Slender Man (a.k.a Slenderman) is a mythical creature often depicted as a tall, thin figure wearing a black suit and a blank face. According to the legend, he can stretch or shorten his arms at will and has tentacle-like appendages protruding from his back. Depending on the interpretations of the myth, the creature can cause memory loss, insomnia, paranoia, coughing fits (nicknamed “slendersickness”), photograph/video distortions and can teleport at will. The urban legend has inspired fan arts, fictiona lcreepypastas and a mockumentary series in the style of the 1999 indie horror film Blair Witch Project.#
Slender Man stalked and was eventualy killed by Jeff, Jeff then found out he had merely killed a man in a costume and Slender Man had never exsisted. Jeff took on the role as Slender Man by wearing the mask. HABIT sealed it to his face and earased all of his previous memory, for some reason Slender Man was able to find his dropped diary and tell Simon about his previous life, its thought that this was realy just HABIT inside Simons head. Simon was stalked and befreinded by the Slender Man who he now sees as a friend and sometimes even a father figure. Dispite all this Simon is not a Proxy. Slender Man has defended Simon from the Rake on multiple occasions and has even spoken to him; somthing the Slender Man rarely does. The previous Slender Man before Jeff killed him did not posses of the powers Jeff now does. These powers include limited teleportaion, extendeable arms and legs and superhuman strength.
