|~ Description of the Hunting Horrors appearance.|
The Hunting Horrors are the vicious servants of the Crawling Chaos, sent to do its bidding when the god does not feel like doing the task itself. The writhing beings are said to constantly shift form, making them hard to even look upon. The Horrors prefer darkness, as they are dispelled by light. It is said a strong enough burst of light could sear one to dust, but so far, nothing has ever done so save for an attack from Nodens. Hunting horrors act as foils to Nodens' Nightgaunts.
Powers and Stats
Name: Hunting Horrors
Origin: Cthulhu Mythos
Classification: Mysterious beings of unknown origin, very likely created by Nyarlathotep
Attack Potency: Unknown (Hunting Horrors have never been shown in combat or been seen attacking something they were not merely intent on capturing for Nyarlathotep)
Lifting Strength: Unknown
Striking Strength: Unknown
Durability: Multiverse level+ (Completely unaffected as they endured the creation and destruction of endless universes)
Range: Extended melee range due to their size, but this hardly matters due to how fast they are.
Standard Equipment: Unknown
Intelligence: Unknown. They seem to have little will of their own and only follow Nyarlathotep's orders.
Weaknesses: Hunting Horrors are naturally averse to light, as it causes them pain. Strong enough bursts of light can sear them to dust, though only a being such as Nodens displayed the capacity to produce such light.
Notable Individuals: None. Hunting Horrors seem almost drone-like and have little to no sense of individuality.
