Javeleens are porcine creatures encountered in deserts, scrublands, and wastelands.  They closely resemble their ancestor species, with two glaring exceptions:  indigo fur and 1d4+1 spear-like spurs protruding from their backsides.

Made of hyper-regenerating ivory, javeleens launch these projectiles at enemies at a range of up to 120' with unerring accuracy (getting +3 To Hit per missile).  Each javeleen can launch a total of 20 per day.

Weaponsmiths prize javeleen bones, and use them to create fine arrowheads, spears, and lances that grant +1 To Hit and +2 Damage.

Mutations:  Aberrant Form (Bone-Spears), Increased Sense (Vision)
