As a person's life is measured, sewn, cut, & weaved by the gods there are bits & scraps left over. These demons from the Outer Darkness grab & feed on them. They feed very well. The stitchers grab any bits of flesh, inter dimensional flotsam, & what have you to sew on to their bodies.
  They exist as planar entities half in this universe & half someplace else. They occasional flicker from the negative planar energy coursing through their bodies. Physical attacks only do half damage to them. Their eyes are alight with the hunger they constantly feel.
 Each stitcher is armed with a set of needles created from the bones of forgotten gods & lost demons. These needles can pierce force fields given time. The needles only do 1d3 points of damage but the wounds they leave may worry a person causing someone to lose one Constitution point per game unless they are healed with super science or psionic means. The thread they use is half psionic & half real composed of the dead dreams of devils & the Outer Gods. It is mostly unbreakable accept for a few things sharp enough to cut it. It may pass through most materials with ease.
 Stitchers are known to appear before a planetary apocalypse in the final days of a planet.They often hunt down the local populace for sport & torment them with the known of the fate of their world. This adds sauce to the meat for them.
 Stitchers are very very quick & may attack twice per round with their claws or their wickly sharp needles. On a successful hit they may reel in a victim to themselves. This may be done instead of making another attack
 Stitchers hunt in packs of 1d6  monsters & often move through the shadows of urban areas unseen. They often haunt areas of tragedy & disaster. These demons can be found near hospitals, doomed colonies, & areas of interstellar calamity.
 These creatures have a particular hatred of the Astral Raider & the two groups have clashed numerous times in some outer alien hells. The Crystal Sword of the astral raiders, psi swords, & space swords may cut though their threads 20% of the time during combat.
These demons desire for the life force & destiny of a person's skein & hunger for the measure of destiny given over to that breathed into one when they are created. They have been with mankind since the beginning & will be with him till the end.
