Description

Entity 18, colloquially known as "Appreciators" are entities unique to Level 18. They're identified by their heads being replaced by a paint palette with one single eye, the iris color varying from Appreciator to Appreciator. They usually don't pose any threat to wanderers, practicing physical contact with the Appreciators is unadvised.

Behaviors

It roams Level 18 with no apparent final destination, it appears to have full knowledge about the current layout of Level 18. It roams the level for one minute to one hour freely, without any previous notice it will start staring at an art piece exposure in Level 18, hence the name, Appreciator; it will stare at the art piece from a period of time ranging from 15 seconds to 1 hour.

Touching an Appreciator with any part of the body is highly unadvised, as it has an unconscious stimulus against human touch at any capacity; upon touching an Appreciator, the hallucinations inside Level 18 strengthens significantly permanently until the wanderer exits the level.

Apart from the abnormal reaction to the human touch, an Appreciator doesn't pose any significant threat to biological or artificial matter. More analysis of an Appreciator's reaction to being touched by a sample of living matter from different species is underway.

Biology

The Appreciator is a pitch-black humanoid creature with an average height of five feet and eleven inches. Appreciators can be of varying builds, which include fit, obese, slim, short, tall, or other variations. Its head has been replaced by a paint palette, a tool commonly used by artists. It has one eye in the center of the paint palette.

These entities consist of a non-biological material, identified as black matte plastic. When hurt by bullets or blunt weapons the damaged region will start regenerating up to five minutes after being damaged. Depending on the size of the area that was hurt, regenerating will take between ten seconds to fifteen minutes.

Note that the paint holder has been found to be composed of normal oak wood. When damaged, it will not regenerate back.

Discovery

The Appreciators were discovered along with Level 18 since they're immediately present when entering the level. After discovery, multiple analyses have been made leading to the publishing of this article; more analyses are underway.


Survival Guide

Appreciators pose no significant threat to biological life, although, touching an Appreciator is not recommended as it strengthens the hallucinations. No further dangers posed by the Appreciators have been found.
