Rebirth of the Monster Maker (Submissions by C.S. Boyack)

(Submission by C.S. Boyack)

Tarscrit

Created from a Placid, which is a being made out of water, and a Bluecap Sprite, which is an earth fairy.  This combination happens when a Placid seeps through the soil and washes over a Bluecap.  Their magical energies merge to create the Feykin species known as the Tarscrit.  It is raised by the Placid parent due to a connection since both are liquid in appearance.  A big difference is that while a Placid is water, a Tarscrit resembles sticky mud that many mistake for tar.  Hence the first part of the name.  The ‘scrit’ comes from the sound it makes while digging through the earth.  It is rare for one of these Feykin to leave the underground because they can harden very quickly.

Malig Knight

These Feykin have mysterious origins because nobody is sure what they look like out of their armor.  Some people think they are the same species while others believe they are merely an organization of different Feykin.  The only proof that they are born from fairies is that they have praying mantis-like wings that are contained within the hinged backside of the armor.  Malig Knights are found on the continent of Canst’s Fields and they are nomadic.  Most times they avoid interacting with other species, but they are attracted to battles.  It is said that they gain strength from being near dying bodies, but people doubt this because they only kill during a battle.  They all use swords that they coat with an elemental energy, which is different for each one.

Alpine Bats

Designed to bring life to the Frost Barrens, the creator forgot that there are no mountains or caves in that region.  So, these chimeras flew north to the Crysvale Tundra and Pynofita Forest where they have become a nuisance ever since.  These animals have the wings, feet, and ears of a bat, but the body of a grizzly bear.  Not a full-sized grizzly bear, but one that has been shrunk to the size of a sewer rat.  Unfortunately, Alpine Bats think they are gigantic and will attack anything that looks edible.  They are one of the few chimeras that can breed naturally, which has led to them becoming an epidemic.  A summer hibernation helps keep them in check as well as a generous hunting season.  The creator is still in jail until he can clearly explain what he was thinking.

Moleverines

This burrowing chimera is bulky and has blackish grey fur, except for pure black and white on its head.  It looks similar to a skunk because of its coloration, but it lacks the scent glands.  Some of Moleverines are found in forests while others the plains, which determines their diet.  They tend to be carnivores, but will eat berries, insects, roots, eggs, and honey.  Now, you’re probably thinking this sounds exactly like a badger.  Well, that’s exactly how it acts and looks.  In fact, the creator thought that nobody knew what a badger was when he tried to pass this off as his own.  You would think the story ends there, but there is a rumor that he really did create a Moleverine before he died in poverty.  This beast looks like a badger, but has a bite that causes petrification and can pick up a scent from fifty miles away.  It is also capable of imitating the singing voice of a human to draw prey closer and, oddly enough, sticks to show tunes.

Undead Lichen

Lichen is a simple, crust-like plant that grows on rocks, walls, and trees.  You would never think it would be anything more than what it seems.  Yet, there is a species that is categorized as undead and Feykin.  This happens when a fairy that is older than 200 years dies on a bed of lichen.  The plants unwittingly absorb the blood for sustenance, which makes them vampiric in nature.  It gives them a red hue and makes them release blood-sucking spores if stepped on.  Undead Lichens are able to transfer their curse to other creatures to create fake vampires.  These infected drink blood for nourishment, lack all of the powers of a vampire, and can be cured with simple magic.  Still, there’s a high chance of getting killed before people discover the cause.

  1. Those are good. I can see children catching Tarscrit to make dolls out of them. Maybe a cottage industry for adult storekeepers.

    Well done and it intrigues me. I think the species I find most fascinating is the Molverines.

    “It is also capable of imitating the singing voice of a human to draw prey closer and, oddly enough, sticks to show tunes.”

    Creepy and alluring at the same time. 😀

    Charles asked for creature names recently for his Monster Maker posts. I submitted some for his consideration. Today he ran them through the Monster Maker and shared them. Check them out, and consider following this talented blogger and author while you’re there.

    The alpine bats and the moleverines are my favorites, though all are great. The undead lichen is particularly brilliant.
    Would love a tarscrit!

  6. Excellent, Charles. The show Tune singing molverine was my favorite. Reminded me of the singing frog in an old Loony tunes cartoon.

    The Molverine immediately had Hugh Jackman looming in my head. He is as you say ‘Multi-talented’ I’m lucky enough to have caught him in concert a few times. Great post!

  10. Can’t you see an evil witch putting that lichen all over her lair to get back at intruders?
