@Basketballer,
No. An entity is in a human, but the human is not the entity.

According to my interpretations of the quick defs in the link above, the humanoid would seem indeed to be an entity. You'll just have to elaborate, Just

@dalehileman,
Hi
I am not good at trying to elaborate my statements, but I will try.
An innocent child gets corrupted and reacts, resentfully for instant, the resentment brings forth the entity. If a person sees the resentment and is sorry, it does not feed The entity, it then subsides It lives on anger. It only has power to destroy if we feed it.

It is difficult to elaborate on. Unless you can do it better.

@justforme23,
Thank you Just but my take is more nearly literal, Just not that colorful

…...perhaps not doing you Justice

@justforme23,
Just, just the two quick defs just seem to describe a humanoid pretty well, do him justice. That's about just as literal, if not profound, as I can get

We'll have to find a participant who can translate your concept into common everyday terms suitable to the Average Clod (me)
