Horla: Secret Origin by SharksDen Horla: Secret Origin by SharksDen
Don't mind if it's deviated Maupassant's novel. This is a reboot version:

Horla is a spirit organism parasites in human culture.
No one knows where Horla come from, but in the hosts' dreams they often arrive an serene place called "Green Jungle" .
That place has gone.
Horla stray across the vast spaces, come to Earth, can never leave again.
In its decline, it found the Earth's material biological continue their spirits through reproduction and learning.
Horla turned into a parasite.
It chooses a human possessed, driven the host fanatically create any form of cultural objects.
People hidden implied meaning in the words, Horla hidden body structure in words.
The right person who saw the cultural object will be possessed of collecting all the former host's works.
When the threshold quantity exceed, Horla resurrection.
Unexpected happens, the host's soul resurrected together with Horla resurrection, perpetual succession.
Each generation host inherits the spirits of all the hosts before, in the process of growing to form a new spirit.

Each objects has a different Horla fragments (abilities and memories) that former hosts formed.
The resurrected host's soul only know his own memory part that the new host had found. He (or they) must seeking more objects to complete "themself".
All hosts were trying to collect all the objects.
History river is so long, no one can complete collection of all objects now.
The "right person" are very rare, not each person can become host. Horla hosts often Interrupted in history. Most objects were ageing, missing, damaging, destroyed during this time, but always get saved at a critical moment by the new host turned up.

Horla is not Tingler, it's just imitate the Tingler shape, rests in the spine. In fact, it can be turned into any shape.
Each host has some small differences, their horla form are not exactly the same . Someone's looks like an awful conqueror worm.
Some host misunderstood Horla, he fought against himself, became a madman.
Some host did not know Horla existence in his whole life, he believes he is a sorcerer.
...
Horla will prevent any possible threats harm its host.
Horla assimilate feelings as food, particularly like to swallow fear, scared, frightened.
Horla's defense impregnable.
Horla afraid of fire, or any high-energy.
...

From my "The Horror Planet" world setting, the earth in another parallel universe, all monsters, aliens, legend creatures and villains are real.
Horla is an important role of the "Outlanders". At later days, I will use a series pictures to explain what can Horla do, how it works. And other related roles. such as Abercrombie the zombie dog, Ligeia the Blackcat, Edward Scissorsmind... and Lee's Vampire team, Cushing the guardian of Tindalos, Steele the Shaman Witch, Prince Lugosi, Librarian Boris, Grave keeper Chaney, Giantess Nancy, Gillman The Deep One, Dr. Fly, Shogglob... do not expect, too much unrealistic expectations with no much idle time~

In French, Guy de Maupassant had written a book to this creature. I have read that when I'm thirteen, and re-read today in comics-books

Honestly everything in the description just went right over my head. Think I'm probably a bit too mentally young to understand it. Maybe if I had kept reading novels and books. Instead of (in order of how much I read) comics [manga, graphic novels, manhwa], books (non fictional. Most recent one is Steampunk Bible.), novels.

I love the though picture!

"Someone says it is an extra-terrestrial organism arrived on earth to subjugate and overwhelm mankind. Someone believe it is just the essence of the dark unconscious of the whole human race." -> Some say that it is an extra-terrestrial organism that arrived on Earth to subjugate and overwhelm mankind. Some believe it is just the essence of the dark unconscious of the whole human race.

"There are some people lived during different times in history have excessive common points than it could be." -> There are people who lived in different eras in history who have an excessive amount of commonality that are more than coincidence.

"I traveled around the world collecting and research their relics found a weird lasting existence quality hidden among the art of human culture." -> I traveled around the world collecting and researching their relics to find a strange, lasting quality of existence hidden in the art of human cultures.

"I continued the work like all predecessors, but using new technology. Only the right person can perceive its code, being a host." -> Like my predecessors, I continued its work, using new technology. Only the right person, the host, can perceive its code.

"I hope that one day someone will see the truth behind human art. See numerous indescribable terrors from outspace are hiding behind our mortal world all along." I hope that one day someone will see the truth behind human art: the numerous indescribably terrors from outer-space have been hiding inside our mortal world all along.

"A few years later after I'm gone, the man came. He was much younger than I imagined." -> A few years after I was gone, the new host came. He was much younger than I had imagined.

Sorry if some of the edits are incorrect. I was unsure on what you meant for a couple.

Also, great idea and great art!

Oh~ Thank you so much! For correct my error, my friend!~~~(also thank you for typing so much;))

Misunderstand a bit, the right person means may become a new host, when Malloy came to saw the portrait he was still the right person:)

vtas Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Np! And I see what you mean! If you keep that translation, though, it can mean that the right person came and became the host after seeing the picture, since Vincent is narrating from a future where he already knows that the boy is the new host, so you can have him describe the boy as "the new host." Of course that is up to you :3

Yes, You said right, I think I just want to highlight "the right person" is very precious resource, Horla resurrection rarely. So I use this phrase. :) Still very appreciate your explanation! :)
