Mutie, or Mutant ground Squirrels were a carnivorous version of the ground Squirrel.


In Rat King, the companions were attacked by hordes of mutie ground squirrels. They're slightly larger than normal (about two feet long) with enhanced musculature, oversized fangs, and sharp claws. Unlike normal ground squirrels, these ones eat meat; they attack their prey in waves, seeking to overrun and kill it.
