The Ferret

  • Mood:

Speaking on the books by Sergei Lukyanenko..

The guy who wrote Night watch and Day watch respectively.

In the latter book he mentions a creature called a "Beskud" He only gives a very fleeting description of the creature, mentioning thin lips, slit eyes and small sharp even pointed teeth.

All I can find in reference to the term is it means an unclean countrymen. Sort of like a cannibal I suppose. They debate whether it actually exists or if the author merely made it up however. Anyone else got an idea about it?

Many thanks to all.
