Pack predators with an alarming amount of teeth
Dirt and fragments of old, brittle teeth crunched under my boots as I backed up to the cliff. I saw plainly the outline of my steps glowing faintly in the ground--my steps had reactivated the faint glow of their teeth.
One of them stepped forward, black coat glistening like oil by the moonlight. It's lips drew back over the splinters and shards of its uneven teeth, curling into a broad, unmistakeable grin.
"Heeee.... heee.... heeee...." it growl-giggled at me, pitch so low I felt it quaking in my bowels.
The Laughing Night are a family of predators and scavengers native to Jhoutai. They are fierce, intelligent, unrelenting, and social— a force to be reckoned with. Their name derives from their inky black coat, and the characteristic chatter they use to communicate and intimidate.
These nocturnal creatures ambush live prey at night utilizing their agility, numbers, and venomous fangs. Their lethal combination allows them to conquer prey ten times their size. During the day time, they will scavenge the area around their dens for small vermin and plot out the terrain of their upcoming hunt.
Laughing Night Fur is thick, and rough. The combination helps reflect the least amount of light possible. To the naked eye under normal light, the fur is an inky black.
The undercoat is biofluorescent, meaning that under the UV rays of Ansang, it refracts blue light. This glow appears as countless shifting striations underneath pitch black fur.
