AlP-German Elf Creature

ALP-
Alp is an originated from German folklore and is supposedly an elf-like creature. It is said that these creatures are small and what they will do is climb up on the chest of a sleeping human, turn into mist and
The ALP
enter the body of that particular human through their nose, mouth or even vagina if it is a woman. They then have the ability to control the persons dreams. They can cause the victim to have nightmares and apparently the victims would wake up breathless.
An alp is typically a male creature, [while its counter-part is called a mara is to appear more feminine of the same creature].  Anyway the alp whom attacks during the night only, controlling the dreams of usually females dreams and while doing so creating quite horrible nightmares in fact. Giving the Alp the name hence 'Elf dream' or in German Alpdrucke - meaning a nightmare. These alp's well attack when the person is asleep. Then it will astride upon a sleeper's chest as she/he is sleeping It will feel like your chest will become heavier until the crushing weight wakens the terrified and breathless dreamer. The victim once awake will be unable to move under the alp's weight. This may have been an early explanation for sleep apnea and sleep
paralysis. as well as night terrors. There are know sexual attacks by the alps too.
Alp in his true form
Besides causing nightmares the alp is often associated with the vampire because this Creatures will often
drink from the nipples of men and women. The women victim is often more preferred by the male Alp because it favors the taste of the breast milk. So pregnant women must beware!
An Alp's Characteristics are best known for its shapeshifing abilities, they are quite similar to that of the wolf-shift to human or werewolf lore. It can even can change into a cat, pig, dog, snake or as small as a white butterfly. The Alp has been said that it can fly like a bird and ride a horse. The alp always wears a hat, giving it an almost comical appearance.
The hat that the Alp wares is known as the Tarnkappe. The translation is 'camouflage cap' or cap of concealment'. I think the last of the two makes more sense of these foul evil little creatures.. Of course this is only my opinion. Anyway this cap give the Alp his magick powers and the ability to turn invisible while it is worn. Like an cloak of invisibility. [I wasn't able to find a image with the creature, with a cap an cloak].
Anyway the hat is visible no mater what shape the Alp takes. Which could be almost anything!
Now if an alp has lost his hat, he will offer a great reward for its safe return, but be warned once he gets it back you could be in great danger even if you gave him the great service of finding it for him.

Human did wake-up in time!
The True Form of the Alp
The alp also possesses an 'Evil Eye' whose gaze will inflict illness and misfortune. It is said in legend if one can get close to remove or damaged  the alps eye, it can remove the malicious intent within it, but it is almost impossible to do so. There are different ways of Protection against this fouled creatures Alps' including laying a broomstick under a pillow, hang iron horseshoes from your bedpost, placing your shoes against the bed with yur toes pointing toward the doorway and lastly placing a mirror on the chest of chores where you keep your clothes. These are just a few that I found that people would use in the day of the alp. They would also use Steel and crosses too. If you are awoken by the alp and find him sitting there just about to crawl up your chest, one can address him by asking him to return in the morning to borrow something or even to have coffee with him. OK, this does sounded very strange but bare with me; they is more to this tale. Once you have awoke and seen the alp and asked him to have coffee the next morning lets just say; the alp will dash away at once, but true to his word arriving in the next morning either in his 'true' form or 'else' in the form of a human with eyebrows that meet to receive his gifts.
The Alp in digest 
Now the creature can be convinced to leave the victim alone at this time, but the alp will beg pitifully and at great lengths not to be turned away. So the key to this, is to not having to face the creature alp again. So make sure that you plug up any holes, specifically yur keyholes or any other ways of getting into your home by means of shapeshifting into a very small creature like that of a bug. If you do all this before the visitation it should keep the Alp out. Plugging them during a visitation will invariably seal it inside the room, as they can leave only through their original entrance. [ although I didn't get away on how to get ride of the alp once you have them trapped in room, but I am sure there are ways.]. A light kept constantly on during the night will also be very effective to ward off an alp too. A sentry may also be employed to wait and watch for the alp to attack the helpless sleepers, the alp may be driven away if caught by someone not under the alps influence.  I found a way to get ride of them if you trap them in a room in your room, just be very careful to not have eye connect. Alps are said to be weakened or even immobilized by shoving a fresh lemon in its mouth should it be caught resting during the day. The Alp appears all but impossible to kill and sometimes even after being turned away it may reappear years later in a worse mood.
Alps history and origins are in the mountainous regions of Germany and Austria.
The alp in many cases is considered a demon, but there have been some instances in which the alp is
a created from the spirits of recently dead relatives, more akin to a spirit or ghost. Children may become an
alp if a woman bites a horse collar to ease the pain during an extremely long and tortuous childbirth.
also a child born with a caul or hair on the palms may become a Alp.
 If a woman who becomes pregnant is frightened by an animal, the child may be born an alp. Stillborn infants are also suspected to return form the grave as Alps and will torment their family. People who have eyebrows that meet at the middle are suspected to be Alps. As with the case of werewolves too. Sometimes a normal human or animal may become an Alp during the night.
These creatures are typically unaware of their nocturnal activities and are invariably in disguise while doing so. Finding an Alp while it is not active simply requites injuring or otherwise marking it during on of its attacks, and seeking out the being with a similar mark during the day.
Now all of the above activities may or may not be true. It just depends on how much you believe in legend of the Alp Elf Creature and its power. Lots of these legends and Myths are very much true in a sense of time and that time could be the past or present it just depend on what you believe when you read these different posts that I give to you read and decide for yourselves.
I did find a bit more about the Alp that happens which says it is a spirit which can be summoned by a witch,
and other ways of summoning the demon or evil spirit out of the Alp. But in my opinion these Alp creatures that I have discovered are quite the nasty and foul creatures. And in my opinion Witches are good are good people. And I really don't see them dealing with something like this creature.  I myself don't practic the pagan  religion but I do believe in there ways of being a very peaseful and loveing group of women who are very wise when it comes to earth and herbs and so much more.
When I first started his post I didn't realize how much the alp german creature was more of an evil demon creature which i really didn't plan on doing any on my post but i got thinking they are good /Bad faires and dragons too. so i guess I have to do both to show the balance of mother Earth.
I hope that you find the post at least interesting..
Your Wendy always with love!
