    A Nemesis, not sure of the family, based on the Furies

    He would feed by denouncing crimes against family, stalking his prey and reminding them of their faults while protecting their victims (thus feasting on their powerlessness to harm more). He would not touch his victims if possible, preferring haunting them in their dreams, harrassing them by anonymous letters, with the goal to push the worst of them to suicide.

    And for those who would ask, crimes against family are : abuse of your own children, casting them out, mistreating your parents in their old age, and of course kinslaying

      The stalkerish tone to it makes me think Eshmaki, personally. Might want to also go for Ugallu; either way, Eyes Of Heaven and Needs Must sound like necessities.

        An Eshmaki Nemesis...who used to be a Hero, and still hunts his fellow Begotten, sating his hunger for Punishment by seeking out freshly-fed Beasts and slaughtering them ritually. He doesn't have his Hero capability to lay Anathema, but he does have the full host of powers that come with Homecoming.

            A few simple ones I want to play:

            A Makara Ravager, who runs an illicit gambling den, feeding off of people destroying their own lives, risking everything on a roll of the (rigged) dice.

            An Anakim Tyrant, who trains as an MMA fighter. Guess how he feeds.

            An Ugallu Punisher, who used to be a Catholic Priest in Spain. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

            And of course, the Eshmaki Predator Slenderman clone.

              That could also work with a former Frankeinstein Fury, having Nightmare about her previous existence and becoming a Namtaru Nemesis.

                Former Basement-Dwelling (& formerly teenaged) Eshmaki living out of a "haunted" house of his own design. His nightmare is a voiceless monster that only speaks when spoken too (kind of like Echo from Greek Mythology), and is a known Nemesis that feeds by telling his "victims" which punishment room they will be sent to if they break his household rules.

                    * Eshmaki Predator

                    * Youngest child with one or two MUCH OLDER siblings -- like a fifteen and eleven year age gap, so they were leaving home just as he was getting old enough to miss their absence. Grew up mostly alone in a great big house with the occasional babysitter, latchkey, always hated being alone because SCARY AND NEVER REALLY ALONE BECAUSE *SOMETHING* WAS THERE THAT NOBODY ELSE COULD/WOULD SEE.

                    * Became gregarious and outgoing as he got older so he would *have* to be alone. ENFP? Possibly. Got way into both athletic and artistic pursuits to fill pretty much every moment with some sort of activity that would keep his fears at bay.

                    * Got waaaaaaaaaaay into backpacking/hiking/mountaineering/adventure sports in college/early adulthood and on one such expedition with a group of friends got caught in a bad situation -- I'm thinking an avalache/rockslide/unexpected blizzard -- something that forced him to literally or metaphorically "cut the rope" that someone else could survive and in the ensuing spiritual katabasis finally met the SCARY THING THAT WAS STALKING HIM HIS WHOLE LIFE and BECAME IT.

                    * Back and forth about whether or not his friends/family think he's dead. "Thinks he's dead" means he essentially had to adopt a new identity. "Came back *different*" means he's still got a friends/family support network -- i.e., access to greater resources -- and people he's likely walled off a part of his new existence from, generally for their own protection.

                    * In any case, he came back *different.* Still artistic and athletic but less outgoing, more reserved, and his art took a generally darker cast than it had thus far, his predatory nature starting to shine through in a manner that makes spirit hunting in the Primordial Realms of those souls effected by his imagery and music always a basic possibility.

                    * Owns a home on Marrowstone Island, which is his primary residence and the location of his home studio for more traditional artistic pursuits -- multiple physical media and plays multiple instruments -- as well as having a habit of leaving spontaneously arranged artistic displays scattered all over the island. His neighbors would probably be less charmed if they realized their true purpose. He maintains a "hunting camp" in the Picket Range of the high North Cascades that is exactly what it sounds like -- where he goes when he needs to feed on flesh and blood. He mostly tries to confine these predations to other (nonhuman) predators, though there have been a few unlucky backpackers whose bones he was forced to put to artistic uses over the years.

