In Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game series, djur is the most inhuman kind of being in Demosthenes' Hierarchy of Exclusion. It is Nordic for 'dire beast'. Djur is described as the beast that comes at night and kills in darkness. Is mentioned a grand total of once in the entire series and mostly as an aside.
I have been informed that djur is Swedish for animal.
