Mystic Investigations still has an open research file on the mysterious Slender Man. Some trivialize his existence to reassure themselves all is well. Unfortunately, Slender Man is a deadly threat for all who cross his paralyzing paranormal path. He has managed to weave his way through the dark shadows of ancient history without much mention until the information age of the 21st century. Slender Man was often mistaken for other supernatural beings the slim number of times his presence is mentioned in paranormal records. Evidence indicates that this apparently immortal creature existed from at least Egyptian times some 5000 years ago. Some claim he’s existed from the dawn of time itself! This doesn’t seem to be the case since he’s clearly confined to the planet Earth. Once the modern era of photographic mass communication took hold, along with the legend of his existence being resurrected, the sightings of this deeply diabolical denizen of darkness have increased exponentially.
There has been a suggestion that there might be multiple Slender Men. This is definitely not the case since no sightings ever happened at the same time. Various powerful psychics also agree they feel one dark force when reading his victims and examining the areas he’s previously been in. The short intervals between some reports clearly indicate he utilizes teleportation as a method of travel. Certainly, eye witnesses seeing him disappear into thin air back this hypothesis up. This might explain why some assume he’s more than one person.
The silent Slender Man is known to be a slender white to gray skinned faceless entity of at least seven to nine feet tall with multiple tentacle-like arms that have the ability to stretch to different lengths along with his legs. He can also appear with just two arms that have long-fingered hands. When the other tentacle appendages grow forth they normally have blade-like ends rather than hands. He has been known to skewer people with them if they’re foolish enough to attack him. He wears a black or gray business suit along with a black tie. Sometimes red just before he commits murder via his mind-controlled proxies. At least this is the case in modern accounts from the 20th century. Earlier accounts indicate dress wear from whatever era he was in. Clearly, for whatever reason, he’s into dressing well when he induces his mental terror, or takes a human life via driving someone violently insane, or compelling a victim to do it. Slenderman is mystically bound by an unknown force to only directly physically engage people if they attack him.
Based on the fact that his height varies, and his arms stretch, he is clearly a shapeshifter of some type. Since his suit seems to grow with his two main arms, and the other appendages appear right out of the solid looking suit, this indicates that his clothing is apart of his body as well. He’s known for kidnapping children along with terrorizing and murdering adults. Many times he utilizes his extensive mind control powers to make people murder for him by proxy. For whatever reason, he enjoys stalking people for years or even decades causing great mental, and emotional anguish. Slender Man seems to have a great fascination with children and is most often photographed around them. In fact, the most reported sightings of him are on playgrounds around the world. Children do possess the magic of innocence which is coveted by many a practitioner of magic. It could be that he feeds off their unique mystic energy. This might be his secret to immortality. His varying skin colors of white to gray might indicate him in a strengthened or weakened state. Bright means he’s at full metaphysical power while the rare black coloring, seen once in a blue moon, indicates severe weakness. This could be his black blood seeping to the surface as his shape begins to lose integrity.
Although he spends most of his time tormenting humans he has run across other paranormal entities. These limited reports indicate that he has power over them as well. Although these were only chance meetings since he’s never shown an interest in other paranormal creatures. Clearly, Slendy prefers easy human targets, and would rather not deal with supernatural beings who might present somewhat of a challenge. A powerful second generation vampire from 17th century France reported he ran across what we think is the Slender Man. The vampire in question, who chooses to remain nameless, claims that he was curious about the mysterious being lurking about the grounds of a mansion. Both Slendy and the vampire were stalking a lovely aristocratic woman inside the large Château. The vampire attacked Slender Man, and when he sunk his teeth into his neck he said that he felt immediately weak, and paralyzed. He fell to the grass with Slender Mans pitch black blood dripping from his mouth. Slender stood over him silently but the vampire could read a plethora of violent, and deeply disturbing psychic thoughts coming from the faceless creature. One of Slender Man’s arms extended down to the vampire’s neck, launching him well over the tree line deep into a forest nearby. The vampire was barely able to crawl away into deep brush cover before the sun rose.
After that experience, the vampire had repeated night, and day terrors for centuries, and has stayed in urban areas since Slender Man seems to stick to the rural countryside. Wooded areas in particular. He’s also stated that he has never been able to get the wretched taste of Slender Man’s blood from his mouth. It taints all other blood he drinks. The vampire has tried to kill himself in order to end his misery but some mental block prevents it. Perhaps a piece of Slender Man hypnosis to ensure the vampire suffers for eternity for daring to attack him. Even those who have tried to kill this unfortunate vampire fall under a mental spell, and simply walk away. This could be the vampire using his own hypnosis against his will due to the Slender Man programming. Either way this pitiful, yet once magnificent, vampire must be haunted by the specter of the Slender Man for all eternity!
Besides shapeshifting, and mind control powers that allow him to use people as puppets he appears to have powers of invisibility or teleportation abilities that allow him to appear, and disappear instantly at will. There are reports of him appearing to only select people. This would indicate more mind control abilities. Various distortions in up close photos, videos, and audio indicate he gives off a strong electromagnetic field. So he’s got a lot of paranormal juice flowing through his body which is biological based on some reports including the vampire mentioned above. Besides his power to induce psychosis in individuals he can also make them physically ill. In some cases giving them a permanent disease that no scientist can identify. Cryptozoologists have called it the Slender Man Sickness. It is unlike any other paranormal disease they’ve seen, and it is a complete mystery as to how it works. Those stricken with it eventually go insane, and commit suicide! However, it seems Slender Man can slow down, or halt the illness if he’s using them as his personal puppets.
We have confirmed that the Slender Man is a being from a parallel dimension sent here as a punishment. It’s unclear if he’s a criminal sent here by an official government, or an enemy sent him to Earth which is now his prison. A unique energetic inter-dimensional force has been detected using Goddess Gaia’s soul, aka Mother Earth, as a conduit to keep Slender Man tied to Earth. He can teleport anywhere on the planet but nowhere else. The force that traps him here also protects him from death yet not injury. It also prevents him from killing people directly which is why he needs proxy puppets. He appears to fear no one except another of his kind from his dimension sent here to assassinate him. This individual is known as The Slender Man Assassin. Apparently only one of his own kind can kill him in defiance of the force that currently protects him in order to maintain his life sentence on Earth. [Twitter]
