    tentacles

    100% this. How could there be a scary underwater survival game without tentacles? The fauna in Subnautica is already fairly diverse and imaginative, but... come on. Where are the tentacles?

    So you are proposing a creature that has a similar shape to the warper?
    Is this supposed to be the creature before it was tampered with by the Precursors?

    No, they're a different species. They weren't tampered with by the precursors. Their not warpers.

    "Physical Features: Bat-like head, Six orange eyes, Two rows of sharp teeth, Humanoid body, Thin long arms, Downwards facing warper-like claws, four Shortish] tentacles for legs, Dark Bluish Skin."
    Seems warper enough. I mean, look! ^

    I think that it would be a cool addition to the game given that it has the warper backstory as @Flanpan suggested.

    Okay. Let me answer what you're wrong about.
    1. Not all Humanoid Fauna have to be related to warpers.
    2. Thin Arms doesn't mean warper-like.
    3. I had a hard time describing the claws the NightStalker has so I used warper-like to describe them easily.
    4. Many Fauna have tentacles.
    5. NightStalkers cannot teleport.
    6. NightStalkers hide in dark Caves, warpers do not.
    Now, your kinda right (I forgot to add these to the main discussion)
    1. NightStalkers can somewhat understand Warper speech.
    2. NightStalkers translated speech reveal they rarely talk about the Precursors.
    3. NightStalkers have a 35% chance of being affected by Carar.

    Well, I going to say they are related to the Precursor in someway.

    Okay. Let me answer what you're wrong about.
    1. Not all Humanoid Fauna have to be related to warpers. Right.
    2. Thin Arms doesn't mean warper-like.Right again.
    3. I had a hard time describing the claws the NightStalker has so I used warper-like to describe them easily. At least say that
    4. Many Fauna have tentacles.Right 3X
    5. NightStalkers cannot teleport.Precursors modified them to teleport becoming warperd.
    6. NightStalkers hide in dark Caves, warpers do not. They COULD.
    Now, your kinda right (I forgot to add these to the main discussion)
    1. NightStalkers can somewhat understand Warper speech.
    2. NightStalkers translated speech reveal they rarely talk about the Precursors. Probably bc warpers are made by precursors.
    3. NightStalkers have a 35% chance of being affected by Carar. That belongs to the list up there.

    I'm going to remake this again later to hopefully clear up some confusion and errors. I'm sorry if this 1st remake of the Night Crawler was confusing or poorly written.
