They each try a variety of methods to convince the Monk to leave and nothing seems to sway him.
One evening the Badger created an illusion in which an army of demons surround the temple and shout that if the Monk doesn’t flee they will eat his flesh.
The Monk exits the temple and expresses his unhappiness with these tricks and chases the “demons” away with a torch. Where the demons once stood a badger remained. The Monk threw the torch and singed the tail of the Badger.
This was the last time the Badger attempted to trick the Monk into leaving his temple.
This Demon is one of the Demons that the Badger created in order to scare away the Monk.
He appears in Sandman: Dream Hunters # 1, on page 14, in panel 4.
Lukas did a fantastic job with this portrait. Each time I look at this portrait I keep expecting to see someone’s face inside the Demon’s mouth.
