"It was 4 am, and there's a large sofa in the streets, old and worn, seams torn. I was coming home from my night shift, seeing a homeless person sleeping on it. As I pass by, I heard mechanical whirring. The sofa was gone, the man was on the floor still sleeping. What could have done this?"

The Purinsumocholing originated from the use of street cleaning machines, mostly garbage trucks.

It resembles a tubular steel tank with long thin legs and a large toothy mouth. Its body is hollow and glows a shade of yellow, yellowish green, or orange. Despite its seemingly fragile legs, the Purinsumocholing can hold its body upright. Inside it's huge, fat lips are bristly teeth, similar to that of baleen in whales. A transparent casing can be seen underneath, yet it doesn't act solid. Yellow, ghostly arms manifest from its sides to pick up trash through the underbelly.

The Purinsumocholing's body can be easily dented with a blunted object, and it will take 3 days to regain its form; however, if the Purinsumocholing was crushed and torn, it won't recover from its injuries and will soon die afterward.

The Purinsumocholing communicates through slow, grating hisses and metallic groaning. The sounds resonate from the Borderling's hollow body rather than its mouth.

An impure Purinsumocholing will have no mouth, but in its place is a melted, gaping hole. Because of this, the only sounds the Borderling will make are moans and groans of agony.

Effect on Its Surroundings


The Purinsumocholing's effect radius is expansive, covering the entire suburban area. The whole neighborhood will have the collective thought that the Borderling's chatter are just the sounds of an ordinary garbage truck. Rarely, by any chance, people and animals will be immune to this effect. Any ultraviolet light will expose the Borderling, revealing it only to the viewer. 

Any damage done by the Purinsumocholing's claws will have a yellow, glowing residue that has a texture of chalk dust. Ironically, for a Borderling that eats trash, the powder heals wounds that only the Borderling had made. Skin lesions will fully heal within an hour, but broken bones cannot heal.
Sometimes side effects will occur. Glowing yellow boils will appear on the skin where the powder had made contact. This will attract other street dwelling Borderlings, as they see the boils as purifying nectar that cures corruption within their own kind. In 8 hours, the boils will deflate and disappear. If the nectar or powder isn't used within these 8 hours, they will lose their healing effects. Their glow will diminish and will lose their effects.

Diet and Behavior


The Purinsumocholing has an oblivious and distant disposition. It wanders aimlessly in a straight line in suburban neighborhoods alone. Their locomotion is tedious and careful. Each stride will sound like a motor of a large vehicle. Their footprints will leave a faint powder residue on anything it touches. 

When the Purinsumocholing reaches the end of a neighborhood, it will make a 180 angle and return in a straight line. It collects any trash they can find while wandering the suburbs. On rare occasions, the Borderling will roam into the city.

If a Purinsumocholing encounter another of its own kind, it turns and heads in the opposite direction. It avoids any communication and competition with other Borderlings, including other Purinsumocholings.

Once its body cavity is full of garbage, the Purinsumocholing will behave differently and head towards any large space where there's very little flora. Parking lots and abandoned lots with flat concrete are ideal for the Purinsumocholing to feed. There, the

transparent container will dematerialize, dumping the collected trash all at once underneath its scrawny legs. It will kneel down head first and eat what they had collected. With their strong teeth, it grinds the junk into mush that will be completely absorbed into another layer of body casing. Other Purinsumocholings will dump their load next to the other Borderlings and eat along with the first. If an intruder enters into their feeding area, the Purinsumochlings will immediately give chase. Slower intruders will get trampled on by the Borderlings sharp claws on their feet.
Other street Borderlings will take a risk and gather around the trash heap after methodically distracting the Street Cleaner. After eating their meal. they revert to their normal behavior and part ways.


An impure Purinsumochling will not survive long after gathering enough garbage for a meal. The trash will spill out from the hole where its head used to be and will shortly die of starvation.

Habitat, Predation, and Interdimensional Travel


The Purinsumocholing can be found wandering the suburban streets, gathering food for 2 hours before the garbage trucks arrive. Glowing, yellow outlines will manifest themselves before the Borderling will take on a solidified body.

The Purinsumochling will only eat 650lb to 1500lb (294.8kg - 680.38kg) of trash once a day and will appear once a week. A meal less than the required weight will make the Borderling's body denser and more vulnerable than normal. Its legs will break under their weight and will fall to their death. After their demise, another Purinsumochling will emerge upwards from the busted containers of their corpse.

After the Purinsumochling's routine around the neighborhood, it will slowly fade into nothing. There are no portals seen when the Borderling manifests itself.
