The blank wolf.
It follows me. Everywhere.
Every step I take, it takes another.
It follows my path, hunts down my actions.

It has no shape, no color, no presence.
It is antithesis to such things.

To even give it a name is contradictory to it's nature, for names are an aspect of existence.
And existence is contradictory to the blank wolf.

Where it steps past my foot falls, my foot prints vanish.

Where it passes where I've left my mark, it is as if it was never there.

I leave memories of myself where I've been with others, when it passes, I am not remembered.

Any object that I touch that I made with another, it will rip down to shreds.

Any accomplishment I've made, it'll unmake.

Blank wolf. Always following. Always hunting.
It never tires. It never falters. It never yields.

It follows me. Without beginning, and without mercy.

Blank wolf. It is not blank, nor a wolf. But no name fits it better.

It is a hunter, relentless, tireless, ruthless. It is not anything unto itself, it exists only to erase, it exists by erasing, only by erasing does it have presence at all.

No matter what I leave behind, no matter what I make, no matter whom I craft bounds or memories with, the blank wolf follows. And when it passes, those things are as if they never existed at all.

I keep thinking I've outrun it. Or I've evaded it. But the blank wolf remains. For when I dare to look back. I see nothing there. Not my foot prints. Not the marks I've left behind. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. As if I had never passed at all.

But I feel it. It knows me, and I know it.

And when my time has run it's course, when I lay down for the final rest, the blank wolf will make it last and ultimate kill, and it'll be as if I had never existed at all.

Blank wolf. Tireless. Relentless. Ruthless. Neither blank nor a wolf, but no name fits it better.    A unyielding hunter that leaves all as if it's prey had never been.

Like a companion it walks behind me, sometimes close, sometimes far, but never ceases, always coming.

Words I said forgotten. Words written fade. Images created dissolved. Ideas winked out.

Blank wolf. No name could be more fitting.

Everything I make unmade. Everything I do undone. Everything I know made meaningless. Everything I learn made empty. Blank.

Blank wolf. I leave these words. And then the blank wolf will cross here too. And they will be forgotten. As if I had never wrote them. Blank.

Blank Wolf.

If I could leave but one memory in this world after those who knew me were gone. If I could leave one note. One idea. One concept. One image. One word. One feeling.  I'd know the blank wolf had been denied it's kill.

But the blank wolf comes.

Blank Wolf.
All effort and all accomplishment return to nothing. The blank wolf will see to that.

Not sure if it works that way.

So this has finally been added to the Pony POV Group.

You know, I just had a crazy idea. What if the Blank Wolf fought against Rose Tyler from Doctor Who, after she had become the Bad Wolf? Would their powers prove to be equal yet opposite forces that cancel each other out?

They don't really come into the same context. It's like asking if Lina Inverse fought Darth Vader. 
Or Goku played Chess with Sherock Holmes.

They would become the next Entropy and Fauna Luster, and a universe would be born.

You came up with this critter as early as 2011? Cool.

The idea came to me when I saw just how many of my wiki edits were always removed on so many different wikis. It felt like some THING was following behind me erasing my traces.

Interesting. (And didn't know that you were doing Wiki-writing. What were they about?)

Lots of things. Can't remember now. Mostly character profiles on various fandom wikis.

Coffee Swirl: Oh, I know about Shining Armor and his issues; I was just curious why I saw something that looked like a wolf near my shop a couple of nights ago when nopony reported one.

Unicorn, "A lot of things get spoiled that were supposed to be reserved for the end, but with how time is moving elsewhere, things need to be pushed along to make things clearer for later parts."

Coffee Swirl: Oh, believe me, I'm not even going to try to figure out the massive headache that is Time. I'm just a mortal pony, with a very limited mind; puzzling out and making sense of Time is for things like you.

So where did you come up with this character? Is he related in any way to My Little Pony?

Yes, and I know this now. But I'm still not sure where you came up with the idea. Was it from Bleach, as one of the commenters suggested?

I don't know if you've seen the anime "bleach" but in one of the movies are these creatures called blanks and I pictured one shaped like a wolf following around the main characters. Cool poem. I think it's about death following people around but I'm not sure.

Thank you for calling this short creepy nothing cool.

It's more about leaving nothing behind.
