1. If you are dead/have been dead/are undead/have come very close to dying/have strong spiritual power, Antubis will know. Not necessarily the circumstances! But he'll know.

2. Antubis is normally a spirit! Uh. Usually the only ones who see him are:

- dead

- dying

- animals

- in critical condition/having brain surgery/both

- high as a kite

And I can reasonably add 'other gods/people with strong spiritual sense' to those who can see him all the time.

It is canon that he can show himself to the living at will, though, so I am pulling a Mokkun and saying YES YOU CAN SEE HIM unless you want it to be otherwise for comedic purposes. o/ Because his interactions shouldn't all be THE AFTERMATHS OF FIGHT THREADS AND BOSS BATTLES, a-and everyone should get a chance to play with the furry. :3

Age: No age; is essentially a centuries-old god. Spirit. Anteater. Thing.

Medical Info: IS AN ANTEATER

Physical traits: IS AN ANTEATER—okay, hang on, this is tricky. Antubis’s form is fluid; in his own words, he says that he’s ‘different things to different people.’ Kingdom Hospital alone has him appear as a) an anteater, b) a teenage boy, c) a carrion crow, and d) a rabid dog. The first two are used the most, but they’re also masks for Mary’s sake, basically. HOWEVER I get the feeling he’s comfortable with them, and I don’t want to screw with or worry about this kind of thing too much.

Antubis the anteater looks sort of like the giant anteater, but if your character is experienced with animals s/he will notice some drastic differences. Antubis’s form alters with need. He may be a bit bigger or smaller than the norm, his markings aren’t the same (in fact, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t have any, and his fur is uniform brown), and he looks—generally the wrong shape (more humanoid) at times. Most noticeable difference, though, is the teeth: regular anteaters don’t have teeth, whereas Antubis’s muzzle splits to reveal this. Cute.

Antubis as a young man … has longish wavy hair, is really pale and not that great-looking, dresses all in black (lol), and wears a silver ankh around his neck. ‘Sup Death.

What's Okay To Mention Around Him/Her: Anything, I guess. o/

Notes for the Psychics: Antubis is an ENIGMA!!1 even in canon, so I’m going to say he’s immune to that kind of thing. Gotta have some perks.

He has a really weird sense of humor, though. Also, he can talk in your miiiind hurr hurr.

Abilities: hocrap uh--

  • Antubis eats disease. Literally! Both times we see him do it, 'disease' manifests as little red ants that swarm over the affected body part (in one case, a guy's opened brain. Um.) Antubis can heal and hurt as he chooses, and causes what appear to be medical miracles. When he kills, it looks like heart attack, equipment malfunction, etc. Room cameras cannot pick up Antubis or his helpers mauling people.

  • Can talk to animals! Implied somewhat that he can possess them, but, meh. I already mentioned the shapeshifting. No one is sure what his actual form is!

  • Is not omnipotent or invincible, but is an old, old god and spiritual being. He can't be hurt by physical objects--though he can touch them--but things in Swedenborgian space (which is I think the place in between the living and spiritual worlds?) and objects with spiritual power can hurt him.

  • He can use a nifty energy blast. o/ Other powers are deliberately left vague.

  • Antubis seems to be governed by certain rules, especially with regards to the bargains he makes and how much he can intervene/affect events. In other words HE IS ONLY ALLOWED SO MUCH GODMOD.

Can I shapeshift/bodyswap/spit at/step on/etc?: …talk to me about the first two! Latter two may have consequences, depending.

Kissing/Hugging: …he likes being scratched behind the ears.

Fighting: Haha no.

Maim/Murder/Death: He can get hurt under special circumstances! Saying no to death, though, if only because. I have no idea how I would manage that.

Cooking: …haha no.


Character Name: Antubis
Series: Kingdom Hospital
Character Age: Ageless! Looks 17-18 in human form.

Canon: After the end of the Civil War, the Gates Mill uniform factory burned down in a terrible accident that killed dozens of children. Several years later, Kingdom Hospital was built on the site of the tragedy—a state-of-the-art medical facility equipped with a peculiar cast of doctors, patients and staff. Not only do the spirits of the dead roam its halls, but it rests on uneasy ground: a subterranean fault that causes almost daily localized earthquakes.

Antubis is actually Anubis, gatekeeper of the dead and eater of disease. Due to a child's misunderstanding, he usually appears as a ghostly anteater, huge and misshapen, with a mouthful of wickedly sharp teeth. Quiet, enigmatic and quirky, he likes slang and bad puns. He also enjoys making deals ('I do you a solid, you do me a solid,') but beware: his prices may be far steeper than you think. Depending on the bargains made, Antubis can be a faithful guardian who lets people scratch his ears…or a ravening beast that rips their hearts out of their chests.

Sample Post:

You know, my little undead friends, your situation isn't as bad as it's cracked up to be. Sure, you're a little low in the speech department, and maybe everything else too, inside and out. Then again, you got what you got, borrowed a couple of extra parts ... and what you don't have anymore, you've got the option of replacing, right? The gate swings both ways between the living and the dead, after all, and if something gets lost in transit, why, it's fair game for whoever needs it.

Thing is, everything you've been offering me in return so far just isn't right. I'm a magic anteater, see? I grant wishes--whether you want your guts to stop falling out, or even if the lot of you want, say, a bunch of brand-new cerebellums. But it only works if you give me a hand in return, and that kind of hand just won't cut it. Heh. See what I did there.

When you get right down to it, chums, that's your problem: I don't take used goods. Sure, it might work for you, and I see the point of the system. 'Tooth for my tooth, eye for your eye, when we get confused, the parts start to fly,' right? But when you're trying to negotiate with that, it's not convincing, even when you don't drop the merchandise. And even when it doesn't run away all on its lonesome. Huh. Entertaining, maybe, but it doesn't do me any good. I don't bite the hand that feeds me, and I won't feed on the hand that bites me, either.

You're all still going about this the wrong way. Like I've been saying for the past little while, buddies, the deal's pretty simple. Here's how it goes again: I do you a solid, you do me a solid--

--and no, this talk doesn't have anything to do with snakes at all, friend. Put it back in the box, if you would.
