To end up like Camot

Val. «Acabar com Camot»

Valencian culture developed a mythology of characters which, despite the ravages of time, still appear in some expressions and sayings. Some of them are goblins who dwell in the woods or spirits which are supposed to kidnap and torture the children. In this case, Camot stands for the character of the wretched, somebody who was bound to die or who came to a sticky end. When somebody goes astray, usually one tells him/her that he/she will end up like Camot (Acabaràs com Camot!)
