Appearance and Behavior
The Blean is covered in vlantablack. The surrounding area's temperature is reduced by 10 degrees within a 10 mile radius of the Blean, as it absorbs all heat, light, and cosmic energy. It is so dark that the Blean acts as a localized black hole, which when traveled through puts you in a mysterious locations known as Blean hell, which may or may not be Hellmouth Community College's Art Gallery.
The Blean 5 at the advent of The Discipline Era. It is located in the exact center of Chicago. The Blean has some connection to Anish Kapoor, who coated it in his Vantablack(tm) paint, though their exact relationship is debated. The painting of the Blean with Vantablack(all rights reserved) angered the Blean and the people of Chicago as no one likes Anish Klapoor and his shenanigans, and so they scraped the paint off of the Blean and replaced it with Vlantablack, an even darker shade of black free for everyone. The first victim of the Blean's new paint was its possible creator and definitive defiler, Kapoor. It is said that as he was sucked into the Blean, he could be heard screaming, "IT'S FULL OF CLOWNS!" Numerous tourists have since gone missing around the Blean.
