The Moosquito (Aedes alces) is a monster and scourge of Godville's back woods.

Origin

Long ago, there was a devious enchantress. In her pursuit of power, she discovered an ancient magic called "moving stuff away," that she rebranded as "teleportation" for practical reasons. She invented a device to move creatures from one room to another, and the first test subject was a poor, clueless moose that happened to be grazing near her hideout. The test was going well, the moose was strapped down, the runes tuned properly, and the staff perfectly shaped. But then a mosquito came. By the time the enchantress realized that the little bug was feasting on the teleporting, animal it was too late. The two creatures disappeared in a blueish haze, and heavy grunts began to emanate from the next room.

The moosequito was born, driven by a violent urge to feed on the human who had merged the two into such an abhorrent beast. A slim black needle the size of a broom started to poke the enchantress's iron door, the rivets falling one by one, piling at her feet. The monster broke free and started chasing the women into the woods. His black legs filled with long spiky hair treaded mercilessly on the trunks and paths until he reached the mark. The Moosequito nailed her against an old pine, he left a dry carcass and rushed into the wilderness, looking for more humans, more blood.
