- Anatidaephobia: The fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you.
- —Gary Larson, The Far Side
When facing off with Baron Umlaut, Lynk opened a portal to The Dreamlands to summon a creature to defeat him. She got... a duck. But the duck was powerful and vicious enough to rip off one of Umlaut's limbs. (Which Lynk later healed.) She successfully defeated Umlaut's plans, but now something perhaps even more dangerous had been unleashed on the waking world...
The duck wasted no time in causing trouble, calling forth Mr. Zklmcgyx, Emir of Embarrassing Dreams, from the dreamworld. It psychically attacked Dvandom Force through manipulating their dreams. In assumed different identities and roles in the dreamworld; as Lord Fowlverran it gave their old enemies the Constellation Gang new powers as the Slipstick Knights of dir/na/nog>. It then pulled Dvandom Force into an extremely silly parody of The Phantom Menace, where it played the role of Darth Mallard. Lynk overcame it by drawing on her full powers as a dreamqueen... after which the duck vanished, its job done.
It turned out the Duck had been trying to fulfil its orders and help Lynk, but because of its nature as a Nightmare, this had manifested through attacking them. Nonetheless, it had aided Lynk in coming to terms with her powers and role as a dreamqueen.
One-dimensionally malicious. Maybe not actually sapient?
