  • A Dybbuk is a form of malevolent spirit originating in Jewish mythology.
  • In Jewish folklore, a dybbuk is a malicious possessing spirit, believed to be the dislocated soul of a dead person. Dybbuks are said to have escaped from Gehenna (a Hebrew term loosely analogous to the concept of hell) or to have been turned away from Gehenna for serious transgressions, such as suicide, for which the soul is denied entry. The word "dybbuk" is derived from the Hebrew דיבוק, meaning "attachment"; the dybbuk attaches itself to the body of a living person and inhabits the flesh. According to belief, a soul that has been unable to fulfill its function during its lifetime is given another opportunity to do so in dybbuk form. It supposedly leaves the host body once it has accomplished its goal, sometimes after being helped.

abstract
  • El pasado del Dybbuk no es realmente mítico, es decir, no pertenece a un pasado remoto, sino que surje como una representación simbólica incorporada por los místicos judíos del siglo VIII d.C. Recordemos que la práctica del misticismo estaba tajantemente prohibida por aquel pueblo, celo que tenía por argumento la idea de que el misticismo, en cualquiera de sus formas, debilitaba la fe. Ahora bien, en el siglo XII el misticismo ya era una parte ampliamente aceptada de la Kabbalah, y para el siglo XVI, una porción integral de ésta, así como algunas de las raras criaturas que habitan en sus páginas, o rollos, para ser más precisos. La palabra hebrea Dybbuk nos revela algo de su naturaleza. Significa algo así como "adherirse", "aferrarse". En cierta forma podemos imaginarlo como un vampiro energético, a veces conocido como vampiro psíquico o vampiro emocional; es decir, una criatura generada a partir de la energía mental de alguien, desde luego, negativa; ya sea a través de un hechizo o ritual, o bien a causa de alguien con una gran capacidad para odiar espontáneamente. Algo de esto menciona Dion Fortune en su obra "Autodefensa psíquica" (Psychic Self Defence), y puntualmente en su ensayo "Contactos no humanos en el plano astral". Otras fuentes que mencionan al Dybbuk pueden hallarse en las obras de H.P. Blavatski y Annie Besant. La tradición hebrea sostiene que los Dybbuk son, de hecho, los hijos perdidos de Lilith, la madre de los vampiros; es decir, los antiguos lilim: espíritus errantes e incorpóreos que han logrado escapar de los inexpugnables muros del Gehena y el Sheol. Antiguamente se creía que los espíritus de los suicidas solían buscar una puerta de entrada para regresar al mundo; y para ello realizaban oscuros pactos con los Dybbuk. En cierta forma, el Dybbuk es un demonio que no está para nada conforme con su situación. Su único deseo es regresar al mundo de los vivos, y para ello no ahorra esfuerzos de ninguna clase; y hasta intenta desalojar el alma de los embriones para encarnarse en un vientre más o menos acorde a su malicia innata. Por eso el Dybbuk era particularmente temido por las mujeres embarazadas, una tradición que fue recogida en la película de terror de 2009 "La profecía del no-nacido" (The Unborn). Si retrocedemos hacia siglo VIII, los místicos de aquel entonces sostenían que el Dybbuk puede ser tanto un demonio como alguien que ha muerto pero que intenta eludir o aplazar el juicio de su alma, en cuyo caso se extravía nuevamente hacia el mundo de las formas: desnudo, solo y perdido, hasta que encuentra la forma de interactuar con algún incauto y a partir de allí alimentarse de su energía vital hasta que finalmente termina poseyéndolo. La forma más aterrorizadora de posesión demoníaca es justamente la que sugiere su nombre. El Dybbuk se "adhiere" a su presa como un parásito, debilitando la voluntad pero permitiendo cierta autonomía o máscara de normalidad, y así demorar la intervención de un exorcista. El Dybbuk es siempre representado más o menos de la misma forma. Se habla de una criatura con patas de cabra, hirsuta, fétida, con cierta similitud con la fisionomía humana. Para moverse en el mundo sensorial el Dybbuk necesita introducirse en un cuerpo humano, es decir, poseerlo. Algunos especialistas en la tradición hebrea, por ejemplo, Robert Graves y Raphael Patai en su colosal obra "Los mitos hebreos" (Hebrew Myths), sostienen que cuando alguien impuro aspira los vapores del incienso quizás esté absorbiendo la material sutil del Dybbuk. No obstante, otras leyendas aseguran que el Dybbuk se gana su ingreso al mundo mediante astucias y engaños; presencias que la gente puede tomar por angélicas y fenómenos paranormales que, a simple vista, simulan ser benéficos, como dulces voces que murmuran el futuro; hasta que finalmente logra desgastar la voluntad de su presa y penetrar en su cuerpo. Una vez que el Dybbuk consigue acceso a la mente, comenzará a manifestarse a través de violentos cambios de personalidad, erupciones emocionales, comportamientos erráticos, inarticulados, propios de alguien que ha vivido una larga jornada de privaciones, comiendo y bebiendo hasta el hartazgo. Vale aclarar que estos excesos tienen como propósito desequilibrar aún más las energías del huésped, haciendo que el hospedaje del Dybbuk sea mucho más sencillo. Algunos sostienen que incluso el Dybbuk se vale de su anfitrión para vampirizar a otras personas. Ya en la etapa final de la posesión, el Dybbuk obligará a su presa a devorar azúcar y dulces de todo tipo. Sus presas a menudo caen bajo una depresión severa, que los recluye irremediablemente. Estos casos -narra la leyenda- suelen manifestar esputos y vómitos de una sustancia blancuzca notablemente espesa y hedionda. En este punto comienzan a manifestarse los primeros síntomas de locura. Cuando el cuerpo y la mente de su presa han sido prácticamente anulados, la personalidad del Dybbuk se manifiesta abiertamente. Sin embargo, la estadía del Dybbuk dentro de un cuerpo humano no es perpetua. Solo puede manipular los mecanismos corporales durante un tiempo bastante corto, que va desde una semana hasta unos pocos meses. La persona poseída por este demonio puede salvarse si se somete al saber y las prácticas de algún rabí especializado en exorcismos. Si la persona fue exorcizada eficazmente, deberá llevar de por vida un amuleto de cera o acero, oportunamente bendecido, para evitar el reingreso del Dybbuk; que cuando no accede a las delicias del cuerpo suele vivir en cuevas abandonadas y en esos pequeños remolinos de viento que juegan con las hojas secas.

