A small woman from the mythologies of Malaysia. She was 1 inch tall and helped Witches cast spells and create potions. In this sense she was a type of familiar. To attract and capture a Polong it was said to leave a bottle of blood outside. The Polong would pick up the scent of blood and drink from the bottle, falling inside of it. The Polong would team up with a house cricket creature known as Pelesit to kill the victims of a witch. The Pelesit would enter into the soul of the victim and control them, making it an easy target for the Polong to dispatch it.
