The Grimataur

Author Comments

journal entry: 12 October 1995

it has been seven days since our paranormal investigation team arrived at Johannesburg in response to the peculiar illness and death reports coming from the remote rural villages quite far from the city.

by the third day, more and more people have gone into a coma with reports of people seeing a large dark figure swooping on the victim and emitting a bright blue light before leaving the victim motionless without response to any form of stimuli's.

last night our group encountered this being at Mr. adebowale's residence where we were attempting to gather more information. The creature is of hulking sizes measuring close to 2,5 meters more or less. It seems to have a reptilian like skin surface with a black color. further up into the creature's body protrusions can be seen resembling agonized faces of people. some appears to be seemingly calling out for help while others are expressionless. at the back of this creature, there are no longer protrusions instead figures of people from the waist up with distinct facial features and hair attached to it. as this creature seized Mr. Adebowale's daughter, the figure's eyes started lighting up in a blue color and they started moving as if being forced into a ritual dance before the creature's actual head emerges from the bodies in preparation to devour her soul.

Lauren, being the brave, stupid person she is, successfully distracted the creature and in turn gets captured and had her soul devoured instead. I saw her lay motionless amongst the rubble. still breathing. but motionless

right now our team has gain information from a local elderly that killing the creature may return her soul but it must be done within three days before her soul is gone forever. this information matches the fact that patients who were reported with the
'illness' died three days after coma. I'm not sure how we can manage to end this creature and how to even get close to it. or if any of us is even safe in this place. As far as i know it could breach these thin walls at anyti-


This sounds like an SCP.

Kiabugboy responds:

this is a journal entry of one of the paranormal investigation team's lead member. But it kinda does sound like an scp entry

this idea comes from one of the 5 sins of "Full metal alchemist" . Should've done something more original from my perpective...

Kiabugboy responds:

I never watched full metal alchemist although i'm afraid there is no way i can completely proof that to you. The idea for this design came to me when i was doodling some human poses that accidentally end up overlapping and i thought it'd be cool to have those attached on the grimataur with glowing eyes. Anyway, thanks for the review

This creature reminds me of Overlord 2, the blue goo infected living things mutating them into nightmarish creatures, and turning those it touched into the same astrocityies, or just killed there victems. Well done.

It's something mysterious, creepy and amazing. Don't know why, but it reminded me mixed Darksouls and Blodborne.

Makes me think of the classic multi-headed Norwegian trolls from folklore, unly like twice as scary. Great work!
