concept: The level 12 Hammerstein RoopRoop, better known as the ‘Fargle’, can be found on the darkest of all dark easter planets called Three.
When it’s energy bar reaches a minimal level it begins chanting ‘Ess-Ess-Ess’ which helps it conjure a glowing easter egg for no apparent reason.
The glowing egg then floats there between it’s hands for a while. It floats and floats, never wanting to stop floating, because it’s glowing and thus magically imbued and partially evil.
I once ran into a Fargle during a dream where I fell into a portal after flying a harrier at a giant glowing ring. I spent many a days enchanted by the pointless glowing egg until I realized life is better with no pants on. I then woke up and thanked all the Fargles across the black dark cold, unforgiving, unrelenting space death.
Fargle Attributes:
Level: 12
HeartRate: 7
GlowingEggFloater: +3
NoPantsKnowledge: -7

Beatnik:
concept: The deadly and terrifying Chictobat is known on his home planet of Murdstar as the "Easterbastard". Legend has it that hundreds of years ago some Murdstar miners accidentally stumbled upon him while digging for materials to be used for fuel. The Chictobat was so furious from being disturbed from his slumber that he instantly killed the miners and everyone in sight and ate them. He took their skulls and painted them with multiple bright colors and put them on stakes in the front of his cave as a warning for others who might disturb him. Now the tradition is on every easter (the day of the miner incident) the villages collect corpses of various Murdstar creatures and paint the skulls with bright colors to pay tribute to the Chictobat. (well it IS a dark planet)

Hanuka:
concept: The Rabbat
The Rabbat is a giant creature on planet Exorb. Rabbats are very playful and naive - actually dumb but friendly. Scientists assume, they stem from australian rabbits that were orginially launched into sun but beared away and crashed on Exorb.
Because of their sheer size (in comparison) they know no enemies and nourish from plants. Every year around Easter, however, the Rabbat leaves his pretty furnished den to follow an ancient instinct his ancestors acquired on planet earth.
He delightedly seeks and hides eggs.
Eventually he takes Exhib-Eggs and carries them away. He hides them in trees, caves, behind mountains or underwater, expecting the Exhibs to have fun seeking them. All this is done in good faith, but the Exhibs see him as a cruel, evil creature punishing their sins.

concept: The dreaded CHUB CHUB! I'm moving so I don't have a lot of time this week maybe not next week either. But I've got to compete. It's a learning experience.
The Chub Chub, being of an ugly and fat nature, wants only but to be accepted and loved. He tried being Santa Clause but that didn't work out too great. So this time round he's trying to be the easter bunny. Unfortunately though the eggs he delivering are rotten =[ and his face frightens the children. He gets frustrated quick and don't be surprised if he starts throwing the eggs at you.

Sok N. Wett:
concept: During an archaeological dig, a group of anthropologist found a skull of a creature not ever recorded of this earth. Dr. Ludvig Loundestien, a certified historian of artifacts found a connection between the skull and the story scribed on the walls of the Mayan Temples. The story follows a young villager who found an egg highly decorated with lavish colors and patterns. Eager to show it to his tribesmen he rush back to the village to speak to the Elder. The Elder suggest they care for it and see what hatches. During the next 3 months the egg became bigger and bigger, and had to be left outside. The story ended with the picture of the creature holding
1 villager in each hand. This might explain the reason why the city was abandon or devoured over night by the creature. To this day, Easter celebrates the eggs as a warning, but was changed into sweets to capitalize on the holiday craze. If you knew the true history it really meant "Anything that is pretty and have a certain appeal isn't always the same inside."
The creature was named "The Spotted Spore" by the Mayans. Not much is known, but by the depiction of the creature on the wall, it had a bat like head, and the skull had a very small eye socket (Example A), so therefore it probably came from some dark areas like a cave or a planet with no light. It probably moves by sonar detection and picked up by it's huge ears (Example B). The ears act as a radar by picking up high pitch sounds through soundwaves to created a vision of sound. The legs are supported by a a reinforced bones that sticks out to support the massive weight of the creature. The spiked shell on it's back was probably to prevent damage to it's spores. This was the only creature found on the site. The project to discover more of the evidence of the creature's existance was drop due to Government pressue.

