These mysterious doors have fascinated me since I was a child. There is nothing more mysterious than a door that should not be there. They appear at will; I suspect where they feel safe or needed. Exploring them can be quite the adventure and sometimes even dangerous!
These living doors can appear anywhere in the world in a human-made wall. The reason for their existence is unknown. Each door leads to a small space behind it that cannot be seen from back of the wall.
Appearance & Structure
I believe there are seventeen of these doors around the world. There might be more, but the doors I know don't talk about any that I have not met. And since they can simply move at will, it is impossible to find a door that does not wish to be found.
Each door has an outside and an inside. The door can mimic any kind of door with any kind of material, but they usually mimic a door that fits into their current location. A door can have a locking mechanism or not. The space behind the door can be as small as a broom closet or encompass an entire village. The space can change over time to accommodate visitors inside or fight them when they are not welcome. Sometimes the doors even accept permanent or temporary residents within their space.
Habitat & Distribution
The doors really saved my life. I was once on an investigation in an abandoned village. The village inhabited by a group of feral vampires who hunted me down the moment they realized I was there. I was on death's door and trapped in a small room. This is when suddenly the doors appeared all together to save me. This made me realize the doors were aware of me and somehow found me when I was in danger. It was the first and last time that I saw twelve of the doors appear in the same room.
A door can appear on any wall anywhere in the world. There appears to be no limit in the distance a door can travel. The door is always only visible on one side of the wall. Sometimes many of the doors appear close to each other, but every door has their preferred settlement or region.
Perception / Sensory Capabilities
A living door has limited sensory capabilities on the outside
. They can perceive a threat against them and then disappear to save themselves. This makes it basically impossible to destroy any of these doors.
On the inside
, they are seemingly aware of everything that goes on. They can react to human communication and animal actions.
