Some of the most alien-looking horrors hail from the lightless depths of the ocean -- one of the places in Zack's world where cacodaimons can slide from their reality to our own.

Dragonfish - This has teeth on both jaws and even its tongue. Though terrifying in appearance, the fish are only about the size of a banana. Julian Finn, Museum Victoria, Census for Marine Life)

Cacodaimons aren't evil in the strictest sense - they wouldn't know they meaning of the word. They are beings of chaos, and they chew on the edges of the World of Form.

I'm not afraid of water, but after imagining some of the horrors in the #shadowside, perhaps I should be...

Annelid (Tomopterae) - The polychaete Tomopteris is one of the only marine creatures that makes yellow luminescence. When disturbed, a flurry of glowing sparks will erupt from the parapodia (the paddle-like structures).

Cobra and serpent imagery is combined in their hooded heads and long, sinuous bodies -- which Zack can see coiling around the victims they seek to possess.

Humans (and recently deceased bodies) ridden by cacodaimons can be heard loosing the distinctive, chittering cry of the Unmakers as they chase down their prey.

The vampire's pale lips stretched in a gruesome grin that exposed it's razor sharp fangs, blood dipped from it's mouth no doubt from it's last victim.

H.R. Giger is another artist who made excellent use of biological composites to craft horrors that chase us into our nightmares. The Xenomorphs of "Aliens" - and their nasty little face-hugging offspring - are some of his most memorable creations.

One of the reasons the alien face-huggers designed by H.R. Giger get such a visceral reaction from movie-goers is the way they take familiar elements from real animals and other sources and recombine them into something hideous and new.

Cacodaimons are parasites. They crawl into human beings who are sufficiently "empty" or "broken" to allow them entry. Failing living subjects, the cacodaimons of the Shadowside series can also possess the recently dead.

More horrors from the deep. In the Shadowside series, the cacodaimons hail from the deep places, and some have crawled out of Lake Erie to pursue Zack.

The deep-sea shrimp (Acanthephyra purpurea) spews bioluminescence out of its mouth, like a fire-breathing dragon. The light serves to distract or temporarily blind a predator like this viper fish (Chauliodus danae).
