Human Beings HATE HIM mysterious Slender Man has found multiple Weird Tricks to Mutilate those He chooses to for use in His own mysterious ends

"facts" about Slender Man (as much as you can have facts on him)

So with this whole focus on a “canon” for Slender Man with people who are into the mythos, what with all of your stupid shitty blogs and your Core Theory

and what with the influx of people interested in Slender Man what with the whole Slender game, I decided we might as well go back to basics and look at some little known and more widely known facets of Slendy that were apparent in the original thread on him

  1. The entity has not always been faceless! Sometimes he’ll appear with no features, sometimes they’ll be blurry or ill defined, sometimes he’ll look somewhat human, sometimes he’ll have glowing eyes. The one constant is that it’s never exactly human.
  2. The entity seems to prefer forests, the dark, and fog but it’s not all he’ll appear in! We’ve seen him during the daytime and in a variety of environments- from cities to building interiors and suburbs. A submarine crew even encountered him- hell, after someone got his dead friends computer, he found a series of screencaps where the entity emerged from his friends WOW game
  3. In much the same way, while the entity seems to prefer children, it’s not the only group he’ll go after- he’s gone after teenagers, adults, and the old.
  4. The entity is not -new,- there have been cave paintings of him, a hieroglyphic of “the dark pharaoh,” woodcuts and stories about “der ritter” and “der grobman” in medieval germany and other countries, etc etc
  5. Adding onto that, we don’t know if there’s just one Slender Man or if he’s just in many places at once. There were apparently “great ones” or “tall ones” that the Native Americans worshipped- what had once thought to be burial mounds for chiefs and the like were apparently for these tall, enigmatic beings…
  6. We don’t know The Slender Man’s origins, but it seems clear he definitely isn’t a human, or of human origins. More like something trying or inadvertently disguising itself as a human but not doing a good job
  7. He doesn’t just have masked men as his proteges [to say nothing of the fact that we don’t know if Masky from MH is serving him], Slender Man often attracts cults and the like- or he’ll just end up hypnotizing whoever he ends up encountering
  8. Sometimes he doesn’t do the killing himself! It seems he’ll hypnotize the person to do it- OR he’ll kill people, and the one survivor will get blamed for it
  9. He doesn’t have a standard appearance! His tallness, his skin color, tie color, how the tentacles appear, the number of them, and the number of hands- all of that seems to vary from encounter to encounter. And often, his appearance changes more and more in a single encounter, as he gets more and more inhuman
  10. Sometimes Slender Man doesn’t just stalk, and cause sickness and madness- he WILL kill, and seems to have a habit of stringing the bodies of his victims high up into trees, and sometimes hanging up bags full of their organs as well. God knows why.
  11. We don’t know how he works. We don’t know if he likes or dislikes being seen, if seeing him in other works summons him, if you’re hypnotized right when you look at him, it seems to vary based on who you asked
  12. Sometimes, he’ll speak- almost always telepathically. How his voice sounds varies from person to person. Sometimes, you’ll also hear childrens voices in the fog he appears in.
  13. That’s the main thing about him- everything is variable and everything changes.

An idea about behaviour

In reading this thread, I’m struck by one behaviour of Der Ritter in particular, that of its impaling its victims in a tree, while removing and reinserting their internal organs. It’s remarkably akin to the feeding habits of shrikes, also known as butcherbirds.

See, what a shrike will do is capture a smaller animal - anything from a cricket to a smaller bird or mouse - and kill it. Shrikes are songbirds, and their musculature is pretty lacking compared to a straight-up raptor like a hawk or owl, so their kill is messy and inefficient, consisting of many pecks and bites to the head and neck. This continues until the prey animal is either dead or too tired to fight. But that’s not the worst part. The worst part is that as weak as their jaws are, their claws are weaker, and they wholly lack talons. They’re built to perch. So, what a shrike will do, is it will take its prey to a thorny tree, or bush, or even barbed wire, and it will ram its prey down on a spike so that it won’t move when the shrike tears it apart.

