Cheshires

Entity Number: 26

Habitat - Majority of Levels

Description

Cheshires resemble common household cats in both appearance and behaviour. However, Cheshires are evolved for survival in the Backrooms and sport extraordinary contracting color pigments along the follicles of their fur. This allows them to manipulate their color and shape – camouflaging expertly to hide from the dangers of numerous levels. Paired with the natural heightened senses of cats in general, Cheshires are keen and hardy survivors.

Behaviours

Due to their prowess and stealth you will likely never see a wild Cheshire in Limspace; they attempt to maintain a complete colour blend with their surroundings at all times. However Cheshires near human settlements have been known to self domesticate, and in this way we have been able to study their unique ecology. Food is obviously a scarce resource in the Backrooms and regardless of how careful and aloof a cat may be they are still opportunists by nature. You can befriend a Cheshire with a few simple treats and a good amount of time. They make for great companions, sentries, and pest control in much the same way a Baseline feline would. If you have tamed one it is recommended to collar your Cheshire. Otherwise due to its color changing pigment and camouflage it will be difficult to keep track of.

Cheshires make for excellent pest control. In settlements they have been found eating mice, spiders, all types of insects and even small undocumented entities.
Interestingly enough, Cheshires have been labelled as good luck charms. Some UNCB members have claimed that the presence of a cat will defend you from Entity mental attacks and - occasionally - make Entities fearful to approach you entirely. These claims are rumors only and should not be considered a reliable means of defense.

Biology

Cheshire meat is safe to consume. Cheshire litters are commonly around half a dozen. The average size of a Cheshire is 10lb's, slightly smaller than a regular household cat.

If you closely inspect a Cheshire you will notice they actually have four eyes: two regular eyes and two smaller milky eyes above the first set and closer to their ears. The second pair allow them to see in pure darkness in a wider field of view, making them hyper aware of danger from nearly any angle.

Discovery

Cheshires do not have a recorded point of discovery, but have self domesticated across numerous outposts and settlements.


Do's and Don'ts

Do's:

  • Allow Cheshires to settle in your outposts. They control pests and may even defend from Entities.
  • Collar your tamed Cheshires to keep track of them.

Dont's:

  • None. Cheshires are small and passive Entities. They pose no harm to humans.
