MORTASHEEN - Longfellow by scythemantis MORTASHEEN - Longfellow by scythemantis
"The Looming Stranger"


While a growing number of trainers appear to have one of these mysterious beings in their employ, none can recollect precisely how or why the relationship began, as specific, detailed memories pertaining to the beings simply fail to form. Those regularly associating with a Longfellow can readily recall the outcomes of its actions - such as whether or not it successfully neutralized a threat - but never the actions themselves. Even those who survive an aggressive close encounter with the Longfellow cannot remember how it inflicted its signature spiral-shaped scars, but may suffer a long-term sense of being followed or watched, and many who have crossed one seem to disappear without a trace.

A Longfellow is only faintly visible from any angle but the front, and all witnesses - even recording devices - simultaneously perceive its "cap" angled towards the viewer, hiding whatever "head" or "face" it may possess and sometimes illuminated from behind by an intense, white light of unknown nature. Scanning equipment reads the monster as a freezing cold, empty space.

Absolutely cunning monster, you took something already very scary and made it much more unique and terrifying just by your image -alone-.

I am going to say THIS monster is the newest thing I would readily employ in my team if I had one o3o Though for some reason, and I am serious, I feel like a pair of revolvers would fall nicely into this guy's hands.

spiral scars? like those inflicted by Greenland Sharks?

The awesome factor instilled by the off the charts creepy factor is similarly off the charts. Everything about this Longfellow, from design to the text info you gave, is so perfect. The story of them, how no one can remember specifics, the thing about the "cap," CLASS: UNKNOWN, "The Looming Stranger," scanning equipment sees it as cold empty space. Oh man this is spine-tinglingly creepy and I just want to make zillions upon zillions of creepy things now. Totally inspired.

I could fangasm over this forever.
