Pigmeez (both singular and plural) are a race of 18" tall, albino porcines that make their lairs in Ancient ruins, cavern complexes, and subterranean tunnel systems. 

Severely hampered by their tiny stature, clusters of Pigmeez latch, remora-like, onto larger beasts and humanoids and ride-slash-command them via Parasitic Control.  They aren't mean-spirited or cruel when dominating others, and view it as a pragmatic necessity for survival.  Encounters with Pigmeez in the wild always involve an additional 1d2 random creatures (per the Encounter Tables on p. 104-105 of the Mutant Future Core Rules, or entries in this blog) that do the bidding of their hosts; that number climbs to 1d6 when encountered in their lairs.

All Pigmeez have synesthesia, and can hear colors, taste numbers, and smell music.

Mutations:  Albinism [D], Dwarfism, Enhanced Vision (Night Vision), Metaconcert, Parasitic Control, Unique Sense ("Synesthesia")
