The Aberration(new hardmode biome) WIP

Lore:
The Aberration is what was created when light and dark clashed. The gruesome and rotting evils of the Crimson and Corruption saw the purity and perfection of the Hallow. They grew ever sour and sections of the evil near the Hallow became infected with hatred for the Hallow. On the other hand, the creatures of the Hallow observed the Crimson and Corruption. One was a amalgamation of flesh, blood, and ichor. The other, a shadowy land plagued with evil and cursed flames. The Hallow was helpless to change the evil of these biomes to purity, and that part of the Hallow fell into a eternal despair, slowly degrading into a wasteland of regret and death.

Themes: Hatred, Jealousy, Helplessness

Actual Biome :indifferent::eek::

As most of you know, at the beginning of hardmode, a V shape of your respective evil biome and the hallow is created. My idea is that in the middle where they meet, the aberration begins. The aberration is a unique evil biome in the fact that instead of spreading through the Purity/Forest/Jungle/Tundra, it only spreads through evil biome and Hallow blocks. Also, Aberration blocks appear anywhere where Hallow and evil touch each other. It is not only created at the beginning of Hardmode.

Blocks:

Stone -> Spitestone (Sprites by Scratch Lunin)

Grass -> Abhorrent Grass

Enemies/Critters:
New Hallow Critter:
Utopia Seeker.
Appearance: similar to a fairy, rushes at you, explodes, and heals you


Envy Eaters:
Appearance: looks like a bird from afar, when you get close it turns into a flying monstrosity.
Attacks by dashing at you three times in succession, long amount of time between attacks.
48 melee damage, 210 health, low knockback

Smiley:
Appearance: a really disgusting looking combination of mimic teeth and a golisopod body. It looks disentegrating and sludgy like everything else.
Attacks by flinging itself at your arm, latching on, and dealing DPS. To get it off you, you need to click and try to shake it off. The first time you click, you have a 6.25% chance of success. Every successive time doubles your chances.
70 melee damage(to make shaking it off more urgent), 400 health, no knockback

Chaotic Grievers:
Appearance: They look vaguely like Chaos Elementals, but dark green, black, and melting. (Cool but unnecessary idea: They would have an idle animation of them shaking, as if they were weeping)

45 ranged damage, 320 health, no knockback

Dystopian Hive

The Gentleman: Spawns during Blood Moons and Solar Eclipses
Appearance: looks like Charlie Chaplin( if you know who he is)

80 melee damage, 1200 health, slow attack

Interesting concept with the way it forms. I'm curious to see how this will turn out later on. What colors will the biome be?

I like the new enemies and they seem balanced to me. You should ask some spriters on the TCF to make prototype sprites for them. Could you further explain the Utopia Seeker? It's certainly an interesting idea and I'd like to hear more. Also, it might be good to condense all the enemies into a spoiler to save space.

This was my first post, I don't know how to make a spoiler.

Edit: Found out!
