La Diablesse


La Diablesse which is literally translated as the devil woman is a succubus in the legends of Trinidad and Tobago.  It usually appears like a beautiful woman but can easily be distinguished due to her fashion sense.  She always wears a long dress and a big hat with veil.  She wears a long dress to hide hear hooves and a hat to conceal her true identity of an old hag.  It is said that when she made a move, you can hear the sound of a rattling chain.

La Diablesse would often approach her victims in a peculiar way, like appearing out of the tree during the night while her victim is travelling.  He may also show in a crowd and lure her target into following her.  One can easily distinguish a La Diablesse in a party when she became a source of envy from other women who are in the crowd.  She will seduce a man and follow her to the deep forest where she planned on killing him.  She will cast a hex on her victim and he will not find his way home.  She will then trick her of walking into the cliff or cause her to drown in a river.

She is known to possess the ability to shape shift in a beautiful woman.  Her powers make her alluring to men and can also be used to control the mind of her prey. She also has the ability to glide on the ground.


Someone can tell if a La Diablese is nearby by her scent.  According to the legends her smell is bordering on the scent of perfume and a decaying flesh. If a man believes that he met a la Diablese, the only way to counter her power is to strip naked and wear the opposite side of his clothes.  If someone managed to get close to a La Diablese, snatching her enchanted bag will reveal her true form.