  • A Dybbuk is a form of malevolent spirit originating in Jewish mythology.
  • Although earlier Jewish writers wrote about demonic possession, saying that those who fell victim to it were usually Jews who questioned their religion or who did not follow rituals correctly, no accounts of possession by ghostly dybbuks exist before the 16th century. The 1914 Yiddish play The Dybbuk; or Between Two Worlds (Der Dibuk oder Tsvishin Tsvey Veltn) by the Russian playwright Shlyome Zanvl Rappaport, known as S. Ansky, introduced the idea to a wider audience. The play tells the story of a scholar named Hannan who falls in love with a young woman named Leah'le, feeling that she is predestined to be his bride. Hannan dies when he hears that Leah'le is to marry somebody else. His spirit takes possession of Leah'le before her wedding. The dybbuk fulfils its purpose when it reveals that Leah'le's father had promised Hannan's father that their children would marry, meaning that Leah'le's father broke his word. At the end of the play, the ghost of Hannan appears to Leah'le and she chooses to stay with him, presumably following him in death. A modern addition to the dybbuk myth is the idea that a dybbuk can be trapped inside a wooden box, known as a dybbuk box, although the dybbuk may be able to escape from the box again and misfortune is likely to befall anybody who owns such a box. A dybbuk is not to be confused with an ibbur, the spirit of a righteous dead person, which, according to Jewish folklore, can temporarily possess a living person at the living person's request.
  • In Jewish folklore, a dybbuk is a malicious possessing spirit, believed to be the dislocated soul of a dead person. Dybbuks are said to have escaped from Gehenna (a Hebrew term loosely analogous to the concept of hell) or to have been turned away from Gehenna for serious transgressions, such as suicide, for which the soul is denied entry. The word "dybbuk" is derived from the Hebrew דיבוק, meaning "attachment"; the dybbuk attaches itself to the body of a living person and inhabits the flesh. According to belief, a soul that has been unable to fulfill its function during its lifetime is given another opportunity to do so in dybbuk form. It supposedly leaves the host body once it has accomplished its goal, sometimes after being helped.

