The Hindu Kush Mountains in Afghanistan are said to be inhabited by the “Ail”, which are feminine-looking spirits with long, floating hair, pale eyes that look like orbs, and extremely light skin. They are believed to come out when the sun is so high that you cannot see your own shadow.
In general, the Ail go about their own business, but those who disrespect them have been attacked, as the Ail are known to be aggressive. For the most part, villagers and nomads to not venture out during the time of day that the Ails are out.
