Me and my buddy Bammer decided for the good of our skills we would battle to the death... each week. The first week's topic was decided by me, and it is DREAM EATER!
The unique difference between the Blinding Nester and any other creature is its ability to infiltrate the mental activity of its victim. When the unfortunate prey awakens after being visited by a Nester, it has a new and adepted system of accessing memories. The system is virtually identical to the previous one save for one major difference--for the rest of the creatures life, it will never be aware that any Blinding Nester exists. It will even be unaware that it has ever been visited by one. From this point on the Nester is invisible to its victim, giving it the perfect defense.
The creature, otherwise defenseless, creates a very intense sound (much of which outside the range of human percievement) that when received in the mind is stored in the memory like any other. When the affected goes to sleep, dreaming, or REM sleep, a system to compile the events of the day, activates this memory much like a self runnable executable file on a computer. The
sleeper whose brain has been hijacked by this "meme" begins a specific mutation with the task to broadcast a sound beacon out of the range of human hearing to attract the creature that began it. This brings a small swarm of the creatures interested in feeding on the helpless human.
