First of all, a single witness account doesn’t prove that cheneque and Watchers’ “fairy” is the same thing. There are similarities, though: geography of origin, underground dwelling, humanoid body, wings and bad attitude. The difference comes only from the height: my friend says that his cheneque was about 18 inch tall, while the specimen of Marzulli (which he had seen) is about 7 inch. My friend saw wings, but he didn't see it fly. The thing hopped up the stairs instead of straight walk.
"Their torment was like a torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.” Rev. 9:9
That is, paralysis, I’d reckon. I’ve never been stricken by a scorpion myself, but I believe that its venom has neuro-paralytic effect; Strong enough to paralyze a lizard or a small mammal. Cheneque comes to paralyze large mammals, i.e. us.
One thing which I didn't touch in the previous post is the purpose of these scapulopteric creatures - fairies, cheneques, locusts of St. John:
“They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have a seal of God On their forehead.” Rev. 9:4.
This way St. John clarifies that the thing which he calls “locust” is quite different from the herbivorous locusts of common type, including the locust in Book of Exodus.
“And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon , but in Greek he has the name Apollyon.” Rev. 9:11.
So, no matter how demonic (in a common sense) this thing looks: long teeth, leathery wings, elongated elfin ears, it is commanded by an God’s angel, not the Devil. So, I guess, those of us who have a right seal shouldn't worry. Except for zoologists: they ought to register a new kind of species:
Locusta St. Iohannicus of a new family Apollyonidae.
