Apophis Picture

This is another one that's more for Ben than anybody else, pursuant to a discussion we had under [link] about the possibility of rogue or AWOL cyborg operatives playing the role of mythological monsters in native extrasolar cultures. The premise here is an insane, heavily degraded cyborg roping its way through the treetops and preying opportunistically on the hapless natives, who perceive it as a sort of "forest demon." This was, in fact, my original concept for the Penanggalan ([link]), and as such may be considered an alternate take on that idea.
