Noun (n) - The inner demon that can emerge when the body's defenses are weakened by the consumption of hard liquor. It posesses the host, causing destruction, terror, and mayhem until the alcohol has been flushed from the system. It has an insatiable appetite for broken glass. At this point the demon goes into remission until the next drinking binge.
1. Luke: But you said the Manimal betrayed and murdered my father.
Ben: He did. He was seduced by the darkest of rums...151. At that point he ceased to be Dave and became the Manimal. When that happened, the sober man who was your father was destroyed. He's more animal now than man. Drunk, twisted, and evil.
