Grafton monsters are cryptid creatures found in Appalachia in 2102.

BackgroundEdit

The Grafton monster, once a cryptid associated with West Virginia was made flesh by West Tek's experiments at their Huntersville facility. Using the FEVS-006458 strain on October 23, 2077, scientists created a stable - if horrifying mutation. Based off the snallygaster strain, researchers tweaked the genome, producing a giant that shattered the containment unit, but was otherwise stable (excepting the absence of a discernible head). The mutant was sedated and transported off-site, with the Great War sidetracking the convoy and allowing the monster to escape into the wild.[1]

The resulting monster is headless, hairless and has a greyish colour skin with a leathery skin texture. It stands around 2.3 meters tall and has an oversized chest. The mutations that turned it into a powerhouse have also turned its skin and led to the development of glands that can eject globs of corrosive, oily substance in a wide area around it.[2]

CharacteristicsEdit

The Grafton monster is a large, hulking monster, which limits its ability to maneuver into tight spaces. It will generally be hostile towards nearby creatures as well as the player character.

BiologyEdit

The Grafton monster is a gigantic, hairless gray creature with a disproportionately large upper torso and arms, stumpy legs and enormous three-fingered fists. Its head is non-distinct, seemingly tucked beneath the bulk of its shoulder muscles, which makes it rather difficult to make successful headshots on the creature.

Gameplay attributesEdit

A creature that can be quick for its size, it will use it's arms as well as it legs to hurl itself towards a target. It can stun the player character for a few seconds. Also, it will launch projectiles (a black liquid), or throw giant rocks similar to super mutant behemoths. The huge shoulder of the Grafton monster is one of its weaker points.
