**Corrupted Creatue (Template)

Corrupted creatures were once normal animals who were twisted by an outside malevolent force. Some were deliberately made by beings of great evil, while others were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. They are uniquely hideous—each has been mutated and twisted in different ways, and they are often terribly misshaped and asymmetrical.

Corrupted creatures act like normal animals (corrupted wolves still hunt in packs, corrupted bunnies dig tunnels and eat grass), but evil (the wolves hunt for fun and torture their prey, while the bunnies deliberately go out of their way to destroy crops and poison fields). Corrupted animals become dire animals, if they weren’t already. They are truly evil.
