The Komanche Horse, also called the Devouring Horse, Consumer of Men, and It Which Pounds Into Dust, is a hideous and unbelievable creature. A malign deity from the Outer World, it descended to the Earth and cast its dark net over men the world over.
There are many depictions of the demonic deity. Most commonly, the Horse is depicted as a withered and skeletal human corpse topped with the shriveled skull of a horse. Typically, those who paint the Horse use bright, clashing, vaguely disturbing shades- the glowing white-green of rotting gangrenous flesh, the virulent pink of an infected wound, the yellow-beige of bleached bones, the lustrous red-brown of a heavy bloodstain. Nearly as often, the Komanche Horse’s presence is represented by the hollow and skeletal corpse of a horse, or better yet, one whose skin has mummified like parchment around its dry bones.
