Quoth the Skadegamutc:

“Hey there, handsome… good job killing me there. You should take one of my claws… you know, as a memento!”

Kith Excerpt:

Listen, this story is true. There is a great demon-She-Bear, a witch from the Underworld. A group of brave hunters track her to her cave, and with their skill and strength they slay her. They know not to take her bones, nor eat her flesh, so they burn the corpse. One hunter, though, as brave and fierce as his fellows, hears her voice. “Taste some of my meat” it says, “Take one of my bones and craft a talisman.” One taste of meat won’t hurt he thinks, one small finger bone will be fine. He takes just a piece, just a sliver. Over the next season, that brave hunter changes.

He grows stranger, choosing to wear the clothes of a woman. This isn’t so strange among some Tribes, but then he grows hungrier, choosing to eat his meat raw. He then starts to flirt with everybody, making them uneasy. Then he grows mean, and angry. Soon he begins attacking his once friends and family. Only the wise-ones know what is happening. One night there are loud screams in the village, that once brave warrior is gone and his friends and family are slaughtered; killed and eaten by a great monstrous she-bear… The wise ones know the truth, the Skadegamutc is still alive. Listen, this story is true.

The Skadegamutc (Pronounced skuh-deh-guh-mooch) is a dangerously other Gilosa-quohi (Outsider, neither Nunnehi family nor Wapsu Thallain Family). They exist in the far reaches of the Underworld but can exist in this one by possessing a host that partakes of their flesh or carries a piece of their body. They are all female, even if their host is a male, and in a lengthy transformation, slowly alter the body to match their own Otherworldly Nature. Without a body to anchor them, they are flung back into the Deep otherworld’s, waiting for a way back. However, with enough hosts partaking of their flesh or bones, they can theoretically exist forever.



“Most people think witches are a coven of lesbians dancing naked in the forest celebrating the semen stolen from imprisoned hypnotized males, which they then use to inseminate one another using turkey basters in order to create a legion of demon babies. Well, that’s only part of it. We are also active in community outreach programs.”
