|Description||Often wears tie-dye and masks its stench with patchouli.|
Sometimes asserted to be the corporeal half of the Ungrateful Dead, the 'Peace Corpse (Necromis pacificus) is the sworn enemy of the Godville Intelligence Agency.
Most people don't remember the Godville Intelligence Agency's unsuccessful Operation Summer Garland, the role it had in the recruitment of youthful residents of Vector Field, the many bureaucratic scraps it has had with the Godville Diplomatic Corps, or that undeclared safe house in Los Demonos that got blown wide open, but the Peace Corpse remembers. The Peace Corpse always remembers. It remembers, and is a militantly conscientious objector.
A Peace Corpse usually has the aspect of a strong, lanky, waspish, undead creature. Since it usually has a preference for tye-died or plaid flannel rags, sometimes has stickers of dancing teddy bears, and tends to whiff of patchouli and rot, many cryptozoologists believe it to be the corporeal remains of a creature that has spectrally become one of the Ungrateful Dead. That is where the similarities appear to end, however, as the Peace Corpse is undeniably service-oriented.
Water and water-related health issues are the way to the Peace Corpse's unbeating heart. Residents of underserved territories like Vector Field often find these monsters digging wells or clearing culverts and ditches. A roaming gang of them has been known to-- surreptitiously and nocternally-- fix a house's plumbing and septic field. One was discovered to be hand-pumping water for an entire school, and investigation showed that the previous pumping mechanism had been broken for a long time. As a result of this devotion to running and clean water, Peace Corpse tend to carry a canister of chlorine salts for the killing of any protist life forms.
This canister is a deadly weapon.
One thing that always gives the presence of the Godville Intelligence Agency away, is its use of the local water system. Whether tapping into sewers or boring secret wells, the Agency always uses and must dispose of a lot of water. When recruiting and training youthful volunteers for an incursion in the Qu'tox Ocean, the Agency needed to provide water and toileting for 187 recruits. The secret well lowered the regional water table below what most residents could reach, and a leaking retention pond allowed raw sewage to enter the groundwater.
(More to come.)
- The attentive observer will note that this love of running water is in direct opposition to beliefs and observations of most undead creatures. Cryptozoologists have no comment at this time.
