** The Crooked Man.

He feeds upon their heart and their life for as long as they would have lived, while the corrupted child is crowned king or queen...[[BlessedWithSuck of a world built out of his or her own nightmares]].

Eventually, the king or queen will grow old, the victim's life force will begin to fade, and the Crooked Man goes looking for another child that's prepared to have their unwanted siblings horribly murdered...[[KidsAreCruel and he's been doing this for]] '''[[KidsAreCruel centuries]].'''

Because adults don't adjust well to the shock, the recipients of this treatment are children, who generally spend the last tortured minutes of their lives running through a dark forest in an unfamiliar body before being shot dead, partially eaten, and their preserved remains hung from a wall.
