The Rake

The Rake is a mythical creature whose story was discovered on Something Awful Forums. It is describe as pale and humanoid, with it limbs twisted at odd angles and having long talons to harm its prey. Its movements are often described as canine. Its eyes are described to be black. Its presence is often accompanied by heavy breathing, whispering and loud growls. Witnesses who encounter the Rake, encounter it at night, when it perches near them, awaiting for its victim to awake, if they do not, it will leave demands, often telling the victims to leave. Its voice is high-pitched and somewhat indescribable. One way or another, if its victims do not meet his demands it continually visits them and eventually harm and/or kills them in their slumber.

Here are a few witness encounters:

  • (This is a suicide note)
    “As I prepare to take my life, I feel it necessary to assuage any guilt or pain I have introduced through this act. It is not the fault of anyone other than him. For once I awoke and felt his presence. And once I awoke and saw his form. Once again I awoke and heard his voice, and looked into his eyes. I cannot sleep without fear of what I might next awake to experience. I cannot ever wake. Goodbye.” This was found in a wooden box. Found in the same wooden box were two empty envelopes addressed to William and Rose, and one loose personal letter with no envelope:
    “Dearest Linnie, I have prayed for you. He spoke your name.”
  • A Journal Entry (translated from Spanish): 1880
    “I have experience the greatest terror. I have experienced the greatest terror. I have experienced the greatest terror. I see his eyes when I close mine. They are hollow. Black. They saw me and pierced me. His wet hand. I will not sleep. His voice (unintelligible text).”

In conclusion, monster-myth-or-fact would rate the Rake as 20% plausible, due to the fact that, not only it this a creature of the Internet, but it was discovered on Something Awful Forums, in a create paranormal photos contest.
