Entity 40 - "Puffers"
rating: +2+x

Entity Number: 40

Habitat(s): Level 3

Description:

Puffers are very skinny humanoid beings with grey-colored skin. Their joints are so fragile, they have to walk on all fours to avoid collapsing on their own weight.

They have two large fleshy tubes protruding from their back, and pointing upwards. These tubes' height can vary from 50cm to 1 meter, partially depending on the size of the body itself.
They are capable of emitting a strange, white-ish colored odorless gas from these tubes, which is very dangerous. Inside this gas, there are microscopic bubbles containing an unknown species of prions. These prions enter the human body through any orifice, travel to the brain, and begin feeding on neurons.

Early symptoms are: stiff neck, dizzyness, blurry vision and lightheadedness.

Late symptoms are: vivid hallucinations, usually of family members or friends being brutally murdered, or of horrific, indescribable beings, as described by an afflicted person, cluster migraines, "alien hand" syndrome in one or more appendages of the body, which is where a part of the body moves on its own, convulsions and seizures, nervous system shutdown, coma, and death.

Death usually occurs from 2 weeks to 3 months after exposure to the gas.

Do's and Dont's:

Do:

  • Keep your distance.
  • Back away slowly.
  • Be as intimidating as possible. Puffers are docile entities, and will not get close if they perceive you as a threat.
  • If you are exposed to the gas, quarantine yourself from others. The prions can be transmitted through any bodily fluids entering another person's orifices.

Don't:

  • Get close.
  • Act scared, or try to run away.
