The Legend of the McGill Edit
|“||The McGill hates kids that get stuck here— hates the sounds we make. It’ll tear out your tongue if it hears you talk, and rip out your lungs if it hears you pretending to breathe. They say the McGill is the devil’s own pet hound that chewed through its leash, and escaped. It couldn’t make it all the way to the living world, but it made it to here.||”|
–Lief on The McGill, Everlost, p. 34
Lief was the first one to speak of the McGill. When talking about Afterlights who passed through his forest, he said that they were always running from the McGill, saying that despite the lack of pain in Everlost, the McGill would figure out a way to make you suffer till the end of time. For Lief, the legend of the McGill was enough to keep him in the Dead Forest. He was convinced that, since no kids ever returned, all were eaten by the McGill.
Later on, Allie uses this legend to strike fear into Johnnie-O, claiming she's friends with the McGill in order to avoid being sent to the center of the Earth. Purple-puss echoed part of Lief's tale, asserting that "no one sees the McGill and lives."
Once entering Everlost, he fell to the center of the Earth.
After years of imprisonment, he climbed to the surface through sheer will. Something he thought only a monster could do, so that is what he became.
The McGill, The one true monster of Everlost.
Once free, he began his conquest as McGill. To find a 'thousand cowardly souls' to revive his own.
Later he is chased by a mob, and rides the diving horse after Allie. After catching up with her, he rescues Allie from sinking to the center of the earth and they become close friends. Later, they fall in love.
