The Roving Moon is a strange gigantic creature created by the horror artist Trevor Henderson. This particular creature is a member of an infamous group of creatures known as The Giants, and has a similar goal and behavior to the other creatures in this group, but also has a special ability that allows it to do its task more effectively.
The Roving Moon depicts a massive quadrupedal entity that is taking on a gorilla-walk stance, and appears to only be a mere skeleton comprised of thin bones and ligaments. Only the head of the creature seems to have any actual skin and muscle. The creature can be spotted during nighttime in an unknown neighborhood.
The torso of the creature is nothing but a large spinal column going from the shoulders to a small pelvis, with a number of small ribs protruding from it. The main column portion is actually located more on the front of the body rather than the back, and the ribs are also oriented from front to back, curving inwards. Each side of the column is lined with 10 ribs from top to bottom. On the top end of the torso, there is a clavicle, scapula and another additional bone visible, forming the shoulders.
The limbs of the creature are made of two long, but thin bones which resemble those of a human’s. They have a single joint, connected by tough ligaments and are quite flat at the ends. The lower parts of the limbs are generally longer than the upper parts. Due to the creature’s position, the legs are significantly shorter than the arms and only bend forwards. The arms are much longer in comparison to the legs, and are much more flexible. It is unknown if the creature possesses any hands or feet, as they are being obscured in the image.
Finally, the most notable part of the creature is its head and neck. The neck is the only part of the creature with actual flesh and skin. It is relatively long and very flexible, being able to bend in any direction, suggesting that it does not have any bones in it. The head of the creature is just a single large hole, from which a bright, but non-illuminating light shines. It is presumed that this hole also contains its eyes and other sensory organs.
Due to the circumstances of the image, it is difficult to estimate its height and also the color of its bones. The bones would likely be a darker color, like brown. Based on the image and what we know about other Giants, the height of the creature is likely around 100-300 feet.
Behavior and Origins
While it is not fully confirmed, the creature is most likely a member of an infamous species of creatures known as The Giants, as evident by its impeccable size and the way the caption seems to refer to it in a nonchalant manner, which could reflect the people being used to the presence of The Giants. Assuming this is the case, then it would’ve arrived on Earth from another dimension via a second Moon under the request of the Moon Worshippers, like any other Giant. It would likely fall into the Destruction behavior classification of Giants, based on the fact that it does not have any tendrils to collect and ascend people. It is also a humanoid Giant, and humanoids are almost always Destruction Giants.
Since this possibility is very likely, it is assumed that it likes wanders about in small towns or other kinds of human settlements so that it can destroy it, and kill any nearby people that has been deemed unworthy, and possibly sparing worthy to be collected by other Giants. From the caption and the image, the creature seems to be constantly moving about from one place to another, unlike other Giants, who move slowly and stay in one area for a while.
The creature is presumably a nocturnal hunter, as it would not be able to take advantage of its special ability during daylight. This may imply that the creature requires sleep or rest, which uncommon for Giants, but is not completely unheard of. Whether or not the creature requires any other form sustenance like food and water to survive is still unknown, but it is unlikely that it does since most other Giants do not seek these kinds of necessities, nor do they have the means to consume them.
Besides its massive size, which is an obvious perk of the creature, it’s main ability comes in the form of its large glowing head. The light is bright enough to be easily noticeable, but not bright enough to reflect off of surfaces and illuminate its surroundings. As its name would suggest, this light would be used to disguise itself as the Moon’s light in the sky, making it difficult to spot at night, and possibly even lure in humans. It could also disguise itself as a weak street light, if it bends down low enough.
As for it’s other physical capabilities, it being made almost entirely out of hard, rigid bones would allow it to both deal and take a considerable amount of damage. It would be able to crush or knock down buildings with relative ease. It’s gorilla-like stance would also lend it to be a very fast-moving creature, unlike other Giants, which may have also contributed to its name.
- At the time of writing, the Roving Moon is the latest Giant that Trevor has made, with a long 3-month between it and the image of Bloomer.
- It is the first creature that Trevor has made that is meant to disguise itself as a moon.
- It is the second skeletal Giant that Trevor has made, with the first being Suburbs At Dusk.
- Roving is another term for "moving", which suggests that the creature tends to move around quite a bit.
