Body-stealing dream creature.
In its natural state, Chthyra is a large shadowy figure with multiple eyes and an enormous maw. However, it is rarely seen in this form outside of its labyrinthine home in the Dream Realms (a surreal dimension which penetrates and overlaps that of Earth Prime and the Near-Dimensions). When Chthyra is encountered in one of these terrestrial realms, it is normally occupying the body of a sleeper whose mind it has devoured. It tends to prefer the bodies of teenage girls for this purpose, for reasons which are better left unexplored.
Chthyra's appearances in Earth Prime are usually accompanied by outbreaks of violent dementia and mass hysteria. Chthyra was invited to join the Circle Of Eight after repeatedly coming into conflict with Amon Obel.
