look up any word, like wyd:
 
1.
shaht-ten-ves-en

A fake German loan word (cuz it was coined by an English-speaking American) that means a Shadow Person. It's a combo. of the German words Schatten (shadow) and Wesen (being). It was created to fit the pattern of names for spirits being German loan words.
