Hi Polly,

I'm wondering if you could take a look at this entity draft I've been working on. It's pretty important that it gets uploaded soon since people should really be aware of this before it gets out of hand, so if you could take a look at your earliest convenience, that would be ideal.

Thanks,

Entity XXX - "Imposters"

sus.jpg

An instance of Entity XXX that was caught in Level 11.

Entity Number: TBD

Habitat(s): Variable

Description:

Entity XXX are shapeshifting creatures that have infiltrated several communities in various levels of the Backrooms; most notably, the M.E.G. outposts in Level 1 and Level 11. It is unknown what the true form of Entity XXX instances is, as they retain their most recently assumed form in death. They regularly take the form of humans, though they have been known to appear as animals or even objects. Their behavior is very similar to the baseline for humans, so the only known way to identify these entities is through their lack of any sort of odor, as well as a general gut feeling that something isn't right about them. As of writing, their agenda is completely unknown, so it is important to be alert.

Do's and Don'ts

Do:

  • Report any unusual activity to M.E.G. staff.

Don't:

  • Trust people who you don't know.

Hi Vincent,

It definitely needs some work before I can greenlight it. There aren't any obvious grammatical errors, but the tone is a little rocky, like: "[Don't] trust people who you don't know". I feel like that could be worded a little more professionally. Also, "Their behavior is very similar to the baseline for humans"; I don't think there's really a "baseline" behavior in humans.

More importantly, though, it's very barebones. This whole thing is a paragraph long. There's no "Behavior", no "Biology", and there's nothing here that tells me this isn't just one of the other skin stealing entities already in our database, or that they're even real at all (like, you said the photo is confirmed to be one of them, but confirmed how?). I would highly suggest you fatten it up a bit with some event logs (i.e., how did we figure out they existed, etc.) Message me when you've fixed these errors, and I can take another look.

Sorry that draft was a little light. I just wanted to get it out as quickly as possible considering these things are kind of important, but I understand why you want it to be a little cleaner, so I will get right to it. Give me a couple days to get it all together.

Also, you asked how I know they aren't Skin Stealers or something— Just trust me on that one, I'll explain in the draft.

Entity XXX - "Imposters"

An instance of Entity XXX that was caught in Level 11 (See event log below).

Entity Number: TBD

Habitat(s): Variable

Description:

Entity XXX are shapeshifting creatures that have infiltrated several communities in various levels of the Backrooms; most notably, the M.E.G. outposts in Level 1 and Level 11. It is unknown what the true form of Entity XXX instances is, as they retain their most recently assumed form in death.

Do's and Don'ts

Do:

  • Report any unusual activity to M.E.G. staff.

Don't:

  • Trust strangers with sensitive information.

Event Log:

Level 11, 5/7/2021

The first known incident involving Entity XXX was when a wanderer who went by the name "Harold Landau" was attempting to join the M.E.G. in Base Beta. He was seen changing form while in the bathroom, and subsequently fled the scene. M.E.G. member Vincent Dreesen chased him into the adjacent Level 9.1 where he was then slain by a Mangled. Since then, several similar occurrences have been reported in both Level 1 and Level 11.

Subject: Requesting Psychological Evaluation For Vincent Dresden
Date: 07.08.2021


Hi Solomon,

I've been getting some messages from a member of your base, "Vincent Dresden", claiming that people around him have been replaced by "Imposters". I believe these bouts of paranoia may be a result of a fear of Skin Stealers, as well as the recent Masked Maidens incident. In more somber news, however, I believe Mr. Dresden's paranoia may have been the cause for the recent disappearance of an M.E.G. member named "Harold Landau". Due to this, it is of the upmost importance that Mr. Dresden be detained immediately.

<Begin Log>

Dresden: So, Solomon, what did you call me in here for?

Myers: Well Vincent, I've been getting some concerning reports regarding your behavior.

Dresden: Huh?

Myers: Yes. I've been told you've been talking about "imposters" replacing people you know.

Dresden: Well yes, I'm writing an entity article about—

Myers: Vincent, what makes you think that these "imposters" aren't just people.

Dresden: I've seen one change. He said his name was "Harold Landau" and— and when I went to check on him I saw him change shape right in front of me.

Myers: I heard about that incident. Could you expand on it?

Dresden: Sure. I saw him shapeshift into another person, and I chased him all the way into Level 9.1 where he got killed by a Mangled. A bystander even snapped a photo as he ran by.

Myers: I see, thank you for your time.

Dresden: No problem, can I go now?

Myers: Oh no, we still have some things to go through.
