The Flesh is one of the fourteen main Entities. It is thought to be the newest of them, born from the fear of animals bred for meat.
In humans, it manifests as strange bodies being twisted, reshaped, and butchered. It often employs Christian imagery, such as a cannibalistic version of Eucharist and using a gnostic church as its ritual site.

Gertrude had 8 years to stop the ritual, and it helped her understand that conventional explosives could disrupt rituals.
