There is the hidden branch- the crypto-sapiens, if you will,- who are called syndrigast, or "peculiar spirit" in the venerable language of my ancestors

Miss Peregrine regarding Syndrigasti

Peculiars, also known as "Syndrigasti" in old peculiar, is the name for peculiars and refers to the population of peculiars in general.

Their peculiarity comes from a "second-soul" and seems to have some kind of physical form that manifests in the soles of their feet.


We'll meet you again, syndrigasti, I'm certain of it!

–Bekhir, Gypsy from Hollow City

Peculiar traits mostly skip a generation. Peculiar children are not always, or even usually, born to peculiar parents, and peculiar parents do not always, or even usually bear peculiar children.

Peculiar AnimalsEdit

Peculiar animals are, as the name suggests, non-human animals that are peculiar, unique, one of a kind, weird, and/or unusual.

Deirdre the emu-raffe and Addison the dog are two notable peculiar animals.
