They are those who devour the very embrace they seek... Gummies are commonly found roaming around in the alternate Blackhaven's Orphan wing. Gummies where once children, but in this corrupted demonic form appears much larger in stature than they once were.

Attracted to a familiarity that is completely lost in this world, they pursue their victims reaching out their arms ahead as their larger pair arms propels them forward swiftly in a desperate chase. If caught a gummy will grasp tightly, it's giant maw will bite into and eat away at it's victims flesh.

Based on their behavior, a gummy is believed to be a twisted manifestation of longing likely deriving from a child who died alone on the day of the fire.
