First Appearance

The Rake

“I have not seen the Rake since he ruined my life, but I know that he has been in my room while I slept. I know and fear that one night I’ll wake up to see him staring at me.”
— "The Rake", original creepypasta

A brutal, savage beast... yet, The Rake is at least capable of human speech and is likely quite intelligent. It is theorized, however, that the Rake has merely been putting on the "beast" act for a long time, and is far, far more intelligent than it lets on. It is typically described as a humanoid creature with canine characteristics, a skinny, bony physique, pale skin, glowing eyes, and long blade-like fingers, which it was named after. It frequently sneaks into the rooms of sleeping victims in the dead of night to whisper something in their ear. The subject matter and purpose of these ominous whispers is a mystery, but normally results in the person committing suicide or leaving the Rake's chosen territory. It will turn violent should a victim awaken, preferring to gore and lacerate its target to death with its claws. Those unfortunate enough to be driven to insanity by the Rake will sometimes become his servants, the Maenads.

Its domain was seen very briefly as a densely wooden area that Steward was taken to after he was kidnapped. It is unknown if this was the same place as the "Wilderness of Whispers" from Once There Was.
