A bioconstruct engineered by the Mumblegog as obedient muscle, the Snorkus is cowardly and inept on its own but makes a flawless worker and lethal warrior under a smarter creature's guidance, following simple verbal orders (or plagueman sneeze-speak) to the letter (or sniffle). It shares the deadly germ-ridden breath of its creators, along with powerful scythe-like talons functional as arms or legs. Its webbed limbs allow it to glide short distances or maneuver underwater, and its snout is highly prehensile compared to its bretheren.
While Mumblegog are born with random 2-4 digit serial numbers, Snorkus bear meaningless but always unique barcodes.
