Glow Leach


A life form that emits bright light while feeding.

Full Description
The Glow Leach is a creature that looks more like a cockroach shell than a leech. It has a hard, smooth shell of a translucent black color when dormant. This shell can be handled safely with no danger. The Glow Leach becomes active when the concave part of the shell is pressed against a living creature.

While dormant, the Glow Leach usually has small lights, fainter than embers, closer to starlights, playing under its shell\‘s surface. It uses these lights to communicate with other Glow Leeches. They are social creatures, and if a Glow Leach is seperated from other Glow Leaches for more than 5 days, it will sicken and die.

They reproduce when they encounter another life form. If the Glow Leach\‘s concave surface, it\‘s \‘mouth\’ is placed on a living creature, it will begin to draw the creature\‘s life force from it to begin to reproduce. While feeding, the Glow Leech emits a bright light that attracts other Glow Leeches. No other known light, magical or natural will attract Glow Leeches. For every extra Glow Leech that joins with the first feeder, the number of motes increases expodentially.

That means only 1 glow leech will produce 2^1 leeches, 2 will produce 2^2 or 4 leeches, 3 will make 2^3 or eight leeches and so on.

The motes act more like spores and are cast off as the conflaguration of Glow Leeches finishes consuming the life force of the creature. The original Glow Leeches are destroyed in this reproduction. The motes float down, glowing like falling embers, and take root and begin to form a new shell. Motes mature into Glow Leeches after 3 months.

Magical Properties:

Glows as bright as sunlight for the radius of a torch. If a creature is harmed by naturally made light, rather than the usual \‘pure\’ sunlight, this light will harm said creature.

I assume the host/victim is harmed somewhat while being fed upon? How do these creatures move on their own? Could you explain more what you mean by they are social?

I think glowing would be a problem since it would be much easier to detect and remove them.

This one needs a lot of work!

How about leeches that make the victim glow instead, after the leech enzymes mingle with the blood. All of the swamp's deadly creatures just wait to spot the glowing adventurers.

The old clock tower stands tall, but the bulk of the uppermost storey is crumbling and unsafe, with gaping cracks in the walls. The metal struts and girders supporting the great bronze bells are still intact, though, and the bells survive. The grotesque gargoyles and arabesques which decorated the original design have either fallen into the street (once or twice a year more bricks fall from the tower, prompting calls for its demolition) or have been defaced, but the main doors to the clock tower are still intact and show signs of being kept in working order. This is the home of The Captains, clad in raggedy clothes, with sooty faces, and perpetually runny noses. But behind each set of eyes is the look of a survivor. They live to stick together and make it through each day. Older than their years in many ways, the friendship they share with each other and Wims ghost keeps the core of a childs innocence and hope alive in each. But they are still very suspicious of outsiders. They are a group of street children who live in the clock tower. Some are orphans, some runaways, and some nomads who occasionally return to their homes. But they’re all poor, dirty and perpetually hungry, as well as being wily, unscrupulous and mischievous in a fairly brutal way. Enough of them have suffered at the hands of adults for all of them to be wary of any grown-ups, particularly ones who ask too many questions, although with hard work and a lot of food it might be possible to win the confidence or even the trust of a few of them.
