Description and Behavior: Mr. and Mrs. Happy-Stab, also known as just ‘Happy-Stab’, is the resultant anomalous entity brought about by the union of two separate entities. The first is an anomalous robot designed and created by Dr. James Sout called the Helpful and Personable Partner for You (HaPPY simplified to Happy). Happy was originally designed to be a humanoid ‘helper-bot’ before Dr. Sout somehow rendered it anomalous, allowing it to achieve physical and computational feats beyond what it should be capable of. When Dr. Sout ordered Happy to bring happiness to the world it immediately destroyed all records in the laboratory and sought out the second component of its current form. Dr. Sout is currently missing and presumed deceased.
The second entity that makes up Happy-Stab is the Dagger of Ecstasy. This dagger was reportedly the same one used by the jester Maria Stab to slay King Rex after telling him a joke so good that he would not stop laughing despite her growing frustration. After killing the King, Maria Stab was then cursed to become one with the dagger which now would put anyone who is stabbed with it into an ecstatic state until death. It is unknown how literal or accurate this story is. What is known is that Happy immediately sought out the Dagger of Ecstasy after being told to bring happiness to the world and then developed a relationship with it.
The current entity of Happy-Stab occurred months after the initial acquisition of the Dagger of Ecstasy by Happy. Survivors of encounters with Happy note that Happy and the dagger would frequently converse with each other. Over time, the conversations became more affectionate with both entities referring to the other with pet names. Eventually Happy permanently incorporated the dagger into its right arm and the entities declared themselves ‘married’, Mr. and Mrs. Happy-Stab. As they are permanently combined, they are now considered a singular entity. Physically this entity is in a constant process of self modification in the pursuit of more effective predation and so lacks a consistent description beyond having a ‘smiley face’ head and the dagger fused to its arm. It has been recorded to have been as small as four feet (1.2 meters) tall to as tall as twelve feet (3.7 meters) in various encounters.
Mr. and Mrs. Happy-Stab as an entity has the motivation of bringing happiness to the world, which it aims to achieve by stabbing any unhappy people with the Dagger of Ecstasy. The stabbings are usually fatal; though if a victim does manage to survive, they will have an inability to experience negative emotions such as anger or fear. Happy-Stab will often converse with itself about the situation, often with the two components of the entity expressing different opinions. The Happy component seems significantly less willing to undertake violence, usually willing to take victims at their word as to their emotional state.
Recommended Actions: Mr. and Mrs. Happy-Stab is significantly faster and stronger than any human. It is therefore recommended that if this entity is encountered the most viable means of survival is to convince it of your positive emotional state. Any attempts at escape or self-defence will be treated as signs of unhappiness.
