Anglers are creatures found in Appalachia.

Characteristics

Biology

Anglers possess fleshy bioluminescent growths atop their heads (similar to an anglerfish's illicium) that acts as a camouflage for the predators, effectively disguising them as the surrounding lure weed to fool its prey.

Gameplay attributes

The angler is an aggressive creature with the ability to spit out a fireball made of mucus, inflicting heavy incendiary damage to any target in a small radius. In combat, they often rely on these long-ranged attacks but have been observed to charge at their prey and use their claws, though often they will halt mid charge to use their preferred method.

Anglers' Energy Resistance is much higher than their Damage Resistance, making ballistic or melee weapons the preferable choice for engaging them in combat. Anglers will not enter buildings or climb stairs. If a player character enters a building the angler will retreat but stay in the general area. Anglers will use their ranged attacks against their foes that they cannot get close to but will retreat if attacked with ranged weapons.

Behind the scenes

Anglers are potential mutations of anglerfish or frogs, sharing the "lure" and upturned jaw of the former, and the limbs, proportions, and habitat of the latter.
