Duppy                                                                       Back to Ghosts


A West Indian ghost who can be summoned by a secret ritual, the Duppy is
said to be willing to do the callers bidding.

The caller need only throw coins and rum on a grave, to causs the ghost to
come out in such a bad temper, that he will do any evil the caller asks.  Many
believe the Duffy is simply the personification of the evil in man.
