A Demon from the beliefs of the Penobscot people. The Pskegdemus lives in the swamps manifesting as a crying woman in great distress. She does this to lure the kindhearted men and children towards her. It is conisdered highly dangerous to approach her with any form of compassion or to even feel empathetic for if one does then one will be under her full power. She would wail at night just outside places were people were living.
