Big Book of Nasties: Ashen Rictus

These hideous creatures are relatively human looking. The Ashen Rictus, or Sneering Grey, is a lean creature with dull dark grey skin, large black eyes like pools, and a wide mouth filled with sharp canine teeth. The creatures tend to appear in small groups, and will often take the time to smile at passing bystanders as they eat a freshly eviscerated corpse. They won’t leave the corpse until they are somewhat satiated, or are attracted by the outright flight of new prey. They have a hunched posture, which causes them appear to be child sized, but in fact they are not much smaller than an adult human.

An Ashen Rictus on the hunt will often seem to appear out of nowhere, or shift into view after appearing to be a harmless person such as a child, or a homeless man.

About Byron D. Molix

I am an information technology professional in Missouri. I've been an avid fan of fantasy and science fiction novels, comic books, pen and paper role-playing games, computer games and console video games for the last two decades. My dream would be to one day make a comfortable living while having the time to pursue writing (novels, rpgs, etc.) as a full-time hobby.
