Thirty Pockets

Sometimes said to be a demon and at others times to be an evil woman, Thirty Pockets is so named because her coat has thirty pockets, each one with a different kind of knife. The knives are sharp, and shine like new, though Thirty Pockets herself is old and dirty, and her clothes are rags. She is said to make her home under Telelelene houses, or sometimes in houses which have been destroyed by fire, and to murder any children who come exploring.


  1. Has anybody ever been able to steal a knife from one of Thirty Pocket's pockets?

  2. I like it.

    @Trey, your question reminds me of Dunsany's short story "How Knuth Would Have Practiced His Art Upon the Gnoles".
