Blitzfins are 3'-4' long, silvery, carnivorous fish found in bodies of fresh- and saltwater (particularly near ruined dams and power plants).  Electricity continuously arcs along their bodies, and their teeth crackle with energy.

Anyone bitten by a blitzfin suffers the initial bite damage, and takes an additional 1d8 jolting damage (unless otherwise immune).  Furthermore, those immersed in water and targeted by a blitzfin's Energy Ray or Energy-Retaining Cell Structure take an additional 1d6 conductivity damage per attack.

Like shockroaches and drearwigs, blitzfins can be used as "living dynamos" by those with the technical expertise.

Mutations:  Energy Ray (Electricity), Energy-Retaining Cell Structure, Reflective Epidermis (Electricity)
