HW052 Jersey Devil is a HorrorClix 1.5 monster designed by BLG as part of the HowlingWood custom set.


Albeit a sober Quaker in appearance, Mother Leeds, of Burlington, New Jersey, was strongly suspected of witchcraft; and suspicion became certainty when, in 1735, a child was born to her. The old women who had assembled on that occasion, as they always do assemble whenever there is death or birth or marriage, reported that while it was like other human creatures at first, the child changed, under their very eyes. It began to lose its likeness to other babies, and grew long and brown; it presently took the shape of a dragon, with a snake-like body, a horse's head, a pig's feet, and a bat's wings. This dreadful being increased in strength as it gained in size, until it exceeded the bulk and might of a grown man, when it fell on the assemblage, beating all the members of the party, even its own mother, with its long, forked, leathery tail. This despite being weakened, it arose through the chimney and vanished, its harsh cries mingling with the clamor of a storm that was raging out-of-doors.
-Charles M. Skinner, American Myths and Legends (1903)

Sightings of this monster, which supposedly haunts the pine barrens of New Jersey, predate the founding of the United States, and have continued into modern times. Since the sightings become more frequent during times of strife, one would assume that we are ripe for a reappearance...
