Mulberry Street Rat People

Name: None
Category: Monsters, Mutants, Zombie-like monsters, Human Predators
Age: Various
Origin: New York city subway
Habitat: New York, NY
General Description: Mulberry Street Rat People are ordinary New Yorkers infected with a highly infectious virus originating from New York subway rats. The virus spreads via saliva and blood from infected rats and people to a human host. Initial symptoms may include rapid hair growth (on face and body, especially – ears and other atypical locations,) craving raw meat, and sensitivity to light and smells. As the virus spreads through out the body additional, often flu-like, symptoms develop – dizziness, nausea, headaches, itching, dry mouth, unexplained bleeding, vomiting, dementia, and sudden aggressive behavior.
Friends, Associates, and Sidekicks: None. Although these mutants do not usually attack each other, their tactics are far from being a coordinated efforts. Every rat for itself, sort of thing.
Sworn Enemies: Clutch, Casey
Special Powers: Relative indifference to pain.
Weapons of Choice: Fangs covered with infectious saliva
Weaknesses: Extreme light sensitivity – bright light may temporarily blind them incapacitating them for a few moments.
Hobbies: Consuming flesh seems to be the only thing these monsters are concerned with. They are not too picky either – human meat, cat meat, rat meat taste equally good to them.
Pet Peeves: Camera flashes and other bright light sources
Best Lines: N/A
Total Estimated Power Rating: 6
1 Base Intellect Points + 4 Base Physical Power Points + 1 Shock Point
Danger Level: Medium to high. Although when encountered one on one these monsters present only medium danger, the danger level significantly increases when they are encountered in groups, which isn't uncommon considering the infectious nature of their condition.
Identification: Disfigured faces and bad teeth. Since the Mulberry Street Rat people attack at the first sight, identifying them should be well below defending yourself on your priorities list.
How to Avoid: The only known outbreak of the virus has occurred in the New York City, thus avoiding NYC is the easiest way to avoid encountering Mulberry Street Rat People. If you are unfortunate enough to live in NYC during the outbreak, lock yourself in your tiny ridiculously overpriced apartment and don't make any noise.
Suggested Actions in Case of Encounter: Although it is certainly possible to overpower a few of these monsters, escape is a much better way to utilize the limited amount of time you have before more (and more) monsters are attracted by all the commotion. Blind them with a camera flash to gain a few seconds and run.
Suggested Killing Techniques: Since Mulberry Street Rat People are nothing more than mutated humans, killing them is no more difficult than killing a human... Since they are impervious to pain however, it is extremely hard to slow them down or incapacitate them, so don't waste your time on non-lethal moves.

How to Stay on His Good Side: Clutch is very easy to get along with – be nice to him and he'll be nice to you. Being a Miss Poland 1982 wouldn't hurt, however.
