A Bicorn is an European monster with the suggestion of demonic influence. The bicorn was a fat and flesh eating monster that grew by consuming faithful or wife bullied husbands.
The Chichevache is the female equivalent or rival to the Bicorn. Whereas the Bicorn is fat and fed off husbands; the Chichevache is always thin and feeds off loyal and enduring wives.
In Canterbury Tales (Chaucer) the bicorn is fat as there is no shortage of bullied husbands and the chichevache thin due to the rarity of faithful wives.

What do you think? Are these monsters nothing more than stereotypes?
