Physiology[edit | edit source]
Neglectern is a large lamp-like spirit. Its body is a vaguely-conical structure, similar to a typical lampshade. The top and botom of the lamp has purple rims, which the main shade itself is cream-colored. The body has several vertical lines encircling it. Neglectern has one large eye with a crescent-shaped pupil. Neglectern has a large red tongue that floats inside the lampshade and hangs down from the bottom. There are also two purple tassles that hang down from the bottom rim; these tassles each have three pink bands. Neglectern has a large scarf-like piece of purple cloth tied around the top of the lampshade. The band has pink edges and numerous pink bands running down it. This cloth acts as an arm; there is a pink dot on its palm and there are three purple fingers.
