There is a ghost capable of possessing people. It doesn't need a body to survive but prefers it. The faceless can't exist if there are too many humans in the vicinity or in the rain. Every night it just scares the kids, possessing the kids and showing himself to other kids. The adults see shadows at times but it just doesn't appear to every one at the same time. It slows drives people insane forcing them to kill themselves. There is no increase or decrease in its power with every death. No way to kill it or get rid of it. It is always there. It will always be there. It slowly drives people insane, constantly appearing to more people. There is no escape, no holy book that can he read to it, no exorcism that can be performed. It roams freely from one body to another.
