Audio File

An Antloling is heard croaking
nearby a fountain.


The Antloling originated when the modern sewage system was built.

It resembles a bright blue slug with long, thin legs underneath. It comes in different shades of blue, but always with the same shade of yellow within each individual. Larger Antlolings are a darker shade of blue. The rings on its back vary on each individual, each has a wavy O-shape with some specks. Soft, loose skin hangs from the sides of
the Borderling's body and tail, but its head is solid and smooth.

Although the Antloling's legs appear frail, they can still support its plump body. The neck has the same girth as its legs; however, it’s still strong enough to support its large, heavy head. The
Borderling’s head has a flat snout and a narrow mouth underneath which never closes. There are sharp, inward-curving teeth in the
mouth, but its jaws are weak. Its teeth are connected to its solid and firm, yellow gums.

The Antloling walks and crawls effortlessly, despite its seemingly large head. A long and powerful tongue hangs out of its mouth, and it is strong enough to grasp prey and to break their bones. The tongue is sticky and loose, and it connects to the Antloling's body cavity rather than the back of its throat.

Copious amount of viscous pale-yellow sludge drips from the Antloling’s mouth, hands and the yellow edges of its tail. The skin feels slippery and smooth to the touch and will leave the same sticky residue if something, like a hand, presses hard on it. A thin, watery variant of the slime is the only substance that fills up its body. It has yellow bones that are made out of the same material as its teeth and jaws. A thin coat of oily residue on its body regenerates fast and seems never-ending. Therefore it doesn't seem to run out of sludge throughout its lifetime.

Wounds take up to 4 days to heal; however, being torn apart is fatal to the Borderling, and will erupt into a puddle of slime. It can only survive up to 6 minutes afterward.

Growls and prolonged belches are its only ways of communicating. An individual will recognize these sounds as a stomach gurgling when a person doesn't have food for a long while.

In some cases, stuttering can be heard resonating from
the creature's hollow throat - like hiccups.

An impure Antloling has less saturated colors on its body and its locomotion is sluggish. Patches of brown rot will gradually appear on its skin. It won't stay for long in Earth's dimension. A few minutes after arrival, it will vomit all its fluids at once and collapse into a deflated husk.

Effects on Its Surroundings

The Antloling's bodily fluids emit a rancid odor. The atrocious scent is similar to a rotten grilled cheese sandwich left out in the heat of midday. Humans who approach the creature will experience nausea during the first 2 minutes of exposure. Any living creature over 100lbs (45.4 kg) and within the 1ft radius of the source of the odor will begin to experience abdominal pain for the first 5 minutes of contact. The effect will get worse each and every 2 minutes until the victim will vomit a mix of the thick yellow fluid and their own digested meal within 24 hours. The liquid will be the same substance as the Antloling's insides, a nasty concoction of bile and otherworldly sludge.
Animals that weigh 100 lbs (45.4 kg) or less will only exhibit severe nausea without vomiting and will faint when around the Antloling. Touching an Antloling, without inhaling the fumes from the slime, won't affect the human body. The Borderling won't react to anyone's touch unless harmed.

Diet and Behavior

The Antloling is an intelligent predator, and it will use its sticky secretions as traps to catch unwary prey. It moves at a slow pace, dragging its tongue and tail while swaying its head from side to side like it was drunk from a long night of partying.

Groups of Antlolings are found huddled together in the mouths of drainage systems and are consist of up to 5 to 12 individuals. When hunting for prey in the sewers, the Antloling will grab its tongue with its thin hands and use it to leave a path of slime for its own kind to follow and to be used to mark territory to warn off rival groups of Antlolings. An individual will never stray farther than 2 yards away from the gutters and drainage systems.

Small street-dwelling animals, like rats, mice, and pigeons, comprise the Antloling’s diet. When in presence of caught prey, it slaps its soon-to-be meal with its sticky tongue and then shoves slime into the creature's throat. When the prey dies from suffocation, the Antloling will grab its massive tongue

with one of its hands and shove the tongue and prey inside its throat. Digestion will take up to 8 hours.
When threatened by a larger attacker, it will spit its mucus into the attacker's facial orifices – the mouth, the eyes, and the nostrils.

An impure Antloling will not have the energy to join in on the hunt and has to stay inside underground. Healthier Borderlings of its kind will save extra food for the other, bringing it in front of the Antloling so it can feast. Although it gets help from other Antlolings, it won't stay for long in the Earth Dimension. Soon after 2 hours of stay, it lazily dissolves into a pile of yellow mush. Whenever this can be its death or a way to return to the Externus is unknown.

Location, Survival on Earth and Interdimensional Travel

The Antloling resides in front of urban and suburban drainage systems and deep within the sewage system.
A flushing sound like that of a draining sink can be heard when the Borderling enters our world. It crawls in and out of a watery vortex inside sewers. Because it is blind, it has to feel and smell its surroundings. After the creature enters the sewage systems, it immediately climbs out of any nearby opening. When alone, it will mark its territory with its tongue. Antloling groups are constantly wandering in the sewage, looking for ideal shelter and hunting grounds.

The Antloling is a secondary food source to the larger Oleoling, and its sticky secretions won't affect the predatory Borderling's slippery body and lack of respiratory openings. If it smells the oil Borderling
nearby, it will huddle close to other Antlolings and immediately head back underground. Moist air will be enough for groups of Antlolings to arrive on Earth in their locations. The Antlolings won't be found on Earth in weather with dry air and hot weather as they will last in lesser numbers and won't stay as long. An Antloling in dry heat will quickly die. Its skin dries and splits open, spilling out its tongue and fluids.
The same flushing sound as when they first come to Earth will be heard when the air becomes too dry for the Antloling to survive and a portal will open that lasts for 10 minutes. Any Antlolings that are late to reach the Externus will either try to find shelter or find another group of Antlolings. A solitary Antloling may easily get lost from their temporary home and risks dying in the heat. Moist and dark areas will help hydrate the Antloling until it gets enough strength to open a rift.

    Weight: 67.9lbs (316.6kg)

    The Carnivorantloling can be seen around artificial lakes and rivers.

    It is a lone predator. With its long, strong legs, it can chase down prey effortlessly. Its diet includes water birds, lizards, fish and rats.

    Its effect radius is shorter than most Antlolings. Exposure of this Borderling will cause sticky yellow fluids to seep through its prey's pores.

  3. 4 out of 4
