- Judgement Bird
Judgement Bird (O-02-62), also know as "Long/Tall Bird", is a tall bird Abnormality with long skinny limbs and neck, with a spherical body covered with black feathers along his arms/wings. His head is covered by bandages and he has 2 small white wings of red tips on the sides of his head. His neck holds a golden balance, which tips to one side.
His ability will trigger after his Qliphoth counter have reached zero. The counter might decrease by 1 after a normal state result or guaranteed when in a bad state. He will breach once the ability triggers, roaming through the facility aimlessly. When an employee is in the same room as his, Judgement Bird will stop to hold his golden balance for a moment, and after a gleam, random employees in the same room will be marked with a golden balance above them.
The employees under Judgement Bird's balance will stop all actions and stand still in their current spot. Judgement Bird will walk towards them, and when reaching a marked employee, he will raise them up with a pole, hanging them, killing them instantly. Judgement Bird cannot attack or deal damage.
He used to be a sentinel of the Black Forest, where he was living with Big Bird and Punishing Bird; after hearing a prophecy, and also being a fair judge, he used his golden balance to measure the sins of the creatures to protect the forest and keep the peace. But someone said, "What if the scales don't tip to any direction?". He became worried, so he made that the balance only tip to one direction, to get the result in any circumstance. He used to have sparkling eyes which he could use to see through everything, but at one point, he gave his eyes to Big Bird to help him protect the forest. Long Bird covered his own eyes with ragged bandages, but still wanted to protect the forest, and after some time, he began to lose his glossy feathers due to the sunlight. But as time progressed, the forest where he was living started to become saturated by darkness, bad rumors, and daily fights. As a solution, the three birds merged their strengths to become a new bird to protect the forest, but it caused chaos instead, making all the creatures to leave in fear of the forest. Is unknown when they decided to separate from themselves.
At the end, he was just left with an unfair balance, which always tips to one side; probably because of the darkness and regret. He became Judgement Bird afterwards and never stopped judging.
Where Judgement Bird was found and how he arrived to the facility is unknown.
