Reeking like charred flesh, the Wrath is an almost completely immobile Devilbird, its luminous eyes and subtle, ice cold breath the only indications that it is alive. A stinking, sootlike powder constantly wafts from its twisted body, and houses billions of the bird's pollen-like infection cells. Hosts exhibit an aimless sense of blind anger and experience an exhilirating high by engaging in acts of destruction, a behavior cycle that can escalate until the victim destroys themselves altogether. None of this process appears to benefit the Wrath, except to drive away those who would otherwise disturb it.
A Wrath does not move and does not communicate, but under rare circumstances it does appear to "bond" with other creatures, as indicated by their apparent safety from its effects.
Bonded with a caring enough trainer, a Wrath will seemingly coordinate the fury of its vassals towards their ally's protection and benefit, though this remains its only apparent sign of consciousness.
WRATH INFECTION: contact with the monster's "soot" causes a state of berserk violence in its designated adversaries.
