According to the old believes, Dark is an evil spirit, night, demonic creature seen on roads and paths, known to come in backyards, also. It looks like a grownup man with a big hat, and it leaves bruises on its victims. Dark attacks women more than men. When a woman goes to the well or a barn during the night, she can step on Dark and then gets a fever, and can even die unless a local healing woman helps her with magic. Dark can even bite women, and then they get big black bruises that disappear after few weeks. It can also slap people, and then people lose consciousness or become black.
