Edimmu (502)

An Edimmu is a Fae spirit that has become angry from being improperly entombed or disturbed.

Character arc

When Dyson and Lauren dug up Kenzi from her grave, Lauren unknowingly broke an urn and disturbed a buried spirit. A shard of the urn fell into a pocket of her jacket and remained in it until she found it. The ghost, an Edimmu, then haunted Lauren and Kenzi. It imitated Bo's presence and tried to seduce Lauren while she slept.

Believing that it was the spirit of Bo trapped in the netherworld and trying to communicate with them, Kenzi borrowed a Ouija divination board from Trick to conjure Bo and help her return from the spirit realm. However, the ritual Kenzi performed gave the spirit a corporeal form. It followed Lauren and when it attacked her, Kenzi killed it with a gunshot.

Trivia

  • The edimmu were a type of utukku in Sumerian mythology, similar in nature to the preta of Vedic religion or the kiangshi of Chinese mythology. They were envisioned as the ghosts of those who were not buried properly. They were considered vengeful toward the living and might possess people if they did not respect certain taboos, such as the prohibition against eating ox meat. They were thought to cause disease and inspire criminal behavior in the living, but could sometimes be appeased by funeral repasts or libations. The edimmu were also thought to be completely or nearly incorporeal, "wind" spirits that sucked the life out of the susceptible and the sleeping (most commonly the young).[1]
  • The ouija, also known as a spirit board or talking board, is a flat board marked with the letters of the alphabet, the numbers 0–9, the words "yes", "no", "hello" (occasionally), and "goodbye", along with various symbols and graphics. It uses a planchette (small heart-shaped piece of wood or plastic) as a movable indicator to indicate a spirit's message by spelling it out on the board during a séance. Participants place their fingers on the planchette, and it is moved about the board to spell out words. "Ouija" has become a trademark that is often used generically to refer to any talking board. Ouija boards have been the source of inspiration for literary works, used as guidance in writing or as a form of channeling literary works. Ouija boards have been criticized in the press since their inception, having been variously described as "'vestigial remains' of primitive belief-systems" and a con to part fools from their money.[2]
