Summary: It can be hard to raise kids, especially if they happen to be on the neurodivergent side of things. But know this, there is NOTHING wrong with any kids like that. They're just like anybody else. In fact, this whole damn site was made by autistic guys. Still, it's only ever bad if a nocturnal demon gets involved...

History: For little autistic and quiet Oliver, he only has his phone to communicate. Its resulted in his parents splitting up, and has caused him no shortage of strife. Then one day, he discovers a storybook app called "Misunderstood Monsters", and befriends its main character, a demon named Larry who wants friendship just as much as Oliver does. But Larry is very much real, and not only hates the guts of the kid's tormentors, but also wants him to come over to his world so that they can be together forever.

Notable Kills: None.

Final Fate: After many hijinks and much trauma instigated by Larry, Oliver's mom volunteers to take her son's place, to which the demon complies. However, it is later shown that Larry is more than willing to let the woman see her son whenever she wants. In general, things ultimately worked out between the natural and the supernatural for once.

Powers/Abilities: Larry can communicate and travel through electronic devices, as well as use them for a combat advantage. With enough power, he can enter the world physically, and bring people over into his realm.

Weakness: If there are no electronic devices anywhere, Larry can't reach you.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-At first, Larry seems like a typically horrific monster, looking like an emaciated naked version of the Slenderman with big red eyes and the art of technopathy. However, an argument can be made that Larry was truly lonely where he came from, and just wanted friends to see every now and then. That app got its name for a reason! In that context, he goes from scary to kind of adorable...just make sure he learns some social skills first.

Trivia: -This film was based off a short known simply as "Larry", made by the same director, Jacob Chase.

-Fittingly enough, Chase's wife works with neurodivergent kids as a job, ensuring that Oliver's character wasn't a stereotype. Very good!

The Red Ring of Death rises...
As you can guess, he's not very popular on Twitter or ANYWHERE.

"Uh...could somebody tell me where the milk is?"
Don't let him into your heart, either.
Break the screen, break his bones. Simple as that.
