Ghouls are monsters of folklore who haunt graveyards consuming the flesh of freshly-buried corpses. Ghouls have also been known to anticipate a meal by consuming still-living victims who join their cursed ranks. The oldest surviving literature that mention ghouls is in the Arabian Nights which in English translation date back to the 18th century. Frankly, ghouls are neither heroic or hunkish but here they are anyway.
