It has an expandable stomach — there is never enough of what it needs. It will keep growing bigger and more vicious, for as long as it is fed. It will cheat and steal, even from its own children. The Beast has a forked tongue. It will lie about everything. It cannot be killed, but it will kill its victim and hurt all those who love him.
