Redcaps

(pop culture)

Redcaps were malevolent spirits found in the lowlands of Scotland (now part of the United Kingdom). They haunted abandoned sites, especially places where violent deeds had been committed. Their connection to vampirism seems to have come from their carrying a cap that had been dyed red with human blood. At every opportunity the redcap would re-dye the cap in blood.
