The baykok is a malevolent spirit from the mythology of the Chippewa nation, which is said to dwell in the forests of the Great Lakes region. It is said to appear as a walking skeleton with a thin layer of skin and glowing red points for eyes. It is also noted for the creaking sounds it makes when it moves. The baykok only prey on warriors and hunters, using invisible arrows or beating its prey to death with a club. This may be because the baykok was a hunter who starved to death in the wild. The baykok, after paralyzing or killing its prey, then devours the liver of its victim.
