An undead creature inspired by Anishinaabe legends and The Song of Hiawatha, the baykok is a flying undead hunter with a terrifying cry. It’s been retooled slightly for RPG purposes: Its arrows are bone, not invisible, and it’s gone from devouring the liver of its victims to devouring their…

The principal events of her life are celebrated as liturgical feasts of the universal Church."~Catholic.org
