RHOST - Boo Man of Devouring


"I made your favorite! Huh? Well, it will be. Promise."

Offering their services as assassins, bounty hunters, security guards and even personal battle-monsters, the Boo Men are elite mercenary bioconstructs of uncertain origins, each sharing a single core mind and personality across its many replicants or "incarnations."

Rhost, the dancing gourmand, is a fun-loving and simple-minded but highly skilled Boo Man, capable of consuming virtually any material and reconstituting it into new forms.


The interior of Rhost's body houses all the equipment standard to a portable kitchen, including mechanisms for grinding, mixing, liquefying, freezing, dehydrating, rehydrating, baking, frying, steaming, boiling and irradiating organic materials. A master of the culinary arts, Rhost can swallow an adversary whole and produce a series of cakes, pies, sausages and soups from a single body within mere minutes.

Though Rhost's creations are widely considered delicious on their own, his body can also produce a highly enticing, addictive and slightly psychotropic chemical blend he refers to as his "special sauce." Even a small dose is seemingly impossible for most beings to resist ingesting, and larger concentrations can be maddeningly irresistible. Rhost can lure an army into the most obvious of death traps with a trail of fresh pasta, turn dear friends against one another over the last bite of a donut or simply leave an adversary alone with a mountain of pizza, doomed to eat themselves into a coma even as they curse his name.

Rhost's soft, rubbery body can expand to several times its original dimensions, allowing him to swallow seemingly far larger creatures.


Rhost has never been known to express any mood other than delight and enthusiasm, even finding great humor in his own failures and defeats. He constistently refers to and treats all other creatures as "children," and believes the right meal can solve virtually any problem.

Rhost does not eat his own culinary creations, as he considers them his "waste."


ENGULF: Rhost's stretchy body can widen to swallow almost any object.

FOOD PROCESSOR: Rhost's entire body is an elaborate system for food preparation. Many opponents can be defeated simply through ingestion, dismemberment and immolation within his oven-like interior.

SPECIAL SAUCE: Rhost's special sauce can make any object irresistible to consumption.
