"If a baby is born with teeth or a silver spoon, it shall be a monster. If it perishes, whether in its youth or old age, it shall return for its own. If you do not cut its head off and place it at its feet, if you do not line the grave with poppy seeds or torn fishing nets, the Neuntöter shall knock on the gates, climb the church tower, and summon its kin."
Pomeranian vampires differed from those known from the books of Bram Stoker, Anna Rice, or from Hollywood movies. These wraiths were part of the Central and Eastern European ideas of these beings. According to local legends, those vampires were never from high births and did not reside in gloomy castles or among ruins, which were never lacking on the Pomeranian land. In Pomerania, the villagers who turned into Neuntöters were often those who were the victims of the plague. Often a vampire was a prematurely dead child. Another thing that distinguished Pomeranian vampires was that they did not necessarily have to use their fangs. They were supposed to hunt their families, kill them one by one (until they kill the nine as in the legend's title), bring the beast, or attack the wanderers, who venture outside the safe houses at night.
The “Elder Terrors” collection by Krzysztof Wroński is, in brief, Pomeranian fears. The ones that have been told about one hundred and fifty years ago, and which intentions were to give people goosebumps. These are often forgotten or little-known legends and stories about witches, wild hunts, giants, ghosts, and demons, coming mainly from the area between Lębork and Koszalin, collected for over a century among the oldest inhabitants of the local area.
