Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of average humans.
Affiliation: Good (Ian Stone, Gray), Evil (the rest)
Summary: Being a shadowy being of pure malevolence sounds like the kind of thing you’d have to be really sick in the head to enjoy. And in all honesty, they're right. But what if you were one...and you wanted to change? Turns out, you can do it. But it takes more than a little effort...
History: Ian Stone doesn't have any control of his life. Or should we say, lives? Every time the clocks stop ticking, odd spirits get him killed and thrust into a different life with the same characters but different roles. As it turns out, Ian was at one point a Harvester, a creature that feeds off of fear and death. He was one with a whole "fold" of them, and even had a mate in the form of Medea. But then he met Jenny Walker, fell in genuine love, and resigned his immortality to be human. Now, the rest of the Harvesters are out to kill him or bring him back. Ian will need both the help of Jenny and an old veteran renegade Harvester named Gray to find freedom.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After Gray sacrifices himself to empower Ian with Harvester powers, our hero realizes that he's tapped into a new conduit of power; that of love. With it, he can now beat his kind, and has formed a now permanent lifetime where he and Jenny are still together. He now kicks Harvester ass on the side.
Powers/Abilities: Harvesters can transcend reality, form weapons as their limbs, and are generally invincible.
Weakness: The power of love, as well as each-other.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-Okay, so the effects don't quite capture the fright here, especially when they go all misty, but the Harvesters still look frighteningly cool. Like reapers with organic scythes, is what we're saying. Also, there are good Harvesters, so try and count on them instead.
Trivia: -This film was directed by Dario Piana, who also did a sequel to "The Lost Boys", and not much else.
-On the subject of love redeeming otherwise bad monsters, there is the tale of Hades and Persephone, which is often interpreted as the God of the Underworld managing to find a source of empathy and love from Demeter's daughter, even if he did kidnap her in the first place. But through Elysium pomegranate seeds and maybe a bit more, Persephone opted to every six months. And now you know why the seasons change!
