Snik was born sometime after Thaegan's return to Deltora. Its father, if there was one, is unknown. It and its twelve siblings roamed Deltora's northeast, terrorising the countryside.
The Deltora Book of Monsters
Snik and its siblings captured a group of travellers on the road and ate all but one before falling asleep. The man was able to escape, though he had no memory of anything before the incident. Josef met this man, and learned information about Thaegan's children from him for his book.
Snik, Pik, and their nine surviving siblings—Hot, Tot, Fie, Fly, Zan, Zod, Lun, Lod, and Ichabod— join forces to seek vengeance on Lief, Barda and Jasmine for the deaths of their mother and siblings. Aa wolves, they pursued the companions and caught them in a net trap. Lief tricked them into fighting one another over how to divide up the three people. The fighting became lethal, and Snik and all its siblings died, except for Ichabod.
Snik was covered in long brown hair, like its twin Pik.
In the anime it is a brown baboon-like creature with goat-like horns.
Snik had shapeshifting powers that allowed it to take on the form of a wolf, and possibly other forms as well.
