Variation: Stryz, Vieszcy, Vieszy, Vjescey, Vjiesce
This Russian vampiric revenant is mark at birth with a caul, teeth, or as the child of a witch and a werewolf.
In the form of a red-faced vampire the Viesczy seeks out its family or cattle to feed upon between noon and midnight. It bites a hole in the chest, just over the heart, using a barb on the bottom of its tongue.
It can be prevented from rising by throwing a handful of poppy or carrot seeds into the grave. It must be burned to ash to destroy.
GURPS Blood Types has "Viesczy, Vjiesce, (Slavic; Russia, Poland)" and no other information.
