The Crimson Cathedral

Share

Finally I made some worldbuilding for my bug gal, I wrote a short story to accompany this image:


The Crimson Cathedral is a place forbidden to young scavengers. Tales of strange demons who imitate and torment those who dare entering usually keep the inexperienced away. Yet, there are not a few fools who explore the ruins and every single one of them end up finding these beasts, or more acuratelly, these beasts end up finding them.

The Cathedral demons are shape-shifting beings who adopt the shape of whoever is near them, though there's always some irregularities. Nobody has ever seen them in their "true" shape, if there is one, as they always end up trapping and restraining their victims already transformed and before they can even be seen.

Though initially aggresive they are, to an extent, harmless, and their only objective appears to be getting biological fluids and excretions. It has been observed that, after this, they will change their shape once again to match even more accuratelly their victim, imitating their skins and eyes. After this, they will abandon the Cathedral and disapear through unknown means. Some claim to have seen these more accurate versions of themselves outside of the Cathedral. However, there are only rummors and an encounter like this has never been documented.

To this day it's unclear if the Cathedral Demons are inteligent or not or what their intentions are.
