by Micha F. Lindemans
A fabulous monster who lives only on good women, and was hence all skin and bone, because its food was so extremely scarce. It is the anti-type to Bicorn. Chaucer introduced the word from the French chichifache (thin or ugly face) into chichevache (lean or meagre-looking cow).
