A creature that appears in nightmares.
A member of the Muppet species, this entity stalks the dreamer, perhaps with other Peacocks. This attitude displays a pack mentality, although it is unconfirmed if Peacocks hunt in packs.
The Peacock's physical description is best captured by the image of a bald, purple-skinned, green nosed, toothless, love child of Ernie, Grover, and Dr. Teeth with half-closed eyelids.
In the first stages of attack, the dreamer will be with acquaintances when the dreamer has to get a drink of water. Upon heading for the sink or drinking fountain, the floor will turn to ice, all acquaintances in the dream will begin to exit the area, leaving the dreamer alone. At this point, the Peacock will emit a laugh that mirrors exactly the laugh of Statue-Ernie in the episode of Sesame Street where Bert and Ernie explore a pyramid.
The final stage of attack will be when the prey (you, the dreamer) will attempt to run on the ice-floor. Attempting to make it to the exit, the dreamer will be blocked from the exit by the Peacock jumping in front of the dreamer. The Peacock will laugh in victory before swallowing the dreamer head-first similar to an anaconda.
This nightmare may repeat itself, although scenarios may differ. If the dreamer has the presence of mind to not get a drink, the Peacock will still hunt. The only defense against Peacocks is to stay in a group and not get a drink of water.
"Peacocks appeared last night. I managed to stay with the group, but at night, it's hard to stay with everyone. In the end I was walking down a path away from the group when the Peacock appeared. I knew then that it was all over."
