I Am Providence
Night Gaunts are essentially nightmares. They live on and create fear though their influence is normally unseen and minimal. There has only been one other case in history in which they acted as parasites. Very little is written on this case except that it was believed that dark rituals were invoked to shift the Night Gaunts into living, feeding parasites. Victims skulls were drilled into and the Night Gaunt placed inside of their head.
If a Night Gaunt is killed by regular means, it kills the host as well. The only way to destroy a Night Gaunt without killing the host is to: 1. Create a potion with the following ingredients: hair freely given from the Lady of Autumn, witchwood (heart of most ancient trees – normally contain a Dryad), and tears from the Lady of Spring placed in a diamond vial by her own hands and feed it to the host 2. Feed the Host Red Court vampire venom. Though, this will render the host addicted, it kills the parasite within.
Night Gaunts appear to cause fear in those they come in contact with as witnessed from the psychic attack on Elizabeth McNeilly as she attempted to remove the creature from William Sibley’s head.
