Description: Imagine a humanoid figure, made out of teeth. Put it in a robe with a hood, then give it a staff. Oh, and give it a nice office, with actually rather comfortable chairs for visitors. Rexdentium also has a remarkably smooth and mellow voice.

Call him ‘Rex.’ Or ‘Dent,’ if you’re an American. It’s fairly relaxed about nomenclature, not least because virtually nobody under the level of a god can even pronounce Rexdentium’s True Name. Sapient supernatural entities made out of constantly-moving teeth just have certain advantages, sometimes.

It’s weird, mind you, just how quickly people get over the ‘made of living teeth’ thing. It should be terrifying, right? But it’s not, somehow. Yes, sure, Rex is used to humans staring for a few minutes, the first time it meets a new client or colleague. They stare… and then the humans get over it. Rex thinks it’s because most people sort of blur their mental eyes a little after a little bit, and start acting as if Rex was just a mobile skeleton. Which shouldn’t be better, but it is anyway. Maybe it’s because people can process the idea of a walking, talking skeleton, at least. That gives them some leeway in which to function.

Or, honestly, maybe it’s just that Rex isn’t a bad… ‘entity?’ Sure, ‘entity’ sounds nice and non-judgemental. The entity considers itself to be an integral part of humanity; which does make a certain amount of sense, given that it’s literally made out of human teeth. Rex has a innate and instinctive desire to help humans. It likes humans. It wants to protect humans, particularly the younger ones. That’s pretty much Rex’s motivations, straight up.

Rex is also obsessed with the nature and workings of magic. Teeth, of course, are powerful occult symbols that can be used to powerful effect in spellcasting (for both good and evil). And since Rex is an entity that is made up entirely of other people’s teeth, it learned quickly how to protect both itself and others against the nastier sort of magicians. From there it was merely a short time before Rex found itself in the magical protection and curse-breaking business. Which Rex turned out to be rather good at, which is why the entity now runs an extremely profitable occult consulting firm that caters to a rather select clientele.

Oh, yes, Rexdentium is rich. Not because of the fillings (that insinuation is frankly gross, not to mention a grotesque slander). Rex is rich because it never sleeps and likes to work. And it turns out that wizards can claim the purchase of new occult texts as being a legitimate business expense. Go figure, huh?

    I feel like Rexdentium would do well in a microfiction story or two. I get a bit of Ghoul-Lords vibe off of Dent. That’s a good thing.
