Varks are migratory herd animals that stand between 5'-6' tall, reach lengths of 12' (nose to stumpy tail), and weigh about a ton. Relatively docile herbivores, they normally flee from predators; however, larger males may try to protect the females and young. (In any big group, there are 4 females/young per male. Adult males have 1d4 more hit points than normal, and all young have half the standard adult hit points.) A fleeing herd, or aggressive male, may perform the Trample maneuver.
Domesticated varks are raised for their meat and milk, and used as beasts of burden.
Varks are one of the hardiest and most adaptable species in the Mutant Future, and the harsh and twisted environmental conditions have spawned several subspecies, including: aarborvarks, chaarvarks, haardvarks, haarmvarks, and shaardvarks.
