enormous slug, fearsome for those who have magic. It was forged by the tears of the Earth Mother Nemaine and it devours the magic of others, draining them of their power.

Although such magical animals were believed to have been entirely whipped out during the Great Purge, Morgana Pendragon, High Priestess of the Triple Goddess, was in possession of a special box, which had the sign of the Gean Canach on it, and it contained the infamous slug. She used it first to strip a sorcerer named Ari of his magic (casting this spell: "Aweax þu meteþearfende! Þicge þu þone drycræft þe þinan deorcan mode gefylþ"), just to make sure she could use it on Merlin. One of her Saxon warriors, in fact, infiltrated Camelot and put the box with the creature under Merlin's bed. When he came home from the tavern, he was attacked by the slug and, before Gaius could kill it with a shovel, it consumed the young warlock's powers (The Diamond of the Day: Part One).

  • One of Morgana's men takes the box into Gaius' rooms.
  • Merlin's magic being sucked out.
  • The creature after having been killed by Gaius.
  • The symbol of the Gean Canach.
