Miscellaneous Creation: The Stitch Men

I’m not really sure what twisted part of my mind came up with these creatures, but I thought I’d share them. I call them the Stitch Men.

———

Stitch Men are made from the dismembered corpses of people. An angry spirit will try to seek revenge through these corpses, reattaching limbs by taking on the form of threads reattaching the body parts. Though their limbs hang loose, the threads act as new muscles and allow these undead creatures to move. Unfortunately, these threads do not allow them to speak or communicate in any way, and only allow to carry on the spirit’s ill will towards humanity.

The most fearsome of the Stitch Men is known as Plague. A truly vengeful spirit took hold of a former powerful warrior whose scattered body parts had been taken by rats and filled with plague. Spreading rot and disease where he goes, many have tried to take down this fearsome man, but none have succeeded. The myth behind Plague is that he only appears on the night of a New Moon in a place where his weakness, fire, can’t get to him without causing untold amounts of damage and destruction. From there, he walks the streets, letting disease spread. At false dawn, he takes the life of one victim, and then leaves without a trace that he’d been there.
