AMI11: Evil Rubber Ducks

Location: Various sewer systems around the world.

Status: Active.

Description and Behavior: Evil Rubber Ducks are an anomalous species of semiaquatic mollusks that closely resemble a rubber duck with a goatee. They have a tough and thick skin that feels like rubber, protecting them from their harsh environment in the sewers and making them nearly impossible to kill. While floating they use their foot to maneuver through water and can also use the foot to traverse solid surfaces. Their diet largely consists of insects, small rodents, and nutrients scavenged from human waste.

Usually they offer little danger to those that encounter them in the sewers. They are relatively docile if left untouched and usually either hide or remain motionless if humans are near. If they are picked up, they will attempt to sting the person, which causes paralysis and permanent nerve damage. This very rarely happens as most people aren’t inclined to pick up objects in the sewers.

It is during the reproductive phase that these entities can become dangerous. A pair of these Evil Rubber Ducks will make their way to the surface, usually through a toilet. Once in a bathroom with a bath the pair will wait motionlessly until a human being starts taking a bath. It is then that one of the Evil Rubber Ducks will sneak up on the person and inject paralyzing venom with a stinger hidden in its ‘mouth’. Once the victim is paralyzed the pair will enter the tub and make holes in the skin of the person, laying incubated eggs into these holes. Evil Rubber Ducks are hermaphroditic and can lay anywhere from a hundred to three hundred eggs each. The eggs hatch within the hour and the baby Evil Rubber Ducks start eating the victim alive, usually having the entire body devoured within four hours of hatching. The adults will remove the bathtub drain cap after feeding has ended, whether to conclusion or by intervention, allowing the babies to escape to the sewer. The adults then die.

Recommended Actions: It is important to always thoroughly check your bathroom before taking a bath. Always make sure the toilet lid is always closed when not in used to ensure that no entry can take place. If you do notice any Evil Rubber Ducks, do your best to try to drive them away back into the sewers. This is best achieved with chemicals and shows of force. If you can get at least one into the toilet the other is sure to follow.

IMI2: The Blood Angel Cult

Location: North America and Parts of Europe.

Status: Active.

Description and Behavior: The Blood Angel Cult is an anti-theistic cult with a strong paramilitary and counterculture tradition, comprised of at least forty-nine cells varying in size. They revere a being known as the “Blood Angel”. This Blood Angel is, according to the cult’s literature, a fallen angel that remains loyal to God and desperately desires readmittance into Heaven. He seeks this by means of radical penance, apparently having removed most of his own skin through self-flagellation. The Blood Angel is said to kind, generous, and protective of the weak. We here at PRAE have yet to be able to verify his existence.

It is the desire of the Blood Angel Cult to convince the Blood Angel that continued unrequited loyalty to God is “folly” by using arguments developed by cult members. Depending on the cell or individual, they wish either to be led by the Blood Angel or otherwise bring him into their organization. In addition to this, the various cells often pursue the acquisition of anomalous objects and often interfere with our researchers, sometimes leading to death.

This cult carries out most of its activities on the outskirts of various cities and towns, preferring municipalities with a high rate of property abandonment. Most members are recruited from various local anarchist, communist, and other counterculture groups. They usually have an emblem resembling a bleeding angel either on their clothing or as a tattoo, their decentralized nature means the aesthetic of this emblem can vary wildly. Their paramilitary and often radical nature often make them a danger for the communities they inhabit.

Recommended actions: It is best to deal with the Blood Angel Cult as a community effort. Establish neighborhood watches and contact police whenever possible against possible cult activity, or the activity of the counterculture movements they recruit from. It highly likely that cult members will claim that PRAE kidnaps, tortures, experiment with, and kill their members. We assure you that this is false.
