Location: your choice
Action: This is an elemental, which in [SETNAME] means it's a manifestation of fears, anxieties, or nightmares that incorporates animal elements. This particular elemental is a huge creature "can smell thoughts." How to represent this is up to you. One idea is to show an enormous creature that resembles a two-faced eyeless wolf-eel covered with strange, arcane patterns. It "swims" along the ground -- the ground underneath it magically becomes fluidic to allow its passage, whether it's rocks, dirt, or whatever.
Focus: the "thought-seeking" elemental
Mood: surreal, creepy, cold
Notes: All elementals should feel transitory or intangible somehow, as though they're "just passing through" reality.

Luckily, the artist's misunderstanding led to a cooler-looking creature. Serendipity!
