The Unanswered Question of “Why am I here? Why did I come here?” and the concept of “I am not why I am.” A creature of meaninglessness, meaningless inquiry, removing causal meaning from a situation and feeding off of it.

Whydigos can be seen in various places, particularly areas with treasure or monsters that the party may want to acquire or kill.  By consuming the boss, switch, key, or the treasure it removes the reason the party went into the dungeon in the first place which leads to moments of meaninglessness and forces the characters to reflect on said meaninglessness.

I really like the piece, the head is super cool looking. But I can’t help but read his name as “why did I go” and I just imagine this dude walking around a party trying to not be awkward while thinking of that question over and over again.

"Why'd I go" is on point. If you happened to see the comment I posted earlier it kinda consumes the reason for doing things, leading to the inevitable "Why did I even come here?" type questioning. Along with other such things.

I saw yours after I posted mine. I really like how you phrased “removing casual meaning from a space”. It makes me think of the ancient ruins of our own world. Of all the time, effort, blood, sweat and tears was poured into creating meaning in their physical world. Yet for many ruins all meaning has been overgrown and weathered leaving only the vague notion that there was meaning at one point. Even almost all of earths life can’t even begin to understand the meaning between the small mound of stone built by pink apes and the mountains of stone towering to the sky built by Mother Nature. Cool art and cooler ideas!

Thank you! You have some really interesting ideas with this creature and concept. Since human structures range from “deep world defining temples built in reverence of the very Gods themselves” to “I started placing stones day and never stopped because it t was fun” I think there’s a lot to play around with when it comes to ruins and dungeons and what they represent to the world they’re in.
