MONSTERS AND CRYPTIDS
Anxicae, the "Silent Herald"
The Anxicae are born out of long, dark storms, great pestilences, wars, and other dark times of long, enduring suffering and upheaval. Whether they were once human, we do not know, but something of us helps to give them form. They howl silently as they stride across barren landscapes and empty cities. They are not aggressive, angry, or menacing- they simply fill the atmosphere around them with a dense, suffocating anxiety, stress, or vague dread. And rippling through it all, is a sense of strange, lonely despair.
As soon as the sun shines, or peace returns, and the world begins to blossom once again, these strange monsters fade into the dark, grey places again. They are never truly gone.
