Davis, Walker and Audrey

   In “The Curse of Yig,” they are settlers in the Oklahoma Territory in 1889. Walker, who has a tremendous fear of snakes, is inadvertantly killed by Audrey when she mistakes him for Yig, the legendary snake god. She herself gives birth to three half-human, half-snake offspring, of which only one survives.
