Silent walkers of the night, whose appearence on the roads of Brittany presages death for those who see them pass by. They manifest themselves as a tall gaunt man, driving a cart drawn by a pale horse, accompanied by two silent figures who walk beside or behind the kart. All have bowed heads so that one may not see their features. They appear at dusk, at the time when it is just possible to distinguish black from white, and pass silently by. The unfortunate observer does not realise that the hooves, the wheels and the feet of the walkers make no sound upon the rough road until they have passed him. When he turns to look after them, they have vanished.
