The God Of Roadkill is a strange, grotesque creature made by Trevor Henderson.
Estimated to be the size of a van or larger, the God of Roadkill possesses many unnatural attributes. Its head is shaped like a bird, with a long, thin beak ending into a needle like point. Located on the upper portion of its head are four eyes, all of which appear to crudely drawn. The creature’s body is devoid of any flesh, instead being composed of thin, red bones that form a skeletal structure similar to the upper half of a human skeleton. However, the creature’s neck is far longer than a human’s would be and its humerus is also unnaturally long. The creature’s lower half is missing and it seemingly relies on its arms to prop itself up onto its spine.
In the photo the God of Road’s pose suggests that it relies on its arms for basic methods of transportation, including walking, crawling and running. In one sketch depicting the creature, stitches running from its head to neck suggest that its head is, in fact, a mask. This may be a suitable explanation for why the creature’s eyes appear to be drawn on.
The true purpose of the God of Roadkill’s existence is currently unknown. What is known is that people who encounter the creature while driving will crash soon after through unknown means. Owing to the fact that none have survived an encounter with the creature so far, it is assumed that the victim, if not killed by the crash, is killed by the creature. Since it is not known how it appears on the road, it is presumable that it arrives via teleportation or just by simply “walking” to the scene. A pattern in its victims, however, has shown that it appears to target people who have killed animals by running them over or by blunt force of a car ram, whether accidentally or on purpose. Owing to this information, it may be assumed that the God of Roadkill is somewhat benevolent, only targeting those who have killed animals.
- It’s appearance and title as a “God” makes it seem that he is based on Ancient Egyptian Gods, who were also usually depicted as humanoids with animal heads or masks.
- It is the first creature by Trevor Henderson that is officially called a “God”.
- It’s drawn-on eyes resemble that of the Mannequins and The Cultists’
- Trevor has once stated that it is always sad and angry, presumably because of the constant cases of roadkill around the world.
- Some have speculated that it’s way of movement (Grinding and pulling itself on the pavement) represents the death of the small animals killed in roadkill.
- The background for the original image was also used for Mr.Mascot’s image.
