|Unnamed Red Herring-like Wesen|
|Notables:||Charles "Red" Herring Lynk|
When woged, they have a prominent fish-like head with red-orange scales. Their head has a fish-like frill on top, and they have similar scaly frills on the sides of their neck where one may expect to see gills, as with Skalengecks. They lose the hair on their heads they have in their human form, and the rest of their body, including their hands, develops red-orange scales. Their eyes are also fish-like, and they have fairly sharp teeth that vary slightly in size, separated by several millimeters in their gum line.
Not much is known about this Wesen's behavior, other than that they tend to be reclusive and do not say much. Their nature is inherently mysterious and, in turn, can mistakenly lead to them becoming initial suspects in the course of criminal investigations. They appear to particularly enjoy raising such false suspicion surrounding themselves, however. Along the same lines, they appear to have what one may describe as a "unique," if not good, sense of humor.
- The term "red herring" was likely invented in 1807 by English polemicist William Cobbett, who referred to one occasion on which he had supposedly used a kipper, or red herring, to divert hounds from chasing a hare, something that was never an actual practice of hunters. The phrase was later borrowed to provide a formal name for the logical fallacy and literary device.
