Re: Well...

Noted!

He's all white, actually, the color of freshly burned ash.
That's not what I imagined at all. Next you'll tell me he doesn't wear a hat, either. Humanoid?

That's okay. Monsters don't necessarily appear the same way to everyone.

... sometimes?

>> Humanoid?<<

Humanoid, yes: one head, two arms, two legs, mostly human shape. He does have those sharklike teeth, though.

Apparently not. I'm not sure if anything'd been mentioned before that would've prompted or contradicted my notion of him as dark/shadow colored.

Head, torso, two arms, two legs which it walks on, arranged in roughly the human layout is about all I expect for "humanoid". Doesn't have to pass for human to someone who's actually *looking*.

I think his pale coloring has been mentioned once or twice before, but not in so much detail. He does rather play against the stereotype; I think that's part of his charm. And we do have the lurking shadow to cover the far end of the spectrum.

>>Doesn't have to pass for human to someone who's actually *looking*.<<

True, and there seem to be a few humans who can see through the glamour.
