The Creeper (Creeperus Suicidus) is a character from Ancient Minecratian Theology.
Creeper actually refers to an entire race, who were the decendents of Creeper.
The legend goes that when the terrain was fist generated by Notch, there was Steve, and Creeper. Steve and Creeper were not generated in the same chunk, or even the same thousand chunks. Steve first created an axe and a hoe with which to start a house and a farm. The Creeper on the other hand, began to use TMI to get gunpowder and mix it with sand to create a bomb. He would place that bomb in water and don a protective suit to be blasted up into the heavens, for a cheap thrill. When the terrain had been generated, Notch had sent his 10 commandments, one of which read, "Thou shalt not use mods". As punishment for breaking this commandment, Notch turned The Creeper into a hideous 4-legged green beast. This made the Creeper very sad. Much time later, he gave birth through an eggsack, and the creeper race started. Many years later, Steve's desendents (all named Steve) met the creepers. Desperate for a hug, the Creepers ran to hug Steve, but found the prospect to exciting, and ignit the gunpowder within them, genetic leftovers from TMI. To this day, creepers still haunt the earth with a perpetual frown, waiting for Steve to hug them.
