The Child

The Child is one of the several Entities of the Realm and is second most known entity, after the The Outsider. They have visited nearly every connected world personally, often playing hide and seek with new potential guardians. However, the majority of the the potentials are not deemed worthy of the title by The Child are often left searching for days. The Child will play a different game on occasion, but there is no pattern to the other games. Other times they simply state, "I need your help" or "X needs your help" and lead the new guardian off to a secluded area. There they gift the new guardian a "quest" to meet with the rest of the other new guardians on another world. After the quest finishes, the guardians from the other world is often met by The Outsider and offered a one way trip back to their homeworld.
