    Concept: Graverobber

    The Graverobber can, obviously, been found mostly roaming graveyards and animal bone yards. Although it's an omnivore, most of its diet consists of carcasses and other carrion eaters - fungi and maggots are included. Due to it's preference for this type of food, these creatures are very vulnerable for diseases and often their bodies start to decay and rot long before actual death sets in. These creatures should be avoided at all times, since not only do they have a very bad temper and attack on sight, they are also spreaders of almost all contagious diseases known to man.

    Concept: Satan's pet

    Ladies and gentelmen, get down on your knees and shiver in front of this
    duality archetipic creature.
    You are in front of the Satan's pet, kindly called Dustbin,
    a very lovable and kind animal who only can stand the harsh and virile charesses of his master.
    If some unwary soul touches it, for sure it will be the last time.
    Because when it gets angry it becomes Abaddog, (its siamesse brother),
    flipping his body vertically his second brain found in its double cranium gets
    activated and only can think about mayhem and destruction,
    flying towards the victim until it gets its meal.

    Concept: Ischiopagus

    Ischiopagus are all born as conjoined twins. They share one heart but each have a pair of legs, a stabbing arm, a one-eyed head and their own digestion system. After hatching, they quickly develop a preference for the "right" or "left" side of the creature which eventualy dominates the other twin for the rest of it's life. The subjected twin looses it's awareness over a few weeks and it's limbs atrophy and stop growing after a while, aiding the Ischiopagus in it's balance. The vision of the subjected twin remains, giving the dominant twin an advantage as it can see behind it's back.

    The compound eyes are set on a stilt inside a transparant but rock-hard glass-like skull. Special concave and convex curves on the inside surface of the skull allow the animal to see for miles in any direction.

    When in danger, the Ischiopagus acts like a dead rotten animal. It lays still on the ground making it's skin and even muscle tissue transparant thus giving off the impression of a carcass. Special glands emit the smell of decayed and rotten flesh. When predators or scavengers do decide to investigate and try to take a bite, the Ischiopagus can quickly thrust it's stabbing limb forward in a final attempt to save it's life. Sudden movements like that tend to frighten most predators. With this clever diversion, the Ischiopagus can quickly dash towards safety.

    Concept: Bidodo Parretus

    Also known as BiPa, these undead giant birds have been a favorite guard pet among wizards and black magic practitioners in the valley of Wirinhii.
    Since birth, their flesh and internal organs start to decompose slowly but at a steady pace, all due to deep-tissue infections caused by their constant exposure to dead matter. Once they have reached their adult age their bodies start to decompose much faster, their skeletons begin to fracture, slightly affecting locomotion and how much work as guard pets they can handle (still able to harm and even kill curious visitors, though). It’s when they all gather in a single group and all the puss-covered eggs protruding from the ulcers found around the neck areas are expelled from their bodies in several violent and outrageous slimy squirts, and after a period of incubation among the now finally dead adult birds, new tiny Bidodos are born.

    Concept: Genetic disaster

    It was intended to be a solution to world hunger. The challenge was to grow from scratch, a protein tissue that would be indistinguishable from actual animal meat. The Bova series was created from the genetic material of many bovine species. It was designed to have no higher functions, no nervous system at all... in theory it would be no more "alive" than an uprooted turnip. But that's not quite the way it turned out...

    The worst part was, any small piece fractioned off from the "parent" would ultimately grow into a viable entity of it's own. Oh, we got meat all right... the question now is how do we get rid of it? And how long before they start in on hunting braaiiiinsss...?

    Excerpt from Closed Congressional Hearings (declassified):
    "...why didn't you tell the public?"
    "The public? Are you kidding? The public still freaks out over genetically modified tomatoes and irradiated milk. Do you really think they were ready for THIS?"
    "Change is a virtue my friend... if you want to escape, all you have to do is make up your mind."
    John Cale / Bob Neuwirth

    Concept: Carrionbird
    the unholy incarnation of every pet parakeet that ever died neglected in a cage, these monstrosities slither about on undulating layers of viscera, squawking in an endless ill-tempered tirade against unkind fate . . .

    Concept: Atomic Lonewolf
    These beasts wander the desert outskirts by themselves. They never travel in hords, for the simple reason that these beast are extremly aggressive. They eat everything that moves, even their own kind.
    These dangerous predators are the left-over of desert animals and nuclear test bombs. Because the intense radiation they are exposed to they have brains that have a neural activity beyond recognition.
    These higly toxicated brains make their bodys operate without failing in extreme conditions. Because of their strong and ever lasting bodies these beasts scare or walk aside for nothing and nobody.
    The only thing they think about is eating to regenerate their bodies to their original shape.
    Throughout the years these monsters have evolved into a selective combination of the best predator parts.
    If you see this thing comming at you, you better kill yourself fast, because there is no running, and once they got you between their teeth a part of the toxic gasses go inside your body, stopping you from dying and making you watch the show while they slowly digest you.

    Concept: Crodalinus
    This creature is not very fast. It's crawling with the help of its second head.
    It's looking for its master, but he's dead. The Crodalinus only dies when it realizes its master is gone.

    Concept: Haemionarazel
    Haemionarazel does not breed, rather it travels virally from one creature to another;
    spread in the spore left behind from the initially unwell creature to other creatures
    feeding nearby.
    Once infection turns to decay the host begins to mutate between it's own and last host's DNA.
    Only the consumption of flesh and the driven need to spread its spore will sustain the undead
    creature once it arises from it's final death throes into Unlife.

    Concept: Bogdog

    A dumb species of animal that is constantly at conflict with itself. Even in an undead state it would rather rip itself apart than fight for it's own survival. Needless to say, they're on the endangered list, but with nothing other than themselves as a threat to their existence, extinction is imminent.

    Concept: Wastewalker
    The Australis Tecton is an arctic wasteland that is inhospitable at the best of times, but its winters are particularly brutal. Living things cannot hope to withstand the temperatures, and most animals have the sense to migrate to warmer climates. The wastewalker, however, is a non-migratory creature. Since it cannot survive the winter, its solution is simple; it dies.

    With the onset of winter, the wastewalker floods its system with a chemical that dissolves and digests its internal organs. Though the creature is effectively dead, the energy produced by this process fuels it for the entirety of the winter, and it continues functioning even in the coldest temperatures.

    These undead creatures feed exclusively on a special crystal that only grows in the Australis Tecton's cave systems during the winter. The crystals have regenerative properties, slowly rebuilding the wastewalker's missing organs. So in this way, come springtime, wastewalkers are "reborn".

    Concept: Von Kotzebue's Burden
    Discovered in the Bikini Atoll on March 3 1954 by natives on neighboring islands, these were thought to be aliens from another planet. At the time, none had the wherewithal to understand the first test of a hydrogen bomb and its adverse effects on the surrounding wildlife.
    Believed to have come from the sea, this creature and many more like it were originally found alive, though suffering badly from diseases at the time unknown to common man. After the death of one of these majestic beats, its body was entombed in a steel box for transport to the United States for further study, but it never made it that far.
    After having been dead for 2 hours, Von Kotzebue's Burden(Named after Otto Von Kotzebue who discovered the islands), came back to life, it's body sustained by the massive dose of radiation from the fallout of the newest and deadliest bomb the world had ever seen.
    It's not clearly understood why this creature has two heads, but it is suspected that in its very rapid evolution a second head was added to the now tainted genetic code to ensure the beasts ability to sustain animation after death.
