🌙"Welcome to Midnight Moth Mondays.🌠 Live from Point Pleasant, West Virginia, it's me, Aurelian, your friendly neighborhood Moth Man."🦋 This image, lighting & all, has been in my head for a very long Time. I am SO, so happy the visuals turned out exsctly as I imagined, especially in traditional!
Aurelian began as a Twitch handle I headcanoned for the psychic Indrid Mothman, but I decided the concept was too much fun, so I reworked the idea into a Mothman persona of sorts, if you will. (Aurelian is an old-fashioned name for an expert in moths & butterflies.) Aurelian is the Twitch name for a mysterious humanoid man who seems to stream himself speedrunning various video games with ease. His IP address hails from Point Pleasant, WV, where numerous Mothman sightings have occurred. Many of Aurelian's streamers have noted that he takes inspiration from the cryptid legend in a unique way for a net persona. In reality, the runner is the unnamed Moth Man, of an otherwordly race of moth folk that are rumored to be numerous. He openly states that he was in Point Pleasant during the sightings, but concedes it's also very possible to have spotted another mothfolk. Aurelian uses low quality webcam footage to keep viewers guessing if he's a well-made puppet or a guy gifted at making prosthetics/special effects. He took up speedrunning thanks to his buglike reflexes. He prefers running difficult games with lots of random elements, but he also enjoys Nintendo games, both casually & for runs. 💖💜💙 Aurelian ought to be pen pals with Antoine, if and when that becomes its own original thing. 🦋🔮🦋 LINKS: HTTPS://www.patreon.com/jackmcalisterart
