|— Vita about the creatures[src]|
The unidentified species of creature native to the habitable planet Kepler-22b is a highly aggressive species portrayed as being primal, predatory, violent, and hostile. The creatures have no apparent higher goals than the propagation and self-preservation of their own species, including the elimination of other lifeforms that may pose a threat to their existence.
The origin, nature, name, and possible agenda of the species is presently unknown.
The creatures have a rather disturbingly humanoid appearance, having a head with two eyes and ears, a small mouth with multiple sharp teeth, and four limbs with five-fingered toes and hands. Given that much of the native life on Kepler-22b strongly resembles life on Earth, this may be yet another coincidental resemblance.
Physical Abilities Edit
The creatures are fast and agile, but also weak.
Throughout Raised by Wolves Edit
They are first seen at the Settlement after the nearby crash of the Heaven's Ark into a mountain, which drew them there. After attempting to attack the children, Mother kills them with her supersonic scream.
Campion believes that Mother may have conjured the creature to make herself seem indispensable to the children. His theory is proven false when the creature attempts to attack, once again.
Father captures one of the creature and decides to have the children slaughter it, to teach them valuable life skills. Holly wounds the creature. Tempest kills the creature but later regrets it, having discovered that it was a mother. They cook and eat the creature's meat, Holly noting that it tastes like pork.
- They taste like pork.
- They can wag their tails.
- They are nocturnal and only come out at night.
