The CrypTIP is a figure of a short stature with dark hair and clothing, both of which are covered in leaves. This creature is infamous for stealing items from TIPsters and will be starring in a totally 100% legit documentary from the Celluloid Visions class of Duke East Term 2 2017. The creature resides on the outskirts and vegetated areas of the Duke East campus. Little is known about it.
In the late 80’s, a young teen saw a dark figure on the edges of the Duke East campus. He called out, thinking they were a lost member of one of the camps, despite it being very well known to TIPsters that talking to other camps is a liability. The figure scurried into the wilderness. Several days later, the teen was sent home due to a broken knee. The next sighting of a mysterious figure was in 1993, where a teen girl described seeing a humanoid figure with crazy hair who stole her snacks. The next day, the girl’s relationTIP ended. More recent encounters with the being describe it as having a 'disgruntled demeanor,' and some suspect that it may just be a college student or professor who can't afford to stay year round. The creature is only seen while TIP is in session, and has been sighted in 1988, 1993, 1997, 1999, 2003, 2007, 2012, and 2015.
