Amine

An algul (arabian ghoul) whose story was told in the Thousand and One Nights. According to the tale, a young man, Sidi Numan, weds a beautiful maiden, Amine, who eats virtually nothing but a bowl of rice, which she takes grain by grain with a knife, along with small crumbs of bread. Suspicious, Sidi learns that Anime leaves the house each night.

Following her one evening, he discovers her feasting on a corpse with a fellow ghoul. Confronting her the next night at dinner, he is turned into a dog by her spell. Restored eventually by a woman learned in white magic, Sidi receives a potion that transforms Anime into a horse. The ghoul is then led to the stables.
