Tooth Fairy
You put your tooth under your pillow excitedly; greedy for the prize in the morning. Maybe it's just some spare change. Maybe it's a toy of some sort. What do you care as long as you get it?
You sleep.
When you wake up, there's a shiny half-dollar next to your head. Lifting your pillow, you see no sign of your tooth. However, you do notice some wet spots on your bedsheets and carpet.
You don't care.
Over the years, you lose teeth and trade them for gifts. Your tooth is always gone in the morning; your giftalways on your pillow or nightstand. The wet spots always there.
You get older.
You have few baby teeth left. You barely get anything special as a gift for the tooth. You stop spotting the wet blotches. One night, you've just lost your very last baby tooth. It's puny, but surprisingly well-cared for, unlike some of your adult teeth. You look it over, you shrug.
You throw it away.
You awake, drooling, light-headed, groggy. All you hear is crunching and a sucking sound. Your whole chin is soaking wet and warm. You manage to lift one heavy arm and wipe at it.
It's sticky.
You groan and the crunching stops. Blinking, eyes struggling to focus, you see a dark shape on your carpet.
"Dog. Quit it. Get out." You mumble, but it sounds wrong. Why can't you stop drooling? What's that awful taste? Why can't you feel your mouth? The crunching noise begins again.
Blood.
Your brain registers the taste and you begin to spit and cough. God, what's happening? Bolting upright, you twist and flick the switch on your lamp.
You're covered in it.
Your own blood drenches your pajama shirt, your hands, your pillow. Gasping for breath, you bring your hands to your mouth.
Gone.
Your teeth, every one, is missing. Only bloody sockets remain. Becoming faint, eyes blurring, you roll to face the door and your dog. Perhaps your dog can bring some stability to your faltering sanity.
Nope.
What's sitting, cross-legged, on your floor is definitely not your dog. It has no eyes, only a long, smooth forehead that shifts from bone and flesh to a thin metallic covering. Two small slits sit slightly below where eye sockets should be, above an impossibly large mouth. Drool drips from it's jaw and plops onto your carpet, leaving a wet stain.
Teeth.
Cradled in the folds of its cloak are your teeth. It picks a molar up, sniffs it. Runs it's long, black tongue against it. Pops it into it's mouth like an M&M and sucks away.
Sick.
Your stomach flops and dinner's spaghetti is suddenly pushing at your throat for escape. You tumble from your bed and the thing tilts its head at you. You see your tooth being run against its tongue.
You gag.
It crunches down and as it chews, it examines your remaining teeth in its pile. It picks up an incisor with a nasty cavity. It sniffs it, shakes its head while letting out a snort of disgust, and tosses it next to four other teeth with cavities.
It stands.
It pockets your leftover teeth and glides to your garbage. It plucks your very last baby tooth from the can. Puny, but surprisingly well-cared for; unlike some of your adult teeth. It sniffs and coos happily. It places your tooth onto its tongue and swallows it whole. It turns to you. In a pleasant, almost soothing voice, it murmurs, "All lost teeth belong to me."
You sleep.

Your pet has changed into a Nightmare Ghostly! (6/14/11)
Thank you, Addi and mumo for his potion! ♥️

Synopsis
Maw is based roughly off of the tooth fairies from Hellboy II (in that he eats calcium, which can be found in bone).
Basically, he's an entity that's been around for ages, and when you put your tooth under your pillow, its not so you can get some spare change, it's because if you don't it's considered an insult to Maw. If you insult Maw, he will devour all of your teeth.

Now, Maw has no eyes, just two small holes for sniffing out calcium, and a very large mouth. His teeth are rodent-like (large front teeth, top and bottom, with flat molar-like teeth surrounding it).
No one knows how he came into being, they just know he's very, very real.

Maw isn't the only tooth fairy to exist, there are plenty, all bearing different markings and characteristics. Some dedicate their lives to a certain area, some to a certain family. They are virtually invisible (to the untrained eye) and only feed at night.

Tooth fairies do not leave change or gifts in exchange for teeth. Humans started that tradition. The fairies simply take what sustains them for life.
Offering the tooth is considered a blessing to the giver and the fairy itself. Fairies cannot eat teeth from a deceased persons, nor can "human" tooth fairies eat animal teeth. (There are different types of tooth fairies, like there are different types of dogs).

Maw prefers molars and the occasional wisdom tooth compared to normal teeth. Also, cavities enrage him, for he doesn't get enough calcium from a rotted tooth.
