I'd really like to get some more information, as it seems, do several others, please consider going back there with a camera.
For your safety, I did a little digging into my big pile of books on folklore and apparitions/prophecy, its either:
1. A very stiff nutter *Occams Razor applies*
2. An Angelic Being (possibly with reference to the prophecy angle too)
3. Apparition pertaining to prophecy (needs to speak to the intended recipient of the prophecy before he will leave, maybe why he backed up rather
than ran away, although if someone was shooting me, I'd want to keep my eyes on 'em too)
4. Daemon attempting to convert you away from God
5. Some other type of paranormal creature, maybe a farie
It might be sensible to take precautions, but also to go back there. Take something that is 100% iron, like a horseshoe or a rusty nail (no alloys),
a small amount of vinegar and some salt. Folklore tends to suggest that fairies, cannot harm anyone near iron and certain substances like salt and
vinegar disrupt apparitions ability to manifest, so they will come within a certain range and then break apart.
Faries will apparently attempt to make you part with the iron by offering you wishes or asking you to come with them (or offer you food or drink),
don't listen and don't take anything they offer. The term mesmerised comes from faries and is apparently a type of glamor they use (spellcraft)
that can make you see them as attractive and beautiful, but they are of course naturally devious and cruel and only want to take you back to their
farie mound as a slave. Consider looking at William Michael Mott's website for reasearch on underground dwellers
Ghosts cannot do physical harm as far as anyone is aware and poltergeists need physical energy, so, as long as you don't take any 13-18 year old
girls, you'll be fine.
Angels of course can do no harm, but daemons can make themselves appear as angels of the light, so perhaps a reasonable time to buy a bible (they also
dislike salt and iron apparently). They may offer false promises and grant wishes, and they may speak of your darkest desires or deeds but they
cannot harm you if you believe they can't and that you are protected by the Lord.
Be safe and ASSUME this is a human that may have mental defects, but don't go maiming the poor guy with a shotgun full of rocksalt or a BB gun to the