                      Another Couple I've got...
                      • An Anakim Predator, that arranges and competes in Gaming Tournaments, preying on the fear's of Gamers by using overwhelming Force and cheap tactics in Games. Known too have a Nasty temper, but will never phsyically harm people. If he Loses he congratulates the winner with a Little Nightmare he's concocted that makes them lose their sense of balance and co-ordination, will regularly blame the Game/Console/Computer for his own failures.
                      • A Namtaru Ravager, Radio Presenter/Critic who harshly judges peoples work and stories from the "Darkness" of the Airwaves, He Takes news stories, films, songs, books and deconstructs them down to the core themes and tells people Why they shouldn't like them. And Judges anyone who does like what he destroys as a Hypocrite/Adulter/Nazi etc. Off of the radio he's a perfectly nice person who funds charity and loves half the things he "Feasts" on, he's Harsh but he's only doing it because he wants the creators too understand that the world isn't Nice too those who Dream. (He's "Ugly" with the Truth, people hate when your honest with them and critical of what they do).
                      Both are likely too create their own Heroes and try their best too help them "overcome" the narrative they are bound by. I can See the Radio Presenter being especially vocal about things his Hero does if he realises he caused it.

                        -She was always a troubled kid. She had night terrors, and two years ago, she acquired he certitude that her older sister had been replaced by an alien. She tried to warn her parents, but they simply send her see a doctor who prescribed her some medication that made her too confused and apathetic to act.
                        She didn't resent her parents though, since now too tired to flee the monster that hounded her dreams, she finally stopped running and faced it.
                        Now aware of who and hat she really was she could comfront the thing living her sister's life. Things were tense for a while, but creature wasn't that bad, all things considered, they even became friends, but still, it doesn't give it the right to replace her sister (Family is important after all). She knows she'll have to do something about it soon, but she hasn't yet decided what it will be.
                        Ideally she'd like to get her sister back. If it isn't possible... well someone will have to pay for that.

                          This is pretty similar to one of Anteros's ideas, but I wanted to share it anyway. It's loosely inspired by a friend of mine, though he's actually mostly a nice guy. :P

                          A serpent broods among the kelp beds and broken ships off of San Francisco's Ocean Beach. Some say that the cold of the arctic currents and chilling fog of his home has seeped into this Makara Tyrant's soul, but the truth is that the cold is simply part of his nature. Few passions stir his steady heart, and his ice-blue eyes reveal no hint of emotion beyond whatever mask he chooses to present.

                          The serpent lurks within several of the disparate subcultures that make up the City's kink scene, and seems to have an uncanny ability to attract a certain type of prey. Those who come to him are eager to feed his hunger. They crave debasement, draw pleasure from being bound and silenced, and thrill at the sensation of true helplessness that he grants them. He feasts at the threshold where terror meets ecstasy, and always leaves his meals begging for more.

                          The serpent never does any permanent, physical harm to those from which he feeds - at least, not on purpose. Indeed, he abhors the sight of blood, and he views those Beasts who indulge in more grisly feasts with distaste. When push comes to shove he prefers to dispose of his enemies by smothering - either drowning them or squeezing the life from their bodies like a monstrous python.

                          On the other hand, the serpent has little awareness or care for the emotional wounds he leaves in his wake. He pushes those who provide his meals to the very limits of their comfort zone, and sometimes well beyond, and once their willing submission has ceased to satisfy his hunger, he abandons them like an apple core or the wrapper of a candy bar.

                            That reminds me.

                            An Anakim whose Astral Soul is a massive Moose in a blank white Lair.

                              And this is reminding me the Eshmaki's Soul of pure Darkness that Hungers for Ruin and haunts little town of Bright Falls. The Soul finally overtakes the reporter comming to settlment...

                                A Mummy/Beast crossover character idea:

                                Makara Predator, lives two lives: one as a guide and survivalist in the deserts of Africa. She knows how to get from town to town safely and quickly, and how to read the moods and weather shifts.

                                Second life is as a high priestess/recruiter for a cult. Her Prey in this case is people who seem like they'd make good cultists, and she takes them out into the wastes and harries them towards the Tomb. If they die, clearly they weren't actually cut ou; if they make it, then they get a chance to become a cultist. Either way, she gets what she needs.
