The simplified appearance of a Slaymate.


A Slaymate is a young child who has died because a parent or guardian has neglected their basic needs. The hatred and/or despair of the child sometimes is strong enough to bring back the child as a Slaymate. Most Slaymates are female, but it is not uncommon for boys to become Slaymates.

Once a child becomes a Slaymate, their skin turns an unnatural shade of pale, and they have an almost constant look of sadness. Otherwise they have the twisted appearance of a child.
