|The Hungry One|
|Appearances|| St. Abraham
The Hungry One is a common monster encountered in St. Abraham. It is the first monster that Jay Donovan encounters. It is first seen devouring the corpse of a librarian in the Library. It is one of the weakest monsters in the game, along with the Martyr and the Twinhead.
It also makes an appearance in Toshiko Crash-Up as a summon for Needleman.
The Hungry One is a 4 1/2 foot spherical creature. It is flesh-colored, and appears to have spots of dry blood on it. It sports two very skinny arms with 4 clawed fingers. Its legs are similar to those of a dinosaur, and they feature 3 clawed toes. Their most obvious feature is the large number of mouths covering almost every inch of their bodies. The mouths are constantly moaning and opening and closing.
Hungry Ones are fairly weak enemies. They attack by attempting to gnaw on various parts of Jay's body. They don't deal very much damage though. They can be killed with 4 melee attacks or 2 Handgun shots. Despite their weak strength, they can be relatively tough to deal with in packs.
They are relatively slow and easy to kill. Upon being killed, their various mouths all vomit up blood.
The Hungry One is first encountered in the Library while 2 of them are devouring the corpse of a librarian. It can later be encountered in the Kitchen, the Nursery, the Prison Ward, and the Dark Lobby.
The Hungry One appears as a summon for Needleman. By pressing the Green button without a direction, Needleman will summon The Hungry One, which will stagger forward, immoblize any opponent it touches, and begin gnawing on them for 2 seconds.
Hungry Ones symbolize various eating disorders, but mostly they represent gluttony in general. Their frail arms and legs represent anorexia, and the fact that they vomit blood upon dying represents bulemia.
