Mortasheen - Malcontent by scythemantis Mortasheen - Malcontent by scythemantis
"Consuming Circus"

CLASS: JOKER

The largest of all Jokers but with very little actual mass, this membranous creature can fold into a smaller, more mobile configuration or unfurl into a huge, stationary "tent" emitting an invisible gaseous miasma. Even the most intelligent creatures exposed to its gas become convinced that there is something unfathomably fascinating within the monster's hollow body, and will experience pleasurable, fantastical hallucinations as they are slowly dissolved.

Malcontent may be stationed as the entryways to subterranean Joker hives or employed by smaller colonies as mobile hives themselves, luring victims to be shared as food or used as incubators. Despite the chaos that ensues within them, Malcontent are unusually calm, patient Jokers often described as "dopey." Its external, cranial tongue constantly tastes the air for potential food.

------

Pachyderf has been changed to "one of" the largest Jokers; there might already be another in the works that almost rivals this one :p

I'm guessing the largest joker may be the Joker hive itself.

I think I may have finally realized why I haven't dWATCH'd you:
Every time I had a message, there's a chance it could be a psychotic monster or a bloodthirsty parasite waiting to ambush me.
So I'll just keep tabs from elsewhere.

Does its massive stomach glow with an ethereal light? That just seems like something it would do.
