Also Known as the Admin, or Staffies, the Mod is one of the few creatures on the internet that actually hunts trolls. As an apex predator, it actually feeds on drama of all kinds, and patrols vast stretches of internet in search of food. These territories are so large that it is rare for a Mod to actually be present at the site of a troll attack or other disturbances.
It hunts by watching for scuffles to arise between internet denizens and charges in while they are distracted, swinging the hard bony end of it's powerful tail, commonly known as a "banhammer" it's not a precise tool, however, and the troll's prey and innocent bystanders are likely to be hit as well as the trolls themselves.
While extremely powerful, the Mod is not invulnerable- Other Mods can and often do take them out, either to gain their territory or to stop the spread of God-syndrome, which is a fatal disease that causes them to behave excessively aggressively.

Thank you for the insightful question!
Do they dance? offer up fresh kills? sing?
Normally the mating displays feature banners, and huge journals. Contests are not uncommon and usually individual displays involve copious feather-ruffling. Weirdly enough, females tend to be more vividly coloured than males.
Occassionally males will challenge each other, and standard users must be careful not to get caught in their scuffles
Let me say I love how the Moderator looks and it's like a giant combo of a bunch of my favorite animals
And don't forget it doesn't consider flat-out yiff to need a mature tag c:
Misssing Mature tags are usually a sign of a poorly-patrolled territory, but in some cases it is a sign of a rabid moderator. Avoid the area regardless.
and we do need moderators to take care of thieves, hate-ogres and rabid trolls.
But yes, it does kinda look like that...
