Lajabless is said to be the bride of the devil. According to the folklore of Trinidad and Tobago, this demon appears to her male victims as a beautiful young woman who is lost on the road. Her long dress hides the fact that she has one human foot and one cow’s hoof. She casts spells on her victims to lead them into the forest, then disappears. The man, confused, lost and scared, runs around the forest until he falls into a ravine or river to his death.
