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
