In Australian Aboriginal mythology (specifically: Murngin), Mokoi (lit. "evil spirit") is an evil spirit who killed sorcerers who used black magic. Also known to kidnap children at night to eat them. The Murngin believed that death was rarely caused by old age and instead it was the work of a mokoi, who would bring about some sort of disease or fatal accident.[1]
