Rhizoma is a Latin word for a certain root. the Rhizoma is a mute creature that can be found at the edge of dense forests watching the sunset. once the sun sets it lurks the dark forests unseen searching for blood. the Rhizoma mostly stands still and lifeless like a tree until you turn your back. when it gets close enough it uses its roots to grow into your skin and deep into your veins and absorb your fluids from the inside out. no one has ever spotted the Rhizoma during the morning. it is believed that it burrows and divides into the ground as ordinary roots during the morning and waits for sunset to reform. there have been stories however of this creature sneaking into unsuspecting peoples houses near the woods and absorbing small children in their sleep leaving only their clothes behind on their beds. the motive behind this creature's actions is unknown but it is known to be very dangerous.
