The Basement Entity was a creature created when Thaddeus Micawb attempted to create a playmate for his Frankenstein-esque dog Patchwork. After the Ghostbusters found the creature, they were able to send it back to its home dimension. [1]

HistoryEdit

Thaddeus Micawb attempted to create a playmate for his first creation, Patchwork. Instead, he opened a doorway into another dimension and let a paranatural being cross into the physical plane. [2] [3] According to the rest of the Micawb Family, it was never seen but always heard, in the form of earth shaking roars and rumbles in the night. They tried to get rid of it on their own but to no avail. Eventually, they hired the Ghostbusters under the premise of a haunted house case.

The Ghostbusters tracked the entity to a hidden passage where they came upon a large set of locked double doors. Thaddeus tried to stop them and admitted he was responsible. However, Patchwork scratched the door and the entity burst through the door. It nearly ate Slimer and Winston Zeddemore before Egon Spengler realized the entity could absorb only a preset amount of blast streams from the Proton Pack. [4] The build up of power caused it to implode and return to its home dimension.

ClassificationEdit

When Egon measured for readings with the P.K.E. Meter, he got an immediate high reading but of a type he never saw before. [5] Notably, very strange readings. The entity is immune to Proton Streams but can absorb a limited amount of it before being dispersed. It also had the power to summon minion spirits remotely and created Book Chompers on two separate occasions and a Gargoyle. [6]

It is a completely alien lifeform not from the physical plane. [7] [8] Since it is noted to be a Paranatural Entity, it may be an outlier of the standard classification system (animated).
