The rake is described as a naked man, or a hairless dog. It’s called The Rake because of it’s large rake-like claws. It brutally murders, disembowels, and tears apart people’s body when they sleep. A suicide note have said that they’ve felt the Rake’s presence before, while sleeping. Then they heard it. Then they were paralyzed as they looked into it’s eyes. They then killed themselves, in fear that the next time they slept they would be awoken by the Rake. Some accounts said that people screamed “THE RAKE” when they were being ripped to pieces. Knowing this, it can be assumed that the Rake attacks people who know who he is, or that he’s visited people before. The earliest known account is below:
“He came to me in my sleep. From the foot of my bed I felt a sensation. He took everything. We must return to England. We shall not return here again at the request of the Rake.”
People have also reported being stalked by the Rake. Slowly torturing them. Making sure they can’t fall asleep out of fear. And when they do fall asleep, he kills them.
