1. A phantom creature; the combustible amalgam of the genus viola (family Violacae - ornate flowers in spring) and a bespectacled female bookworm. In mythology, she assumes the form of the celestial feminine: green-eyed, ornately inked and replete with 12-point antlers. According to Nordic lore, the antlers emit a powerful, vaporous neurotoxin.
2. A consumptive malady. Any sickness of heart surrounding contact and/or encounter with the phantom. There is no known antidote.
3. The third studio album by Minneapolis shyboy Jon James (known variously as Ghost of Jon James). Forthcoming, 2016.
