My entry for the Phobos Contest. My category was "Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia," the fear of 666.
About this creation
The Hexaturn is a creature that prows the catacombs and cemeteries, waiting for persons with the fear of sixes ( if none appear he will decide to MAKE you fear sixes). The reason all who encounter him fear sixes forever after might be because he has 6 limbs ,or 6 blades, or 6 tails, or 6 eyes, or perhaps it's the 6 wings or maybe even the 6 teeth, but at any rate this creature of the night will haunt your mathematics and time keeping for long, long time.
The Hexaturn lives in the rocky cliffs near the great tombs, where its red to black coloring helps it to camouflage by day.
This creation is under is over 15 inches if you extend the "wings" up too far, but it can still easily fit into the size limit. I suppose "Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia" is pretty much close enough to just plain fear of sixes (not 666), though in hindsite maybe I should have just gone with a beast from Revelation...
