"Don't look away, just keep your eyes on it. Contain it in your sight."
- The Burrowing Heaven's Entry

The Burrowing Heaven (O-04-72) is an Abnormality similar in form to a tree, having a stalk coming from the floor and two limbs/wings-like extremities that branch into minor parts. Its main body is of red color. In the junction where the three main parts meet, it has a yellow eye with a red iris, as well as smaller eyes on other parts of its body.

Ability[edit | edit source]

Its ability triggers when its QliphothCounterIcon.png Qliphoth Counter reaches 0. Its QliphothCounterIcon.png Qliphoth Counter is reduced by 1 every 10 seconds when it is off screen while working with it. This only includes the Abnormality, not the containment. Besides reducing the QliphothCounterIcon.png Qliphoth Counter, it will also force the WorkSuccessIcon.png Success Rate to be 0%, making the work only produce NE-boxes. Its QliphothCounterIcon.png Qliphoth Counter can be increased by 1 when getting a NormalResult.png Normal result or by 2 when getting a GoodResult.png Good result.

When the QliphothCounterIcon.png Qliphoth Counter is depleted, The Burrowing Heaven will breach with its 'wings' extended and 800 HPIcon.png HP. If there is an employee in the containment room, the abnormality will instantly kill them. The Abnormality doesn't attack when it is on camera and only moves when 3 seconds pass out of camera. If it isn't on camera, it will teleport to a random room with employees in them (Priority to Agents). If the room that it left had employees or other entities, it will inflict a heavy amount of BlackDamageTypeIcon.png Black Damage (150) to all the targets in there. If it kills employees, it will leave their 'fruits' after screams; similar entities of itself will hold different parts of the dead employee on their branches. These entities aren't dangerous. It will usually teleport into the middle of the main rooms and near the sides of the other rooms, like hallways.

It will remain breaching until suppressed or the day ends.

Origin[edit | edit source]

Its origin is currently unknown.

Details[edit | edit source]

The Burrowing Heaven responds to the four works in order of best to worst: Attachment.png Attachment, Repression.png Repression, Insight.png Insight and Instinct.png Instinct.

Like all Abnormalities, its energy output is determined by the number of PE Boxes (Positive Enkephalin boxes) at the end of the interaction.

The Burrowing Heaven's emotional state is divided into 3 sections: BadResult.png Bad, NormalResult.png Normal, and GoodResult.png Good. Completing 0-12 E Boxes will cause it to feel BadResult.png Distressed, completing 13-20 will cause it to feel NormalResult.png Normal, and 21-24 will make it's mood result GoodResult.png Happy. Its usual waiting time after a task is around 15 seconds. Its QliphothCounterIcon.png Qliphoth Counter is 3.

Story[edit | edit source]

The Burrowing Heaven's encyclopedia portrait

  • "A thorny Abnormality that feeds on the gaze of others and sometimes stretches its wings."
  • "Don't look away, just keep your eyes on it.
  • It lives inside your gaze. 
  • The containment is but a facade. 
  • Contain it in your sight. 
  • Blinking is okay. 
  • It will tolerate such a brief moment of disruption. 
  • However, once it recognizes that it lost your attention and focus… 
  • It will spread its wings. Yes, wings. 
  • As if to praise a long-forgotten god, its lean, bloody wings will stretch and cover the whole corridor. 
  • The wings still bear fruit, using fresh corpses as food. 
  • If it still fails to gain your attention, the stalks will pierce the facility and grow toward a sunny spot. 
  • Like an angel, its wings will reach the skies and extend toward the ground, eventually blocking the sun out. 
  • But there is still hope. 
  • When you finally turn your eyes and bring it within your cognizance… 
  • It will return to this deep, dark subterranean area. 
  • That is, if you managed to survive by then.."
  • "That's what a gaze is. Attention.
  • An invisible string that connects us. 
  • Sole focus. 
  • Do not come here, as there is no place for you to rest. 
  • Is this what you wanted to see? 
  • When your tears dry up at last, tell me your answer.."

Flavour Text[edit | edit source]

  • "The Burrowing Heaven lives inside the target’s eyes."
  • "The Burrowing Heaven grows thorns aimed for heaven inside <name>’s vision."

Trivia[edit | edit source]
