(a.k.a. Baitman’s Children, Dero)
The children seem to a product of something Dr. Bateman, former director of the Hillcrest Mental Health Center, was involved in.
The creatures resemble normal, if underfed children. They have been blamed for kidnapping and possibly sacrificing people and attacking Sandmen. When killed they turn into a black sludge.
They are protecting something under the Hillcrest Mental Health Center. Strange black cubes with unknown powers.
They possess the power to inflict terrible pain at a touch and instill fear.
