    If the character believes the Horror is the reincarnation of Mary, have the Horror be a monstrous version of Mary. What's the point in trying to look for other mythological monsters?

      ajf115 - Good call, I probably will go with Lilith. And I can use her Diablo 4 picture as great Horror image. 😈

      Tessie - To not offend Christians. It's much easier to assume 'this Beast thinks Holy Mary is monster' than 'in our game, we have Holy Mary AS monster'.

        Only if your player doesn't know how Beasts work and you don't make it clear that the Horror isn't the actual virgin Mary.

          So, let’s look on the Lilith…

          Lilith ( Hebrew / Mesopotamian )

          Demon called Lilitu is found in various Mesopotamian cultures - Sumer, the Akkadian Empire, Assyria, and Babylonia – where it’s ‘demoness of the night and wind’. In Hebrew tradition, Lilith appears as Adam's first wife, who was created at the same time (Rosh Hashanah) and from the same clay as Adam. (This contrasts with Eve, who was created from one of Adam's ribs.) The legend developed extensively during the Middle Ages. For example, in the 13th-century writings of Isaac ben Jacob ha-Cohen, Lilith left Adam after she refused to become subservient to him and then would not return to the Garden of Eden after she had coupled with the archangel Samael. In some versions of myths she is Mother of Monsters – or, at least, steal newborns.



          • Horror: ‘First Women Demon’ – Lilith was first women that did not subjected to Gods plan. She’s changed on her banishment, and become monster that looks almost as human. She now seduces man in sleep or steal newborns.
          • Family: Inguma – As once human, now demon, she still very close to idea of ‘humans’.
          • Hunger: Power/Punishment/Transgression – Luring man for sex or stealing babies can clearly be Hunger for Power. It can also by Punishment. Or Transgression. Choose yourself.
          • Atavisms: Mimir's Wisdom, Enemy Within, Alien Allure, Siren's Treacherous Song, Shadowed Soul, Eye of Heaven, Weakness Exposed
          • Nightmares: Everything You Do Is Worthless, They Don’t Love You, They Don’t Love You, You Can't Wake Up, You Deserve This, You Must Obey, You Are Better Than Them
          • Lair: False Eden – Lilith lives in what looks on first sight as Garden of Eden. It’s only false mirage of original Garden of Eden. Ground is covered in predatory vines and unstable. THINGS live on the corner of your eyes. And there is cave in the centre of it where Lilith sleeps.
          • Traits: Exposed, Jagged, Murmurs, Slick, Undergrowth, Darkness ( in cave ), Maze ( in cave )
