The term "Creature" was created during the filming of a machinima series Robot Donkey Chronicles in Call Of Duty 4. In between filming, PhsycoSoldier, started crawling on the ground and pressing Y (the Xbox control for switching weapon) really fast which makes your body look very strange. Then Stg. Bisking called him a creature and the name stuck from there.
According to Ze, the term originated as a gentle insult used to poke at the others but came into regular use after they began making Creature Talk. He also says that there was no official start to the Creatures nor were there original members.
- "I met Kootra in early 2009 and introduced him to Sp00n. Later in the year, we met Gassy (can't remember how). Then I think Sp00n introduced Nova to us. Sp00n met Dan through a video mix-up situation with Machinima.com (a pretty good mistake!) and introduced him as well. We met Seamus then Sly as guests on Creature Talk after we spammed their channels." - Ze's Formspring

The Creature House is, as the name suggests, a house in Littleton, Colorado just outside of Denver where some of the Creatures, Seamus, Nova, and Danz with regular visits from Kootra and Gassy. Gassy previously lived in the house for a few months before moving in with Renee. It is where they continue to make their regular gameplay videos as well as live action Creature Talks, vlogs, cinematic shorts and videos of team games. Despite saying that he wouldn't, Sp00n and his girlfriend Ali, are moving to Colorado. Sly has confirmed that he has made arrangements to move to Colorado with Immortal in early 2013. Ze has thoughts about moving, but he is currently in college until 2015/2016. Danz's girlfriend, Liz, moved into the House temporarily in April 2013, as the two of them moved into a nearby apartment shortly thereafter.
There is now a new Creature House, as the past one's lease was ending and the Creatures didn't have enough money to buy it. Though there has been several short clips of certain parts of the house, there has yet to be an official tour of the new home.
DISCLAIMER: This list is comprised of friends of the Creatures/other commentators who have been called a Creature by an official Creature (before the complete formation of the group).
