South American - A blood-sucking demon appearing as a bat by night, a woman by day. Such a being can be frustrated by placing a broom across the doorway or by scattering seeds or grain on the floor. In the latter case, the azeman feels compelled to collect and cart away every single grain. If she cannot finish the job before daylight returns, she leaves empty-handed or is perhaps caught in the act of counting the grains and can be killed. In some references, known as azeman.
