NiloticA term referring to Negro peoples originating in sub-Saharan northeast Africa. Included are groups such as the Tutsi and Masai. Many of these groups are of taller stature than the average for humanity.
"The Nilotic" is also the name used of a fictional character or creature in Clive Barker's novel Sacrament. The Nilotic was a single, very powerful creature in ancient times, but was divided into two aspects, male and female, Jacob Steep and Rosa McGhee, who wander the earth for centuries, unaware of their origins. At the end of the book, the two are finally reunited into the original Nilotic.
