The incubus is the ghost of a handsome man who has his way with sleeping women. Sometimes this demon lover succeeds in impregnating sleeping women, who then give birth to deformed creatures like elves, trolls, and gnomes. Many medieval women hung garlic or herbs such as St. John’s Wort around their beds to protect them from the advances of the incubus.
