The nightmarish bane of new crobuzon's night skies..
the slake moth from
China Mieville's novel - Perdido Street Station
this bugger hypnotizes people with it's wings;
fixated on the swirling patterns in the shapeless black wings, the victim succumbs to a dazed stupor..
slobbering serpentine tongue shoots out... and sucks the victims neural pulses/brainwaves/dreams/mind..
nothing is left but a drooling imbecile... incapacitated,
death is better.
