We all have nightmares at one time or another, yet we do not claim our nightmares were real demons attacking us. We understand that nightmares are fragments from our subconscious mind leaking into the conscious mind and that they generally can be symbolic, not actual.

           Sleep paralysis can be attributed in most instance to something called a "Night Hag," or a waking dream. Most people will suffer from at least one incident in their lives. During deep sleep the body dreams. It is a natural way for the mind to replenish itself from the rigors of constant activity. Parts of the mind shut down and allow the cells to rest. Other parts of the mind continue to function and it is at these times we dream. Sometimes the dreams are pleasant memories, fantastic visions and dreamscapes. Sometimes they are nightmares, terrors or the "Night Hag."

            During dreaming the mind shuts down the systems that allow the body to move. This is a function that protects a person from harming themselves while they dream. When this defense system fails various sleep disorders become apparent. Sleep walking is a very common disorder. Some people will repeatedly beat their heads or other body parts against walls or the floor. Involuntary movements are common sleep disorders.

            During an attack by a Night Hag they activate the system that paralyzes your body. However, for reasons not yet understood a person can awaken and be absolutely alert to their surroundings. This inability to move can be very frightening and since the person is aware of being awake most will tend to attribute this to some demonic or supernatural phenomena. The person is actually still dreaming and is in the middle of one of the most terrifying nightmares they will ever have. People have reported footsteps in the hallway and an impending sense of doom. Figures at the foot of the bed who touch and grab at them. Some have speculated that "Night Hags" are the origin of alien abduction phenomena.

            It is worth noting that people who have experienced "Night Hags" are adamant in their belief that what they experienced was real and not just a dream. Who is to say unless you experience it yourself.

 

Quote: “You didn't think it was going to be that easy did you? Silly rabbit.”

Roleplaying the Queen of the Night Hags

Have you ever been asleep and suddenly woken only to be paralyzed, seen a dark evil shadow looming over your bed, felt someone sitting on your chest or body holding you down trying to choke you, or perhaps heard strange noises and felt an eerie feeling of evil descending upon you? Chances are you are more than likely suffered a Night Hag attack.
