To the ordinary eye, a candyman looks like a normal member of the community in question. To those who can see such things, they appear as hideously deformed humans with long, sharp claws and needle-sharp pointed teeth. One can cell the passing of a candyman by the sweet odor char follows it wherever it goes.

‘The creature creates a lair in a cave or hidden shack just outside the particular community it has chosen to terrorize. The hideous creatures are always found alone.

Any child who approaches the seemingly friendly entity is given a piece of candy and a small trinket of some kind – a block, a wooden crain, a slingshot, or some other toy suitable to the child’s interests.

As long as the child keeps the toy in her possession, the child thinks about the candyman and trinket to spend more time with “him.” Once the child eats the piece of candy, she seems to become obsessed with the “strange visitor” and she tries to find his lair. As the child searches the area, the candyman, in its true demon form, attacks and captures the child. A captured child is subjected to horrible psychological tortures, primarily to generate fear. Once the child has begun developing an immunity to the terrors of the candyman, the child is slain. If the child throws away the toy, the child is free of the creature’s grip. Due to the obvious nature of the candyman’s attack, they normally must find a new community after abducting only a few children.
