ESOPHAGULLET - The Ravener


CLASS: BIOCONSTRUCT



Originally developed by a food processing conglomerate, this titanic war beast tears apart and devours everything in its path, leaving behind only a thin paste.

BIOLOGY:

The majority of an Esophagullet's body is dominated by its cavernous stomach, and its zealous appetite can never be sated for long. Powerful digestive enzymes and internal grinding mechanisms pulverize most material into a fine slurry almost as quickly as the beast can ingest it, the bulk of which is expelled in a great geyser from its cranial sphincter. What it cannot swallow whole, it tears apart with its monstrously strong claws, smashes into rubble with its sheer bulk or corrodes to slimy chunks in a torrent of bile.

BEHAVIOR:

With surprisingly minimal nutritive demands, the Esophagullet's voracious rampage is driven more by the simple pleasure of consumption than by genuine hunger, an insatiable drive interrupted only when the monster at last wears itself out and succumbs to sleep.

The Esophagullet constantly emits a whooping bellow somewhere between laughter and weeping, briefly muffled as it shovels more "food" into its jabbering maw.

APPLIANCE:

An uninhibited Esophagullet is a terrifying force of destruction to face in combat, eating its way through living beings, carrion, garbage, machinery, architecture and typically some portion of the natural landscape with equal ease and incomparable relish.

Under more controlled conditions, Esophagullet make highly effective demolitionists, tunnel diggers or waste disposal units, and may even be used to refine raw materials.

Many Esophagullet are equipped with an "emergency shutdown" feature, instantly falling into a deep sleep upon the utterance of a predetermined password.


TACTICAL MECHANISMS:


OMNIDEVOURER: the Esophagullet's digestive juices and grinding jaws can destroy nearly any material, organic or inorganic.

STOMACH ACID: the monster can regurgitate its digestive juices to break down particularly large or resilient meals.

IMPLEMENTS: the monster's stabbing fork and crushing pincer limbs are powerful enough to break through most barriers.
