Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Detect life is overpowered. Fresh Food is vague. Teleport is overpowerd. Blindsight is overpowered. Dark tendrils is overpowered. So there's that.

Recycle.png This page was proposed for deletion on 17:22, 7 November 2017 (MST) because: this is a monster if anything. Races simply cannot have features like blindssight and detect life. In addition, this is a blatant ripoff of slender man rather then an inspired work. The rest is in the needsbalance stub. (discuss).

Son, never go into the forest at night, my boy. That's where the monster lives, the tall man with no eyes, do as you are told or he will come and take you away as you, be a good boy, or the Slenderman will come for you.
—Farnaf Rynal, gnome peasant

Little is known about when or where the first Slender came from. Some believe they are a strange hybrid of creatures and devils that came from one the nine hell's, others believe the first Slender came from the night mares of a child whom sadly passed one cold, dark night, and some even say they are the end result of changelings and Doppelgangers who have long since forgotten what there own faces really look like.
