I got my first sighting of the creature tonight. Hawk has been asleep almost non-stop since we got here, but I could no longer be still, so I got up and went to have a bit of a look around close to where we passed out. I happened to look out into the distance and there it was. It didn't see me. It appeared to be too busy sniffing around, looking for something. That Possum thing, perhaps?
It is odd, but I am almost (and I do mean almost) glad of its presence. From what I hear of the Rake, it does not tolerate proxies in its area. That means Hypnos and his minions will have to try just a bit harder to reach us here. It won't stop him from trying to break into our dreams, but it might just stop him from walking in here and starting another fistfight from hell.
On a related note, the dream changed last night. It was a very short dream, but... Hawk was there. He was wearing a mask, standing over a body. Or what remains of one. I have no idea what it could mean, but..Any dream with Hawk in a mask is not good.
