I have experienced the greatest terror. I have experienced the greatest terror. I have experienced the greatest terror. I see his eyes when I close mine. They are hollow. Black. They saw me and pierced me. His wet hand. I will not sleep.
~ A journal entry from 1880 detailing the Rake.

As I prepare to take my life, I feel it necessary to assuage any guilt or pain I have introduced through this act. It is not the fault of anyone other than him. For once I awoke and felt his presence. And once I awoke and saw his form. Once again I awoke and heard his voice, and looked into his eyes. I cannot sleep without fear of what I might next awake to experience. I cannot ever wake. Goodbye.
~ 1964 suicide note.

We've got some kind of a problem, because that thing is dangerous!
~ Evan Jennings to Alex Koval about the Rake.

It will infect us all.
~ Jacob Murphy about the Rake before he slits his own throat in front of a young Ben and Ashley in the 2018 film based on the original Creepypasta story.

History Edit

In late 2005, an anonymous poster on 4chan's /b/ board started a thread with the post "hey /b/ lets make a new monster". Naturally, there were many ideas, but one stood out, and another poster created a new thread based on this idea. The thread started with this post:

"Alright, this is for the people who like the three-eyes, no apparent mouth, pale skin one. Here's what we've got so far: Humanoid, about six feet tall when standing, but usually crouches and walks on all fours. It has very pale skin. The face is blank. As in, no nose, no mouth. However, it has three solid green eyes, one in the middle of its forehead, and the other two on either side of its head, towards the back. Usually seen in front yards in suburban areas. Usually just watches the observer, but will stand up and attack if approached. When it attacks, a mouth opens up, as if a hinged skull that opens at the chin. Reveals many tiny, but dull teeth."

This eventually formed into what we now know as "The Rake".

The Rake went through many design and name changes during its beginning. One of the more prevalent names was "Operation Crawler". One of the earliest appearances of the story was posted to the personal blog[1] of Something Awful user Brian Somerville on July 20th, 2006. It was the first story in a series entitled "Horror Theater," but Somerville does not indicate if the text was taken from another website or if it was written specifically for that blog post. According to the mythology, firsthand accounts of The Rake has been described as early as in the 12th century and documented for the first time in 1691. The story also alleges that strange events in the northeastern U.S. involving the creature led to brief local media interest in the summer of 2003, but most written accounts of the creature have been mysteriously destroyed since.
