The Nightmare Carriage by Pyramiddhead The Nightmare Carriage by Pyramiddhead

 This is artwork for a monster profile for the first demon encountered in my series “Blackhaven Institution” below is written some background information and origins of “The Nightmare Carriage”:

    On the day Blackhaven was consumed by flames, pure chaos along with distressing panic filled its hallways as the staff and children desperately looked for anyway to escape. During this madness children and staff where running between the wings of the building in panic choking on smoke and succumbing to the blaze. This demon was once an infant in the nursery wing at the time of the fire,put into a carriage before the fire erupted little Henry was put into a carriage along with three other babies who's fond nurses where going to take them on a stroll around the grounds that day. Pushing little Henry through the doors leading to the stairwell where the elevator was,his nurse Mildred was instantly distracted by the smell of smoke and a rise in temperature. She soon heard the cries of children and staff running around yelling 'Fire!!!”. Mildred panicked as she left Henry in his carriage while she ran back to where she came from to search for and rescue any children that may have been left behind. Left in his crib Henry was distressed by the situation, he spit out his pacifier and began to cry loudly. His cries were muffled by the sounds of chaos all around. Institution staff ran past him holding other children. The fire was getting dangerously closer to Henry, frightened he soiled himself and struggled to get out of the carriage. Suddenly through the doors came Mildred who was completely set ablaze. Shrieking in pain the fire blinded her and she stumbled around the room,accidentally crashing into Henry's carriage. The carriage began to swiftly roll towards the stairs as Mildred collapsed down in flames...The carriage rolled,tumbled,and crashed down the stairs stunning little Henry who was still in the carriage. Henry couldn't move and was trapped as the fire caught up consuming the carriage...

   In the nightmare world of Blackhaven Institution Henry's soul was shaped by his traumatic death into one of the Institution's most viscous demons,evil warped and twisted his innocent little body into a monster of pure nightmare...The Nightmare Carriage. Its large body is severely malformed,enlarged, and infused into a giant carriage. Its skin is a greyish sickly white and covered in patches of charred flesh,its carriage charred from the fire still releases smoke from the back, in the the back of the carriage this demon is attached to a disgusting formation that looks like a loaded diaper that gives off the most vile smell imaginable,this is where a black acidic bile is produced that runs from its eye,nose,and mouth. When startled it spits out it's large pacifier soaked in the dark acidic liquid,convulsing and pulsating it cries with such fury and force. With its long muscular arms and build it can charge at its victims with incredible speed and force. Because of the liquid running from its eye this demon is blind and relies heavily on sound. Using a very strange almost form of echolocation through its cries it can locate its victims. Its two deadly aspects are its acidic vomit and sharp claws, its vomit is highly corrosive towards flesh which can severely damage and digest it rapidly with contact but only stains any inorganic material. Its demonic claws are used for grip while its drags itself for traction and speed as well as inflict serious wounds. Usually accompanying this demon is the ghost of a weeping nurse who rarely shows her face as it has been corroded and destroyed. It is believe that this ghost is Mildred, Henry's nurse who now in Blackhaven accompanies the nightmare carriage in tormenting guilt. The nightmare carriage is one of the many demonic monstrosities of Blackhaven Institution and one of its most deadliest encounters.
