Also called a Fleshie or Mud-man, this surprisingly fast and aggressive monster can liquefy and absorb skin and fat by touch, adding to its own dripping mass. Its mostly boneless body can easily squeeze under doors and squirm through plumbing in pursuit of this sustenance, even collapsing its eyeballs and brain in tighter situations. Struggling prey is sometimes smothered to death before the feeding is complete, but it always prefers live absorption and may form a partnership with creatures that can paralyze or entangle live food.
The Waxwork smells sharply of body odor and ranges in color depending on the skin tones of recent prey, eventually turning brown or black as it mixes a wide range of tissues. Its thickly greasy body feels gelatinous and light, but demonstrates great tensile strength. It produces sounds like a bleating goat, but can learn gurgling, slurred speech.
