The Skullzters

A Skullzter is a monster creature from another dimension called Therza.

A Skullzter is a deceased animal’s soul from our world that found it’s way to the Skullzter realm where it is reincarnated into a Skullzter monster. Their skull remains as it once was of the animal that died. The body are a shadow mass extending from the skull forming a long furry body with slender arms and a curly tail. A Skullzter’s body is an image of of how the original creator of the realm of Therza looks like.

Realm of Therza

Therza is the name of the realm wich skullzters inhabit and also the name of one of four sister monster guardians.

Once the humans started to occupy the world, the third sister Therza got concerned. She could only see destruction when looking at the human race. After witnessing the animal sacrifices in ancient egypt, also called “the dark secret”. Her fear for humans grew so strong she ripped herself loose from the bond with her other sisters, so she could create her own world and save the sacreficed animal’s souls. Therza soon realized she can never return to her sisters and blamed the humans for her fate.

The Skullzter’s realm look like an exact copy of our world but without anything living in it, no animals, no humans, only Skullzters and some plant life. It’s a realm between life and death. The lands of this dimensional realm are rotten and faded like a neverending autumn. There is no sun but it’s still quite bright from the light reflecting back from our dimension. A smell of rain is always present but it never rains. Our world and the world of the Skullzters are almost on top of each other, allowing the Skullzters to travel between the two worlds.

The realm is hidden and hard to find for souls. Not many souls find their way into to it.

Relationships & Behaviour

Skullzters do not breed but they can develop a strong bond with each other similar to sisters, brothers, parents, lovers. A Skullzter can’t lay eggs or give birth. There are no Skullzter babies. Instead a Skullzter is “born” when a soul of an animal from our world dies and find it’s way to the realm of Skullzters.

Their behaviour are somewhat based upon what kind of animal it was in its earlier life. Most of them are very gentle in their nature and like to take care of each other. They might look scary with their skull and long fingers but they can still be really silly and cuddly.

Skullzters are omnivores but they don’t really have to eat at all.

Fashion

Skullzters loves everything that glimmers like gold and jewels but also anything else that are shiny enough. Because their realm is so gloomy and barren they can go bananas over a piece of shiny candy wrapper. Most of the things they find are forgotten or worthless things in our world they find in trash bins or that somebody dropped. But sometimes Skullzters can steal things they find too irresistible.

Some Skullzters sometimes use accessories they create themselves. Rings in ears and necklaces are very common and loops and jewellery on their tails and arms. A Skullzter can give someone they care about small shiny things and jewellery as gifts to symbolise friendship or companionship.
