In a post-Great Mutant Outbreak world, mutated, highly intelligent fauna are dubbed mutes (i.e., mutant animals). Replacing humans at the top of the food chain, mutes have since forced most humans to go to ground quite literally in underground burrow communities.

FeaturesEdit

Common mutations may include enhanced powers and abilities, hand dexterity, or extra eyes and appendages. While mutes have varying levels of speech capability and linguistic preference, a mute's silence does not necessarily indicate incomprehension. It is just as likely that certain mutes are either unwilling to speak (as in the case of Charles) or prefer to use their own form of communication (see Dubstep Bees and Mega Monkey). In the midst of a spectrum of mutations, all mutes are far larger than their origin species but retain enough original characteristics to render one type of mute distinguishable from another. Select mutes that are gigantic even by typical mutation standards are dubbed Mega Mutes.

Mega Mutes Edit

Factions Edit

Since a mutated prey species may no longer prove an easy meal, and a mutated predator, on its own, no match against an outsized Mega Mute, many mutes have banded together to ensure the mutual survival of their particular mute subspecies. These mute factions can be territorial (e.g., Umlaut Snäkes) or nomadic (e.g., Scooter Skunks). While members typically belong to the same mute subspecies, some factions have developed symbiotic relationships with select mute subspecies by offering power and protection in exchange for service, sustenance, or companionship.
