Blood lust and the evil deadPreamble:
‘In ancient times, a sultan of the spirits fell in love with the daughter of the Pharaoh. Through the mouth of a wise priest he asked to marry her, but the Pharaoh did not permit it. Full of rage, the spirit sultan entered thebody of his beloved, and made his home within her. Soon the Pharaoh’s daughter became very ill. Her faceturned pale and her will to live waned. For weeks she just dozed on her bed, weak and sad, in the twilight realm between life and death. Seeing his daughter suffer, the Pharaoh sent for healers, seers and sorcerers.Many wise men came to the court, some with rare elixirs, others with spells and exorcisms, but the spirit sultan was stronger than any of them. From day to day the princess became weaker, from day to day the messengersof the Pharaoh searched the country, until at long last they met an old healer at the very limits of UpperEgypt, her name was Zara. She was the daughter of a priest and a good friend of the spirits. Making great haste, the messengers brought Zara to the court. Here, Zara took the appropriate measures. First, she bathedthe obsessed princess thoroughly in smoke. Then she prayed, and asked the spirit-sultan to appear, and tospeak with her through the mouth of the princess.‘Welcome’, old Zara said to the spirit-sultan. ‘What is your wish?’ . . .he answered: ‘I came into the body of this princess as the Pharaoh has refused to let her be my wife. I like it

this way, and now, my spirit relations have seen it, they want to come and obsess all the ladies of the court. But you have come and interfered. You came and asked me what I wish. For you, Zara, only for you will I leave thebody of this princess, provided you hold a night-feast in my honour.’‘We will be glad to do so’, said Zara, ‘what sort of feast do you want?’The spirit-sultan replied: ‘set up a table for the sacrifice. Light candles for me. Slaughter animals, chant, playon drums in this style (‘wedawâ-wedeh; wâdéh wâdéh; wadaiya; ayaway wâiyéh’), and I will leave the princess.She will return to better health than before.’
The remedy is are often sacrificial gifts for the spirits, or talismanic jewellery for the patient,or simply blood.
The cult’s oral tradition records Egyptian origins. A ‘priestess’ in this tradition is called a ‘Shecha’ a wordderived from Coptic Secherou and Egyptian ‘Akhw. The word Zâr possibly comes from the Kushitic Bilinlanguage of the Nile valley south of Egypt, from ‘Gâr’ meaning ‘heaven’ and ‘god’. Most authors state that theZar are not djinns, but come from another class of spirits. . . . some of the Zar are Muslim, Jewish, Christian (thedecedents of Cain) or Pagan . . . The Zar spirits can be of either sex. . . A woman obsessed by a male spirit will be addressed and treated like a man, and a man obsessed by a female Zar will be dressed up and treated as a woman. . . Zar devotees are referred to as ‘yazâr faras’ which means ‘horse of the Zar’.
