AMPIBIOUS - "Slime Zapper"


CLASS: BIOCONSTRUCT

   The Ampibious is a laterally flattened, bioluminescent, fast-moving amphiboid able to generate an electrical current and a constant supply of highly conductive slime.

BIOLOGY:

With its thin, lightweight body and sucker-tipped digits, the Ampibious can move with blinding speed in almost any surroundings, darting up walls and slicing through water light a bolt of ghostly blue-green lightning, an appropriate comparison for a creature which also hunts by electricity.

Physical contact with an Ampibious can be extremely dangerous, as the monster is capable of unleashing an electrical shock of up to a thousand volts at once. Of particular concern is the conductivity of the transparent, adhesive mucus the creature can secrete from its sucker-tipped fingers and toes, allowing it to produce electrified slime trails and even semisolid webs.

Ampibious prey on small fish, frogs, worms and insects.

BEHAVIOR:

Ampibious are nervous creatures and prefer to use their speed and agility defensively, keeping out of harms way and shocking adversaries through their barely-visible strands of slime.

APPLIANCE:

Though fast moving, an Ampibious is physically fragile and best employed strategically. In a flash, the creature can set up an electrified slime-fence around the battlefield, or lie in wait to energize a single, unseen thread of goo at the right moment. Faced with an insulated opponent, the Ampibious can at the very least provide a distraction as its luminous form darts in and out of vision.


TACTICAL MECHANISMS:


ELECTROCUTION: the Ampibious can fry another creature with electricity on contact.

ELECTROSLIME: the monster's sticky slime functions similarly to the silken strands of a spider, and can conduct its electricity at full force.
