Engineered by the Gezoond as elite "plaguecasters," Gullywunk are capable of releasing and remotely directing airborne pathogens.
Despite its quick reflexes and technically above-average intellect, a Gullywunk easily reads as simplistic and "dopey" to other creatures for its unambitious and easygoing attitude. It is generally content to eat, sleep, follow instructions, and take in aesthetically satisfactory (or "purdy") scenery for hours at a time as it slowly rotates in place and whistles its cheerful tunes.
The precision with which a Gullywunk directs its contagious agents is such that it can not only target distant subjects for infection, but shroud its surroundings in a microbial darkness that its allies can still breathe safely. Concentrating its nanoids into a smaller space can provide a mobile "smokescreen" or even shadowy decoys to confuse enemy sensory input, and with enough concentration, its microbes can be directed to consume and destroy other airborne biohazards such as infection-phase fectoids and fungoid spores.
PLAGUESONG:The Gullywunk's twittering, musical whistle allows it to control the movement of its plague-carrying nanoid "fog," selectively sickening other creatures from a distance.
PLAGUESHADOW: the Gullywunk can concentrate its fog into dark, roving clouds of variable size and shape.
SNAKE JAVELIN: the monster can spring its body into the air and come down on its sharp tail to impale an opponent.
