MORTASHEEN - Snile by scythemantis MORTASHEEN - Snile by scythemantis
CLASS: UNKNOWN


This bouncing, trotting monster of indeterminate origin displays only a crude intellect and apparently exists in a state of uninterrupted euphoria, delighted and fascinated by even the most mundane sights and smells it passes by. Visual contact with its grinning visage, however, immediately induces an uncontrollable sense of dread in sapient biotypes, and subjects of its full, focused concentration experience an overwhelming rush of emotional trauma, convinced that the creature has "whispered" to them but unable to describe what was actually communicated. Those affected continue to perceive the monster everywhere they turn, its staring face plainly visible even (or especially) in total darkness. Unable to bear its haunting presence, they may flee in aimless directions or even seek self-destruction, and survivors may be plagued by nightmares of the being for years to come.

No amount of mental preparation seems to lessen the effects of a Snile's "whisper;" even those intimately familiar with the nature of forced neurological reprogramming consistently express that the Snile's attack is "different" and "real" in ways only a fellow victim could possibly understand. Those who nurture and respect a Snile long enough appear to develop a permanent immunity to their effects.

It's also delightfully, impossibly adorable, and I want one for a household pet.

It has the personality of a hyperactive puppy otherwise.

It only traumatizes people it has to!

Every time I encounter a scary creature in the media that isn't directly mean or threatening, just scary looking, I try to imagine it in reality being a sweet hyperactive or goofy derpy animal. Or the puppeteer/special effect artists being goofy fools with the puppets or 3d models backstage off screen.

I want to know what person survives "years to come" in Mortasheen for people to know this. Or what idiot backs up his deeply traumatized brain instead of doing a system restore.

Oh. I always assumed it was more common to keep a brain backup and some scraps of your dna to grow a replacement you when you die. Maybe with some psychic mechanism that triggers it when you die.

The idea of a paradimensional that interacts with our dimension in the same way as local organisms do is actually a lot creepier than inexplicable wall-phasing and gravity-defiance. It has really disturbing potential implications given what we know about other paradimensionals.
