The Rake is a humanoid creature described by reports of being 6 feet tall, with grayish skin and big black eyes resembling a large hairless dog or a naked man. It is often seen in suburban areas and when spotted it just stares at the person. If provoked or approached, it opens its mouth and widens its eyes. The Rake is known for stalking, including nightmares and then tearing apart his victims. The nightmares are its method of choice, they are always the same, it's of the creature sitting at the end of the bed observing the victim. It feeds its sanity for a while and then it kills them. It is speculated that the Rake is a proxy which has gone though mutation due to powers given by the Slender Man.
The ones who survive to tell the story end up in asylum or commit suicide.
The Creature is mentioned in written testimonies that date back to the 12th century.
In almost cases, the stories were identical.
