Featured Creature: Devil's Square, Scream

Excerpt from Liam Hofstadter's report for the Department of Extranormal Phenomena (DEP), Superhuman and Supernatural Threats in the New Millennium:

"The banshee entity called Scream is the most recent member to join the villainous extranormal group known as the Devil's Square.  Her origins are unclear at this time, but her first appearance coincides with a sighting of the group at the Novedian library archives.  DEP has deployed agents to that area, but no evidence as yet has been discovered.

The Scream entity appears to be vampiric in nature, requiring human life essence for continued survival.  Instead of eating blood, eyewitness accounts show her draining that essence directly from her victims in an intimate kiss of death.  This process drains all vital fluids, leaving behind only a dessicated corpse.  To date, no corpses from encounters with the Scream entity have shown indications of pending revivification.  Final analysis on this aspect is still inconclusive as some living dead have the capability of lying dormant for hundreds of years before reanimating.

Eyewitness accounts indicate that the form of the Scream entity is generally vaporous, becoming solid for only brief periods of time to move physical objects or attack opponents.  Although Scream has shown a preference for draining any humans she encounters, if faced with a superior force, she has been known to use her talon like hands to wound or incapacitate her victims.  Her most devastating attack however, is her banshee scream.

Scream can emit a forceful vibratory keening that can shatter glass and in some cases cause combustion in flammable materials.  We have records of those caught in the path of her wail being subject to broken bones, hemorrhaging from bodily orifices, and general internal injury up to and including organ liquification.  In all previous encounters where she has used this wail, those within ten to fifteen feet of her have died immediately.  DEP recommends that any force dispatched against this creature be fitted with the maximum sound protective gear available.

Physical weapons are unable to harm Scream in her vaporous form but she has shown a violent reaction to the presence of crucifixes and other christian paraphernalia.  DEP recommends that any agent on mission against the Devil's Square be equipped with weaponry that has been blessed and consecrated and be given christian indicia to be presented prominently.  Final DEP recommendation is that the Scream entity be captured for containment and study.  This would allow a better understanding of how to deter this particular phenomena in future field operations.  DEP mages and psychics have been assigned to Research and Development to investigate a means of capture and containment."