  • A Dybbuk is a wraith of Jewish ancestry who was killed during Adolf Hitler's Holocaust. While nominally Stygian, Dybbuk generally have no association with the dead of Europe, instead living in their own autonomous Necropoli called the Dark Kingdom of Wire. While wraiths, the Dybbuk are a separate culture, driven by the uniquely violent circumstances of their deaths and the environments they live in (most of the death camps are home to large nihils, with Auschwitz being a gaping maw of Oblivion). As a result, Dybbuk generally have inordinately high Angst and tend to be a bit more fuzzy on the distinction between a wraith and a Spectre.

A Dybull was the spirit of a dead sinner who, instead of continuing on to the afterlife, decided to hide out by inhabiting the body of a living person, where they would either live quietly or, more frequently, pester and torture the victim. According to folklore the victim had to have committed some sort of sin in order for the Dybbuk to get inside, thus it could not harm the "righteous" - if one was possessed by a Dybbuk it could be exorcised by a properly trained rabbi.

  • A Dybbuk is a fan-used term derived from a reference by Dimo when describing the situation with Agatha. It is called an [ Essentia] [[Chronology - Volume #|✣ ]] by Gil. In myth the dybbuk is a disembodied entity that attempts to transfer its personality,usually forcibly, into another's body without removing the resident mentality and psyche. It will hijack the hosts body at will if not suppressed by some means. Dimo mentions this particular phenomenon, that The Other is [ "...like a...a dybbuk, I tink."] [[Chronology - Volume #|✣ ]], while meeting with the Jägergenerals. The term dybbuk is from Judaism; it is a partial spirit or personality imposed on a victim for some reason, usually a poorly kept ward on the outer doors of one's domicile, thus allowing the dybbuk access to one's home and one's person. In the Girl Genius Universe this phenomenon is physically real, and is accomplished by using highly developed machinery for transferring a consciousness from one body to another. We do not know if this machine is the accomplishment of Lucrezia Mongfish alone, or whether The Other inspired her. It could be either or both. This creates a pocket in the victim's mind wherein the dybbuk resides and slides out to take over the victim's body whenever it is strongly motivated by some external stimulus--temptation usually. This applies to the entities seen in the comics they are copies of the template personalities carrying traits, memories, and skills, that come to prominence whenever the opportunity presents itself. This is usually from the one case we have seen during the initial overlay, but the host personality can force itself to the surface and the dybbuk can be suppressed with the right devices. The subject will be [ reflective] [[Chronology - Volume #|✣ ]] of the dybbuk's [ personality] [[Chronology - Volume #|✣ ]] whenever it is in control. There are three known dybbuks so far in this story. One is Lucrezia-in-Agatha. The other is Lucrezia-in-Zola. The third is Klaus-in-Gil. Once a dybbuk has infected a character, any actions that character takes while the "parasite" is in control are treated as though that victim-parasite combination is a separate character, which it is for all practical intents and purposes. While "Lunevka" does not infect an existing character it was created by a similar process and is recorded here as one based on this. Agatha is able to use Heterodyne signals, which members of her family have used to improve their concentration for years, to effectively suppress her dybbuk, and later built herself an army of Dingbots to hum one for her all the time. Later, she had her distress beacon also emit a heterodyne tune. Later, Lucrezia-In-Agatha acquired Agatha's Locket, not knowing Barry had originally made it to suppress Agatha's spark when she was growing up, it instead suppressed Lucrezia-In-Agatha when she put it on.
