In European folklore, there is a fae that exists whose task is to wander the night...
French: Bugul-Noz means "Night Sheperd":
a fae who protect humans from the 'dangers of the evening. It is in the night that the Unseelie Court ride and the Sheperd would protect humans from the danger of the Hunt. One of six originally. Now alone...'
Sounds an awfully alot like a character JZB fits...
Has a 'B'.
And a 'Z'.
Does the 'G' become a soft sounding 'J'?!!
So do you think that Karen used characteristics of this earth-bound fae, which very well could be Aes Si, Daione Sidhe, as a model for JZB?!
