  • $\begingroup$ One man every night only one? Trivial? or Metaphorically used? $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Mar 3 '17 at 13:28
  • $\begingroup$ Mmm I don't wanna give it away too much so I won't say more than: in what I am referencing, just one man... but the title may require you to be from a certain country but it's not necessary for the other clues. $\endgroup$ – n_plum Mar 3 '17 at 13:34

    $\begingroup$ @n_palum If the clue is specific to one country, then should this question have the trivia tag? $\endgroup$ – MikeQ Mar 3 '17 at 18:44
  • $\begingroup$ @MikeQ I added it, again still not familiar with every tag.. but it could be helpful for the title as I mentioned to techidot, but the rest do not require it. $\endgroup$ – n_plum Mar 3 '17 at 18:45

Maybe you are

Blood

I am History and Heritage. & hint 1

Every person has blood in their body. People's ancestry and heritage is also known as a bloodline, and people of the same family are said to have the same blood.

I am a Strand's Source.

Red blood cells contain DNA strands.

I am an Extractor of Enrichment. & hint 2

Red blood cells carry oxygen from the lungs, to the rest of the body. If not, the person dies.

As for the title, I don't know. If it is specific to one culture, then I am not familiar with the reference.
