physical appearance
The madradrone /ˈmɑdrɪdrəʊn/ is a white, black, and pink stranger, with ten to fourteen thick yet tapered arms on both its back and underside, and a bulky, fatty body. Its skin is soft and slightly greasy to the touch, while its flesh is white and suety. It smells strongly of artificially sweet chemicals, an odor which becomes unbearable at close range.
Although the madradrone's eyelids are usually kept tightly closed, its "eyes" connect directly to its body cavity. This cavity is filled with a light red liquid, which possesses a blood-like smell and consistency and, at a pH of 0.2, is acidic enough to eat through most timber at a rate of 0.3 inches per minute. The madradrone cannot be exsanguinated, and bleeds out excess fluid as needed.
When eyes opened up to let pink pour out, the room filled up like a milking tank, and the dark red blood mixed in with a pool already ankle deep.

When harmed, the stranger's body becomes grotesque at the point of injury. Blotches or vein-like markings appear across the skin, and the the blood splashes or oozes outwards. The flesh heals rapidly, albeit with much bubbling; even deep gashes seal themselves up within one to eight minutes.
ɱ But what falls on the skin gets absorbed right back in.

The madradrone's voice is breathy, reverberant, and exclusively female. It possesses no language of its own. A wet and pulsing heartbeat also emanates from deep within it.
Ohh, oh yes...yes, oh yes. More...
environment and generation
The madradrone appears in or nearby hospitals or other medical facilities, such as research laboratories. It generates exclusively within locked-up rooms, with only 0.4 incidences per year worldwide. When it first appears, it starts off transparent, and fades into solid form within several seconds, a transition accompanied by a long, throaty moan.

behaviour
The madradrone possesses a blissfully destructive disposition. It squirms forward on its many fleshy arms, and makes obscene, self-fondling motions when not in motion. Its topmost arms grab at and pull apart any object within reach, and it uses its fists to pound at walls or other solid objects when there is nothing breakable that it can grab. Although the madradrone's arm movements are fast and hectic, its overall locomotive speed is extremely slow, and it moves at a rate of less than three inches per second. As it appears within enclosed spaces, it tends to stick to the room in which it originates. It roams infrequently, with the madradrone preferring to stay in one area rather than remain on the move.
interactions with sensitives
The madradrone always grabs any sensitive who comes too close, and holds them using the arms on its back. Once its captive is firmly in its grasp, the stranger is only too happy to use its small but strong hands to grab and yank off fingers, ears, the nose, or any other body part that it can grab onto. Once these "small candidates" have been removed, it twists off the head or limbs, or pulls out exposed bones or viscera. Despite its aggression, during these attacks, the madradrone vocalizes its horror, and turns its head away.
These actions, in varying order.
"Please, stop," it gasps. Then after a violent snap, again, "stop, please...you're hurting me." Its voice so breathy, "don't do this."

The madradrone attacks for only 10-250 seconds, after which, it drops its victim to the floor and clutches its own body tightly, alternating between sobs, moans, and short bursts of laughter. Due to the madradrone's ferocity, even sensitives who survive a madradrone attack find themselves permanently (and often shockingly) disfigured.
A scrambled-up puzzle, missing too many pieces to solve.
When attacked or harmed in any way, the madradrone only gasps with pleasure.
It's got acidic blood bubbling out of its eyes, a whole bunch of arms that are always waving around trying to break stuff or generally be violent, and its voice sounds like a scene from some messed up French movie – do you really need a warning on a website to tell you not to go near this thing? It's also got a real powerful grip you probably can't get out of, and it tries to kill you by ripping you up bit by bit so even if you do live, you don't have all of your face anymore, you've got only a few fingers, and it's smashed up at least ten of the most important bones. This kind of outcome is really preventable, so turn around and walk away, and don't use it for any creepy cult stuff, either, that's just wrong!
danger rating: it's just gonna kill you
aging and death
As the madradrone ages, its movements become slower and less coordinated, and its disposition, more sedate. Once it becomes too weak to pick up objects, it stops moving, and spends its time sobbing into its own hands. When it dies, it dies with a final, satisfied moan, before its blood eats its flesh from the inside out.
Caustic, the whole time?
As the corpse dissolves to nothing, the remainder of the blood spills out. It evaporates within twenty-four hours, leaving only a corroded patch.
