In a world of unknown creatures, KING CRYPTID stands alone. Cursed as an immortal almost 500 years ago, KING CRYPTID spent nearly a century as a ravenous feral beast, powerless to stop himself from killing and feeding upon animals and people alike.
In the late 1600s, a Wampanoag shaman named BLACKMOON helped restore KING CRYPTID's humanity by embedding a moonstone of mysterious origin into his crown of bone. In addition to restoring his humanity, the moonstone enhances KING CRYPTID's powers during the various phases of the moon, with his powers being augmented to superhuman levels during the night of a full moon and nearly drained during the night of a new moon.
The moonstone comes at a price, however. On the night of a new moon, when the moon's light isn't able to charge the stone, KING CRYPTID will return to his cursed feral state until the moon's light shines once again. The only way for KING CRYPTID to avoid this fate is for him to rest and recharge in the waters of a cosmic spring located inside of his cave lair.
A hero to some, a god to a few, and a legendary creature to most, the man once known as KROWAN has spent nearly four centuries seeking redemption and trying to unravel the mysteries of the world around him; meeting many friends and battling many foes along the way.