Lyliani:
concept: This is my Roospian...... It's the evolved version of the rooster. Unlike its ancestor, the Roospian has adopted certain qualities of the scorpian - the hardened chest area, the stinger tail, and also has quills in his mane (like the porcupine) that can shoot at its enemies... mainly the easter bunny (and it's descendants). The Roosters evolved into this new species because they were sick of the Easter bunny stealing their chicken's eggs! The roospian's legs is bigger and more muscular, and their traditional tail hides his stinger from other's view. It's new wings also allows the Roospian to take flight for about a minute, allowing it to claw its rivals with its legs.

Dougbot:
concept: The 'Evil Hopkins' of the planet Coleburt 9 is a slow and clumsy beast. Nearly blind, lumbering, and quite loud, it's amazing that the beast exists at all. Luckily it has developed a simple and effective way for catching food. The 'eggs' on it's back grow until they're about 2 feet in diameter. Then they break off, the Hopkins hides and waits for it's prey.
In each 'egg' is a mixture of horribleness and pain. A ticking time bomb of death. Squiggles (a small cute jellybean like rodent) are attracted by the bright light. Once there though....BOOM! The egg explodes and the Hopkins comes out of hiding, scooping the squiggles into it's slit like chest mouth using it's 'buckteeth'.

Matt Dixon:
concept: Easter egg hunts on the Dark Planet are fraught with danger because of this unfriendly fellow, the Snatterjack - a strange and magical beast which feeds on the innocence of children and is somehow able to create a brightly coloured cocoon around it's evil essence which looks very much like an easter egg. This pitiless fiend hides amongst other eggs, or along the trail of a hunt, waiting to be discovered. When a child touches the cocoon, the Snatterjack bursts free and swiftly sucks the optimistic light of childhood from the unfortunate youngster, leaving it's prey as a cynical, dissaffected adolescent.

Helzon:
concept: Lazareen
"There is no satisfaction of one's labors without painful sacrifice."
Excerpts from the catechisms of Karak'nor:
"Q:And what virtue shall be exalted above all others?
A: (in unison) Self-sacrifice for the good of all...."
The Lazareen the bringer of life anew. When the winter moons have drifted behind the southern hills the flag shall be flown and the children's quest of the treetops shall begin. The prize..the glowing azure egg of the Lazareen.
Whomsoever shall find the egg; tribute and homage shall be paid. Then, before all present they shall ingest it, and the sacrifice to the vermilion moon shall commence, for blood shall call blood. The vital essence shall be divided unto all. With and by the light of that blood shall the soils be ploughed. Upon the third rising of the moon, the child shall be risen with light of the lazareen within their heart and the visions of the year to come within their eyes and upon their screaming tongues. So it has been, so it is, so it ever shall be. Go with the promise of fire and blood. Praise the Lazareen and the blessings of Karak be upon you."

leckronium:
concept: Pahpian Acidic Ilve
Planet Etesar has been observing our kind for a long time. Of all the traditions that we have and celebrate, Easter has been the one tradition the Etesarians have adapted into their own culture. However they have a few problems. Etesar is a dark planet bound by no star. Etesarians get around by the light that their bodies produce on their own. Color is a rare and precious thing to own which is why Easter would appeal so much to them. The bright pastels are far from the shades of blue that the Etesarians are used to seeing. Their other problem is that no creature on the planet reproduces by eggs. After much searching, Etesarians found that the nearest creature that produces eggs is the Pahpian Acidic Ilve ( pronounced ill-vah ) which is on their closest planet Pahpy.
The Acidic Ilve can be a treacherous beast when confronted around it's young. Along with it's horned, club-like tail the Ilve has an ability to produce acid which it can spit from it's mouth when threatened. The eggs are normally coated with a layer of acid to protect the young from potential predators. However this is perfect for the Etesarians because when the acid covered eggs are exposed to their light the eggs turn wild colors that are perfect for celebrating Easter. Unfortunately, this has been bad for the Ilves since their population has decreased immensely. Not too many exist in the wild anymore and most end up in slings during mating season.
