Because of its
ability to slip
through block
walls, it is said
to be from an-
other dimension.
By licking, it
saps the victim's
life. It causes
shaking that won't
stop until the
victim's demise.
In total darkness,
where nothing is
visible, HAUNTER
lurks, silently
stalking its next
Its tongue is made
of gas. If licked,

until death even-
tually comes.
It hides in the
dark, planning to
take the life of
the next living
thing that wanders
close by.
