Crow Eater by AlectorFencer Crow Eater by AlectorFencer
EDIT: I heard it way too often. THIS IS NOT FOLKLORE! It's my original character! I dreamt of it and then put it on paperrrr. D:
______________________________________________


"Shhhh... don't make a noise... not even a cracking of a small stick beneath your feet, your breathing, even your heartbeat.
They can hear you.
They will alert him.

He will get you.



The folks of the mountains have told many stories of the Crow Eater. This creature has got no better name they say but there is no better one that could describe this creature's doing.
People rumor that he is already thousands of years old, others say he watched the mountains form, the land become dry and the trees sparse.

In time of change and the lands turning dead, he was filled with anger and sadness. Now his spirit wanders along the cold mountain pathways together with crows.

His shape is of a terrible creature. His hands are massive, his claws long and brittly, his teeth are tools of death and his eyes empty hollows.

Some say he is a condemned creature that got a strange pact with thousand of birds, others say he is a protector.
At night, he watches out that nobody is outside anymore otherwise he will hunt them down.
His occasional visits to the villages on the foot of the mountain can be compared to a feast of the Crow Eater.
Followed by thousands of crows, he blackenes the atmosphere and the sky and scares all the villagers by devouring his followers and spilling their blood on the people's housings and ground.

If the Crow Eater doesn't feel respected and feared, he will take villagers to keep them captured until they either starve, get eaten by the crows or devoured by himself.

Always look up to the sky because if it starts moving fast and blackening and you hear the endless rows of crow yelling, hurry and look for shelter before he will appear in front of you as it could be the very last time you saw daylight.

Thank you ever so much for cheering me up with all the lovely comments and masses on faves. I promise to you and especially to myself that I will take more time for my personal artwork in future so that something like a terrible artblock won't build up again. :blowkiss:

- a big walkthrough of this is soon available, I will update it in my journal and here once it's finished. <3

I'm not afraid, obviously he doesn't eat humans, it's a Crow Eater.
