From strange, unexplainable sicknesses happening at home to perilous attacks in unholy, haunted places, demonic encounters have been recorded for centuries.
One such entity seems to occur rather frequently in our own time, assailing people who attempt communication with the dead via the use of a Ouija board. This being is most famously (or, perhaps, infamously) known as Zozo.
"'Who are we speaking with?",' an otherwise harmless Ouija story begins, recited by a Your Ghost Stories contributor. "The cursor repeatedly went from Z to O, and continued to do so after the question was asked."
So the recounting goes for not just April, the poster, but many others. Innocently sitting around their communication tool, a strange character hijacks the session and repeatedly slides from the letter Z to O.
The demon Zozo has been recorded messing with and attacking people for centuries. In fact, Jacques Collin de Plancy's Dictionnaire Infernal, published in 1818, tells of a young girl who was possessed by Zozo two years prior.
The being often appears friendly, often even funny, at first - but things always take a turn for the worst.
In April's story, Zozo claimed that he "wanted" one of her friends. Some of the group cussed at the demon, frustrated by its repetitive answers and lack of clarity. When one of them finally took his hands off the cursor, everything changed.
"All of a sudden I didn't feel like myself," recites April. "I felt as if something was inside me. I felt the most intense hatred I've ever felt before. I began to laugh hysterically and then cry like I had no control over my emotions."
Another story, from True Ghost Tales, states, "It [Zozo] always wound up being very nasty and commented freely about how it wanted to posses my girlfriends and take them to paradise. When asked where paradise was, it spelled H.E.L.L."
Have you ever encountered Zozo during your ghost and demonic investigations?
