The Nak'aqs are also known as the evil mestizos. These undead creatures belong to the mythical beliefs of the Quechua and Incan tribes of southern Peru in South America. The Nak'aqs hide near the roads at night and kill any passerby with a sharp knife. Once their victim is lying dead, the Nak'aqs then suck out the fat from the body. They are said to have petrifying flaming eyes and a white coloured body. The Nak'aqs alternative name Pishtaku means ‘butcher’.
