New here. I did search for this in several different forms and places. Not sure if this is the right place, but I saw similar questions here, so I'll give it a shot.
I'm looking for the word for a demon, or just an evil creature, that feeds off of person-to-item attachment.
If I need to be more specific, this creature will literally eat the attachment off of an item. Given a prized possession, say a charm passed down to you from your mother, it will eat the history (therefore eating part of your relationship?) so that it's just some old piece of metal your mom found. A souvenir from that trip you took a few years ago? Just something cheap and pretty you found at a store. You don't lose any memories, but the memories no longer matter.
If this does not exist already, what's the closest existing thing, and what new name would it be given?
(Sorry if some of this doesn't make sense - I'm happy to answer any questions, or edit/remove the question if there's a problem! One name I've been suggested is "attachment distorter".)
