Ah, I think he might be based on a termite! Most termite species are indeed blind like Leg Eater, and also he very much resembles one!
Strange little bald, blind, skinny bug. Somehow he’s endearing. He reminds me somewhat of an insectoid version of Gollum. His appearance, that is. It would be funny if he referred to his Charms as “precious”.
im pretty shure the bench near him is a bug corpse without legs
