    Concept: Skull Pincher
    The Skull Pincher lives within a skull to protect it's soft body which has adapted to fit inside. The creature can be found in places such as sacrificial temples, burial grounds and battlefields and preys on any smaller creatures it can find. The Skull Pincher is often mistaken for a spirit of the dead by humans, when they witness the creature skittering across the ground.

    Artist: Lege1

    Concept: Skull Collector
    The Skull Collector is an over sized, prehistoric insect that closely resembles that of an aphid. It's body is not only very soft but it is a bright green that stands out to predators. The Skull Collector was not very fortunate to be blessed with the skin color it got from it's creator but that's fine. This insect will go about carelessly collecting skulls that serve as it's armor, which help it also blend in with its mountaneous terrain. Most Skull Collectors will fold up and hide under the skulls that they have collected on their back. They are also known to take the largest skull that they've collected and wear it on there head as a protective shield/ intimidating helmet. The Skull Collector is a simple life scavenger that is simply just trying to survive in it's life. It is not built to do much more than scavage and hide. This insect is definitely classified as prey. Feel free to prey on this creature as you'd like and keep in mind that it's toxic blood is composed of a chemical similar to cyanide,lol.

    Concept: Auricupridian Soldier
    Patrolling the tunnels surrounding the Queen's chamber are the soldier class of creatures. These highly aggressive beasts collect and adorn themselves with the skulls from their victims. They were nicknamed the "Skull Collectors" by the 7th Martian Marine division that first encountered them inside Olympus Mons. Unfortunately over half of the division was slaughtered, and their heads taken.

    C.O.W. - #102: Skull Collector - Voting!

    Artist: Scorge

    Concept: Bxcfrictum
    Born of the fourth dimension and used by the tyrant Truellmksganaruxciofe, these beasts are the burden and the brains at the same time, used to collect and transport the skulls of every species and living entity back to their master. Tusks for prying the skulls of the hapless victims, spindly legs for shearing the flesh and other useless matter from the true soul of the being, and the strength to bring down any living thing in any universe. These are the true collectors of history, the true documentors of time and what it has offered for its efforts. Don't worry about seeing them coming. Just worry about when they're done.

    Artist: Michael Jaecks

    Concept: The Atoxlugon
    These foul creatures treat the skulls of any and all living beings as legal tender or currency. Some are rare, some are common, some are mint and some are broken, but one race in hell knows enough to set the standard. The Atoxlugon are hell's brokers, bankers and captains of commerce. Some simply hoard skulls in great cavernous vaults, obsessed with collecting more. Some Atoxlugon pride themselves at being afficionados identifying the various types of skulls. They spend many hours of study picking at them with their extra set of forcep-like pincers. And although some atoxlugon will stoop to stealing skulls directly from graves, this is considered rather low-brow by other devils. Every fiend knows the most valuable skulls of all are the ones handed over by the condemned souls themselves.

    Artist: Einen

    Concept: Puppet Wyrm


    The puppet wyrms are lazy dragon-like creatures roaming the southern mountains. They are scavengers who have evolved to be able to completely avoid confrontations. By keeping skulls from other animals that they find, they can put them on their glowing tails to create frightening puppets that scare away enemies. This was most likely developed so that they would never have to flee, or do anything resembling a physical effort.
    As the wyrms grow and get older they manage to lift heavier and heavier skulls. Among some of the older ones this has become a game, and the male with the finest collection of big and rare skulls often becomes the patriarch of the flock.
    The laziest ones sometimes use their own grandparents' skulls, but this is somewhat frowned upon in the puppet wyrms’ society.

    C.O.W. - #102: Skull Collector - Voting!

    Artist: PutridusCor

    Concept: Ossozard

    The skull collector... it picks up every skull, both human and animal, that can be used to incorporate them to his tail, using his saliva as a powerful glue and make them mesh together to be used as an armor and a weapon both to defend himself and to hunt for food. His prays remains will be later incorporated to the referred shell. This creature also replaces old weathered skulls to make his armor even more durable.

    Concept: The skullabsorber

    A skullabsorber is a creature which has no upper head of its own, it needs to wear skulls of other creatures in order to survive.
    When it finds a new skull it swallows the old one and gains strength of it

    Artist: P-Graphix

    Concept: Lego Cranium


    The ‘Lego Cranium’ (I collect skulls), are vain creatures. Not only they live of the bones from human and animals, they also expose the skulls on there body. This way the Lego Cranium shows how high he is in his pack.

    With his sphere witch he can use for navigation and detecting skulls he locates human or animals. If he found his victim, he will catch it with one of his two catchingarms.
    Than he usually will kill his prey with his scissor on the back of his tail.
    Fur and flesh he will throw away, only the skulls he uses to feat himself.

    Artist: yoitisi

    Concept: Skullachaon

    Although this creature has some resemblance to both the hermit crab and a tortoise, this primitive creature has its roots in the family of worms. As it is unable to grow its own bones and skeleton and its body is weak and soft, it uses skulls and bones from dead and decayed creatures to cover its body to protect it against predators.

    Their lifespan is unknown, but some Skullachaons are found to be over 400 years old. Their size mainly depends on the main skull they carry, which is also a good indicator of their age - the older the Skullachaon, the bigger the skull. Once in a year it sheds its old skull and finds a bigger one so it can grow. They also use the skulls to grant them teeth, as they can't grow their own. Therefore it needs to collect skulls on a constant basis to replace teeth that have fallen out of worn off.

    The Skullachaon is mainly found at boneyards where other animals go when they feel they're about to die, much like elephants do in our world. Their main food is dead animals that have just died in the boneyard, but the occasional carrion bird is a welcome change.

    Artist: Lander

    Concept: Surflarp
    The Surflarp (a bad excuse for a sidestep in evolution and the minor breed on the world of Sixten) solved it's problem with it's soft shelled eggs. Prior being the base of nutrition for a great deal of inhabitants now found it's protection inside the cranium of deceased humans. After the coming of man the species has greatly increased it's numbers. This will most likely be the case for some time to come until the natural recourses run out and mankind leaves a drained world alone to find treasures on a new one.

    Concept: Cave Hamlet
    - A creature that should be long extinked. Although a caring and loving parent for its young, its intelligence level is close to that of a worm. Also due to the fact that it spends its whole life in a dark cave its almost completely blind, and so when the female lays eggs it collects every thing that resembles them and is out of the nest. In most cases round thick skulls because like eggs they contain calcium and taste the same.
