On the borders of the moors and countryside, the awful shriek of the horrifowl can be heard for miles. These solitary creatures hunt mortals to consume, using their tortured bodies as renewable sustenance for weeks at a time.
The horrifowl is a chicken-like creature, standing 10 feet tall; its ruffled feathers hiding two human arms, its glassy eyes fogged over, and its beak forever open. Within its mouth is the face of its last victim, a mortal that has been consumed and whose lifeblood slowly feeds the creature. The unwilling host also provides the eyes and ears through which this foul monstrosity sees and hears.
The horrifowl needs only consume one mortal for weeks at a time, but it will return to a favorite hunting ground regularly once one has been discovered. They are exceptionally dangerous, and one will not hesitate to consume another mortal, regurgitating the half- digested form of its previous meal, if the opportunity strikes.
As a fast action, the horrifowl makes a Steel vs Bravery check against a nearby character; if successful, the target takes d2 damage and is cursed.
The horrifowl's Attack (Unarmed) uses its Bravery attribute, reduces the defending Armor attribute by 1, and deals d6 damage.
