Fraidy Cat is a alternate dimensional mental-parasite that infected sickly August Means when she was a child, and fed off of her emotions.

She manipulated August into getting her hometown of Maiden Springs to accept Fraidy as a guardian figure, only asking for children in exchange. She used the sacrificed children as additional hosts, so if anything happened to August she wouldn't fade away.[1]



  • Dependency: Fraidy, like all parasites, can live only off of the attention of a single human or multiple humans. If she's ignored long enough, like when a child grows up, she will slowly die as if she was never there.
