A bird of Iceland that preys on men and is fire-breathing with a petrifying gaze that turns its victims into stone. However its gaze also affects its own kind making it difficult to mate. People shoot these creatures down with arrows made with silver heads with a Christian cross engraved on it. This belief that they can be killed in such a way derives from finding ways to kill a Vampire but it has not been proven that the Skoffin have a weakness to silver arrow heads with crosses.
