La Llorona are the ghosts of women who have abandoned their children in order to be with a man. Once such a woman dies she will be barred entry into the afterlife until she has been re-united with and made amends to her children. Unfortunately, if the woman's children have died before her she is likely cursed to walk the World Between in search of children who no longer exist. A La Llorona will seize upon any child she finds and attempt to carry them off; a La Llorona will mistake any child she encounters for one of her own.
