The Creatures met each-other through various sources, but mostly through the creature Sp00n, as well as through being on the Machinima Directors Program together. They started out as friends, then progressed on to making machinima and let's play together, and finally formed 'The Creatures'.
The term 'Creature' originates from Call of Duty 4, where one would go prone and tap the switch weapon key which would result with a humorous movement of the player, who they described as looking like a creature.
Today, 'The Creatures' is a legitimate business. Most of the live in there own aparments. They upload regular videos to their main channel, TheCreatureHub, as well as their own individual channels, run a website with a popular forum, and host a weekly podcast called Creature Talk, which is hosted every Saturday evening. Also haveing meet up.
There are rumours that Immortal or Kevin might be joning them as thay have been playing alot with Nova.
Creature Carl is the Creatures' first mascot, and, according to Kootra "He is THE Creature", and is classified as a Sloth/Rabbit thing with a big bushy tail. The first image of Creature Carl was a drawing done by UberHaxorNova based on Kootra's ideas.
Creature Carl was crowned King of the Web 1st of December 2011, winning the Creatures $7,500.
During the first 24 hour livestream, the Creatures announced that they would release a new mascot if they reached the $3,000 milestone. It was achieved at 8:23 PM, Eastern Time, and Coby was unveiled.
Coby is a marsupial with fur and other badger/mole type features. It's also notable that he is a male with a pouch, much like a seahorse.
After the Creatures announced the decision of buying a house in Denver where most of them will live together, they've also announced that ChilledChaos (CriousGamers on YouTube) and Junkyard129 are not a part of the Creatures anymore. Chilled commented on the issue in a video "I want to be [a part of the Creatures], Junk wants to be, (...)but they got to do what they got to do, which is fine but it sucks that Junk and I are not allowed to be a part of that". He also said they will still be friends. GassyMexican has also been removed creating even more controversy.
