CONCEPT BY LANE EDWARDS-BROWN
An unusual morph of the Harlequeen, the Pantomimic is always encountered wandering alone, going to great lengths to evade confrontation with other monsters and especially keep distance from other Jokers. It is calm, slow and purposeful in its movements and absolutely silent, not only incapable of generating sound but significantly dampening sound over a wide area with its colorless, odorless and unusually non-toxic gas. It is capable of manipulating the molecular density of this substance within a meter of its body surface, generating a non-reflective crystalline pseudomatter in any desirable configuration. The material evaporates again in the span of a second, but is momentarily as durable as steel, allowing the monster to generate unseen walls, platforms and even tools or weaponry within roughly forty inches of its skin surface.
Evidence suggests that a Harlequeen can metamorphose into a Pantomimic if it survives the destruction of its original hive or otherwise loses all connection to its own kind. Most appear to roam without purpose or live in self-inflicted isolation, but in the event that their hive was terminated by a known party, a Pantomimic may devote its existence to murderous vengeance.
SILENCE: sound does not function normally within a Pantomimic's miasma.
INVISIMATTER: within a limited range, a Pantomimic can momentarily solidify its gas into any shape, virtually impossible to detect visually.
