Character of the Week #287
The Thing Under The Bed

Design the being that lives in the world under the bed

DEADLINE: SUNDAY 13th MAY 8PM GMT+1 (9PM British Summer Time)
Check your timezone!

As we all know, there are hundreds of different worlds out there; some accessible and other not. Some are even hidden within out own world, and can be reached through special portals, places in specific locations. One of the more common portal locations is underneath beds - children's beds to be more specific. The creatures in this other world creep through the portals at night - some are good, some are mischievous but other are nasty and want to cause harm.

This week, we would like you to design a being that lives under your bed. Bare in mind, this is an individual character, completely unique to you and the contents found in the world under your bed.

The Guidelines:
  • Can be any gender
  • Can be any time/setting
  • Can be any genre
  • CANNOT BE HUMAN! - It can be humanoid... but not human!
  • Consider what is under your bed... what kind of world might that create?
  • Can be either good or evil, but make sure it's clear. What is it your being wants in our world?
