Floating, azure cephalopods. They can be found at the Underground Labyrinth in Konami's 2008 Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia [Japanese title: Akumajo Dracula: Ubawareta Kokuin (Demon Castle Dracula: The Stolen Seal)] Nintendo Dual Screen (DS) video game. In addition to flying, a Polkir can "draw" a deadly swath of flames with the laser-like beam that emanates from its eye. This insidious creature feeds by attaching its two longest tentacles onto the cranium of an intelligent organism (usually humans) and then absorbs the most cherished memories from the brain. The subject will literally lose all recollection of the happiest moments of their life. Once devoured, there is no way to reclaim these digested memories--permanent partial amnesia is the result. Many drained victims experience severe depression/confusion afterwards and, in despair, may even commit suicide. Polkir have 155 hit points and are worth 124 experience points, each, when slain. They are particularly vulnerable to "slash" and "fire" based attacks. After destroying one of these single-eyed mass of tentacles, you might obtain the Fidelis Polkir glyph as a reward (which will allow Shanoa, the protagonist of the game, to summon friendly Polkir to aid her in battle).
The monsters Nominon and Polkir utilize the same game sprite, but differ in abilities/attributes and color (Nominon have reddish-orange flesh and a green eye).
Newsprint, Kleenex, white/hot glue, wire twist ties, nail polish, and acrylic paint.
(* The maximum height/width of this figure will vary depending on how the two, large, bending tentacles are positioned. For simplicity, said appendages were excluded from the measurements given below.)
3.3 cm/1.3 in. x 1.8 cm/0.7 in. (highest point x widest point)
Both of the longer tentacles are bendable.
