Monster character design

This monster is a small, anxious creature named Grotto. Grottoes are a cave-dwelling species that complete its entire life cycle in a cave, but can only survive in above-ground habitats. They suffer from blindness and lack of pigmentation. Through evolution, these creatures developed a self-illuminating external organ. Grottoes are exposed to minimal amounts of food and their slow metabolisms permit them to conserve nutrition for long periods of time.
