I am not sure who this is supposed to be, but I am intrigued by this character. S/he does little more than hiss and look at you when you interact with them. Does anyone know if this character was named? Or any other information about her/him?
S/he reminds me of Father-Mother a little. tongue.gif

That character has a lengthy story:

It didn't look like that always (you have to see the bloopers thread to see how it looked at first)

Here's an answer I gave to a recent interview where they asked me about how Father-Mother was 'born'...

"In the original, oldest prototype of the game... in the map 'The Northern Gate Bar' (where the creepy creature in the corner with the glowing eyes sits), was originally a creature that looked a little like Father-Mother. Edmundo Bordeu (who created F-M) put a baby on the table next to it and noticed that everyone who tested or saw that scene was shocked or disturbed by the picture (A creepy creature with a baby on the table). Many people said: 'How horrible, it's going to eat the baby!'. But there were no visible signs that the creature was going to do anything bad to the baby... and Edmundo felt that this was very interesting and that a character could be created from this.

Why did the creature necessarily need to be evil? Couldn't it be the father with its child? Just because the creature was ugly, it meant that it was evil? A lot of interesting questions were raised, and the exploration of the answers was what gave birth to Father-Mother, who eventually robbed the show and became the main antagonist of the story since he was by far the most interesting character we had in the plot."

So aside from being a part of the origin of F-M's design, it is not a free-standing character?
lol, i'm slightly disappointed!! tongue.gif Haha, but regardless, that creature is still my favorite of them all!!
