on a galactic scale
The Destroyer is an allegedly immortal and invincible being that absorbs planets into its huge, shadowed maw. Its appearance is said to be that of "...a huge, red planet with a gigantic mouth several countries wide, stretching across it. The mouth has long, sharp teeth, and a tongue made of pure shadow." It is said to have no eyes, save that of a single giant eyeball in its core. The creature's ultimate goal is to devour the universe.
The first recorded sighting of the Destroyer was by a Helic who saw it flying over his spaceship and devouring a nearby star. The Helic wrote this about it:
"The devil flew over our ship today... I shall never forget how he looked down at me with that blind face... the abomination's mouth opened and I saw the hideous creatures insides. In it was an eyeball, a single eyeball, hovering on a throne so high it was impossible to see the top..."
The Destroyer has had quite a few communicants over the years. Here are several recent ones:
"What's that? They're firing on us? Okay then, Commander, fire back on them. What's that, Commander? It's destroying your fleet? Hahahaha... too bad for you."