It’s a songbird that’s learned to kill, and it does so far more cruelly than any raptor.

Anyone ever hear the Slender Man sing?

  • Search for missing family continues
    by Martin Phillips - 8/19/77

    The search continues for a missing family who vanished from their campsite in the Ozark National Forest two weeks ago. According to neighbors, Martin and Virginia Daniels, along with their children John and Jolene, left their home in Little Rock early on Saturday, Aug. 6, in their van packed with camping equipment. One of Mr. Daniels’s co-workers told police the family was going on their annual summer vacation to the National Forest, and had planned to spend four nights before returning late on the next Wednesday. When Mr. Daniels failed to return to work on Aug. 15, the police were sent to investigate, but found an empty house.

    In the course of the investigation, police determined where the family had camped, and discovered the site with all the equipment still there, along with the family’s van. Both U.S. Forest Service rangers and State Police reported no signs of a struggle, with one ranger stating it was “like they just up and flew away.” Rangers, police, and volunteers soon formed search teams, but after two weeks of air and land searches, hope is fading of finding the Daniels family alive.

    Police sources have reported that a camera was found with several pictures taken, and they are being developed.
  • Missing family case takes strange turn
    by Martin Phillips - 9/4/77

    The case of the missing Daniels family has taken a strange turn, according to police sources. {recap of case removed}

    According to sources with the State Police, shortly after getting the photos from the Daniels’s camera developed, agents from the FBI arrived and took over the case. The State Police have been “shut out of the whole thing,” according to one source. Neither the FBI nor official State Police spokesmen returned our calls for comment.

    However, we have received the photo accompanying this article anonymously, which included a note stating it is from the film in the Daniels’s camera, found at their campsite in the National Forest. According to the note, it was taken by a man from a nearby campsite, who appeared in two other photos. Friends and neighbors of the Daniels family have confirmed the picture is of them, and the note says the man is being sought as a possible witness.

  • Witness to family disappearance reported missing
    by Martin Phillips - 9/12/77

    Days after a possible witness to the vanishing of the Daniels family was interviewed by the FBI, he has been reported missing by his girlfriend. Cheryl Adams told Russellville police on Sept. 9 that her boyfriend, Travis Grady, hadn’t come home from work the night before. Police found his car the next day in Atkins, with a dead battery and out of gas, but Mr. Grady still has not been found.

    {recap of case removed}

    According to Ms. Adams, after seeing the picture of the Daniels family published in the Gazette, Mr. Grady told her that he had seen the family the day they arrived, but hadn’t seen anything unusual before he left a few hours later. He admitted to taking the picture, and Ms. Adams convinced him to talk to the police. After calling the Russellville police, two officers arrived and took a statement. The next day, two FBI agents arrived and interviewed Mr. Grady for several hours, according to Ms. Adams, who says she was forced to leave during the interview.

    Police are still looking for Travis Grady.
  • Over three years later, bodies of missing family, witness found
    by Harry Mason - 2/8/81

    Nearly three and a half years after their disappearance from a campsite in the Ozark National Forest, the bodies of Michael and Virginia Daniels, as well as possible witness Travis Grady, have been found over 1,000 miles away in the Yellowstone National Park. {recap of case removed}

    According to a witness who found the bodies, they were impaled through the chest on branches near the tops of trees, and appeared to have been cut open down the front of the torso. The witness also stated that what looked like organs were found sealed in plastic at the base of each tree. “The weirdest thing was that they looked fresh, like they’d just died a few days ago,” he said. “How in the name of God they got up there, I’ll never know,” he added.

    Neither the US Park Service nor the FBI would confirm these reports, other than to say the bodies had been recovered and sent for autopsy. The Daniels children, John and Jolene, were not found with their parents or anywhere nearby, according to sources with the FBI, and are still considered missing.
