The nothingness are alien predators that exist in a realm alongside the physical three-dimensional space where humans exist. When hunting, a nothingness peers into our world. Once suitable prey has been found, the nothingness extends its mouth into our three-dimensional space, and swallows the victim whole. To anyone witnessing this, it will look like a black hole suddenly appeared beneath the victim’s feet and disappearing just as quickly. The victim’s screams can be heard emanating from the ground for days, becoming more and more faint as if they are falling.  

Most nothingness cannot swallow anything much bigger than a human. However, there are references to a nothingness big enough to devour a whale in the Necronomicon

There exist spells that can draw a nothingness to a particular person. 

Breach: the nothingness spends 1 Magic Point to extend its mouth into our realm. The mouth opens for only 1 second and can swallow anything smaller than or equal to the nothingness’ SIZ (the SIZ indicates the size of the mouth, not the entire creature). The victim will be digested over the next 1D4+1 days.
