A sex craved unicorn who is out to kill in many ways. Book may be released in the future. HIATUS! is pronounced (Hi-Ay-Tus) which is always spoken in a shouting, heroic, manner and spelled in all capital letters. This unicorn has a 46 inch penis and has a feet licking fetish. Meeting HIATUS! may result in: Death, death, harder death, soft death, rape death, rape, or even EXTREME DEATH! which is when you are brought back as a spider, drowned in sperm, and then brought back to life as a zebra which will be chopped in half by HIATUS!'s pre-sharpened penis.
HIATUS! Must always be drawn releasing his sperm because if you were to take a photograph that is what you would see because HIATUS! has an unlimited sperm count.
Dave met HIATUS! and was lucky enough only to suffer the consequence of rape death.
