Appearing as a cross between a bigfoot and troll, the Grafton Monster is a hairless, aggressive bigfoot that fears loud noises and consumes mostly meat; it is named after and most well known for its appearances near Grafton, West Virginia. Although this species is concentrated near this small town of a little over 500 people, the population has spread to other nearby, dense woodlands that encompass the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad and the Tygart Valley River. The Grafton can live in any densely wooded, temperate habitat; they have been spotted as far north as Michigan and as far southeast as Virginia.

I'm a pretty quiet person from Southern Ohio that loves monsters, animals, stories, and history. I moved to Fairbanks, AK to study art and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2017, afterward moving to & working in El Paso, TX. Currently, I reside in Lucasville, OH.
I enjoy outdoor activities - like hiking, kayaking, and sightseeing - reading, drawing, throwing pottery, sculpting, playing video games, and playing dungeons and dragons with my friends. ~Kristen Puckett - Appalachian Illustrator, Folklorist, & Ceramicist
