"My research marks it as a demonic creature of Trinidadian origin, known as a Soucouyant. One sting from a Jack Spaniard in her swarm sparks a fever, bringing with it paranoia that grows in ferocity until death overcomes."
Witnesses[src]

The Soucouyant is a demonic creature who has the ability to transform into a swarm of living Jack Spaniards, possessed of a potent sting which will kill their target in less than 10 hours.

HistoryEdit

SummonedEdit

After being summoned from Pandora's Box, a swarm of red insects emerge and takes the form of an insect woman dressed in red. Pandora gives her a target of killing authority figures. Her first target is a Judge. Judge Chrysdale enters his office and a bug flies past him and lands on the windowsill. He slaps a cup down on it, but it breaks free and stings him. More bugs swarm into the room and attack Chrysdale. After stinging multiple people, the creature returns to its hive. At the ruin, Pandora strokes the blossom forming on her tree. A pair of earrings grow on one branch, and Pandora puts them on to celebrate. The Soucouyant enters the chamber and Pandora says that she has to look her best. Later, Ichabod and Abbie go to the ruins and the Soucouyant swarms in. Abbie gets out a spray can and tells Ichabod to find the hive while she buys them some time. Pandora plucks the six blossoms from the tree. Ichabod arrives and realizes that Pandora has been spreading particular forms of terror. She thanks them for cleaning up after her, and Ichabod says that it ends. Abbie avoids the swarm as best she can, and lights the spray to set some of the wasps on fire. Ichabod says that he's seen the tree before, and catches the crossbow when he fires it. He sees the hive nearby and ducks away as Pandora advances on him. However, the tree glows and Pandora says that she must go. Ichabod runs to join Abbie and warns her that Pandora's plans are reaching fruition. He tells her where the hive is and hands her a vial of prussic acid. The swarm flies in and forms into the Soucouyant, and Ichabod shoots it. However, the crossbow passes through the monster as it reverts to its swarm form. Abbie runs into the chamber and prepares to use the acid on the hive. The Soucouyant turns solid and attacks Ichabod. It grapples with him and prepares to claw him to death... and then dissipates as Abbie pours the acid into the hive.[1]
