|~ What appears to be a cut-off news report on the creature’s sightings|
The Storm Warning Entity, (also previously known as the Water Tower Stander) is a creature made by artist Trevor Henderson. Its ability to fly, induce storms and conjure lightning strikes make it a force to be reckoned with, definitely moreso than other monsters.
The Creature depicted in the image is a tall, dark humanoid creature that appears to be standing on a water tower, observing. It has long arms that have hands ending in clawed fingers and on the side of its body are large, bat-like wings, which appear to be damaged with tears. It’s legs appear to be shorter than it’s arms due to it having a long torso.
It has yellow glowing eyes and the rest of it’s facial features are not visible. According to the caption, it is bird-like in appearance, which would explain the wings and lack of ears and nose. The creature’s entire body is covered with black skin/fur/feathers.
Comparing it to the size of the water tower it is standing on, we can estimate the creature to be about 20 Feet or 6.09 Meters, and has an estimated wingspan of about 23 Feet or 7.01 Meters.
Behavior and Origins
The creature, as shown through the caption and the image, seems to be a malevolent and intelligent being. It is currently unknown which group of creatures this entity belongs in, if any.
Giants Theory (Unlikely)
Due to the creature’s nature of appear during storms and it’s somewhat large size, we can assume that it is a member of The Giants, the same Giants that came to Earth by the summoning of a second Moon. If this is the case, it would be most likely a non-collection Giant, meaning that it only kills unworthy humans and causes destruction instead of ascending the worthy, however, it may still be able to ascend nice humans by flying them into the Heavens. If it is a member of The Giants, it is very likely to be an Element Giant, like Fire Giant. This theory rather unlikely though, given that the creature is only 20 feet tall, much shorter than all of the other actual Giants. This theory is also practically debunked due to the next theory below:
A more likely answer is that it is not a member of The Giants. This is backed up by the fact that it, and The Giants are listed separately in Trevor’s Canon Creatures List, suggesting that they are not related. It may to be related to the Mothman, as it has long bat-like wings and glowing eyes much like the aforementioned cryptid, though Mothman himself is not actually listed as a canon creature. This leaves the Storm Warning Entity as a standalone cryptid that has no connections to other monsters.
Aside form it’s massive size and sharp, deadly claws, it is also implied that the creature has some form of control over lightning and thunder strikes, as it directs the lightning to it’s feet and may also absorb energy from it. The caption of the image states that there were multiple reports of lightning strikes in the area it was spotted in. It is also unknown if it has full control of where it happens, or if the strikes just happen when it is around.
It’s size may not be as large and destructive as other monsters, however it can use this to it’s advantage, letting it fit into smaller spaces, as well as using it’s wing to fly swiftly without weight issues. It’s large eyes may also allow it to have vision beyond that of a human's, able to see in different modes of light. All of these abilities combined allows it to utilize it’s powerful lightning strike manifestations more precisely, making it an extremely dangerous creature, possibly even more than some the Giants.
- There is only one confirmed image of this creature so far, however there exists a second image of a similar creature that Trevor created in May 2019, where it was shown alongside Breaking News and Body Worm.
- It's likely that the creature in the image is a different creature from the Storm Warning Entity, as that is confirmed to be a member of the Giants, while the Storm Warning Entity is likely not a member of such group.
- The caption of the image shows a cut-off dialogue, similarly to a few other captions.
- It is seemingly the first elemental creature that Trevor Henderson has drawn, predating the Fire Giant.
- The name “Water Tower Stander” is a fan-given name and should NOT be used when referring to this creature.
- It may be related to or inspired by Mothman.
