The Alan are deformed spirits that are told Tinguian Tribe folklore, located in the Philippines. These spirits are said to have wings, with fingers and toes that point backwards. This is what they believe these spirits do: take drops of menstrual blood, reproductive waste, afterbirths, and miscarried fetuses and transform them into human children. They then raise the children on their own. They believe that these spirits live among springs in fine houses, which are made of gold and other precious valuables.
