||Disease bearing chaos spawn. High probability for chaos features and disease. Divine evil inspired.
***Potency of disease contraction is equal to Endurance***
These foul beings go by many regional and cultural names but are essentially the same thing: a chaos-warped combination of human and animal (goat, sheep, and antelope) that frequently carries disease, and lives only to reproduce, spread its diseases, and bring havoc and suffering to the untainted.
Chaos Hybrids have their own, loosely-knit, primitive cultures based on strength and cruelty. A leader of a pack (known as a Murder) is always the strongest, fiercest, and most ruthless of the bunch, having secured his place through slaughtering any challengers. Given this mind-set and philosophy it is therefore unsurprising to find that Chaos Hybrids have utter contempt for all other sapient races seeing them as prey, a means to spread their contagion and to breed with.
The creatures worship the gods associated with their atrocities: those of murder, chaos, disease and blight. Most other sapient cultures shun them at best, and hunt them down with a view to extermination at worst.
A Chaos Hybrid carries a disease (see the disease table below) which can be caught through close proximity to the creature (i.e., close combat engagement distances). Chaos Hybrid corpses remain contagious unless burned. The potency of the disease is always equal to the Chaos Hybrid’s Endurance.
The diseases in the table are the most common, but Chaos Hybrids have many dreadful contagions, especially those who worship the spirits and gods of disease. Hybrid shamans go out of their way to locate virulent disease spirits in the Spirit World, bringing them back to deliberately infect an entire tribe.
