The Mutant Future gives rise to all manner of deadly viruses and illnesses...

...and they sometimes mutate so wildly as to take on hideous lives of their own!!!

A skintruder is a living—and altogether malevolent—tumorous mass that dwells inside the abdominal cavity of a domestic feline.  When angry or hungry, it attacks by slithering forth from the mouth and assuming the shape of a shaggier, toothier, bipedal version of its host, somehow expanding to almost double said host's original size.  When done rampaging, it compresses and wriggles back inside the slack flesh-shell, resuming the guise of an innocuous pet once again.

Skintruders are strong enough to rend their way through solid steel, possessing a 20 STR for the purposes of breaking doors, gates, and machinery.  And their bites are fatal, as their saliva contains a Class 20 toxin that causes a victim's blood cells to replicate a thousandfold, resulting in throbbing, overinflated veins that erupt in an agonizing geyser of gore 3d4 rounds after a failed Saving Throw Versus Poison.

The horrid beasts are wantonly destructive, as they relish gnawing into foodstores and medical supplies to contaminate them.  Even the smallest crumbs and scraps are rendered deadly.

While skintruders usually manifest within housecats, they could theoretically form inside the bodies of larger, more dangerous animals...or even human beings.  The Mutant Lord should adjust accordingly the Hit Dice, Attacks, Damage, etc. of such atypical specimens.

Mutations:  Metamorph (Modified), Toxic Weapon (Venom)
