Unit Designation: "Ezoghoul Ravager"
Field Notes: According to inside sources we recently acquired, the Capitol Bio-Weapons Division has captured and studied the monstrous Ezoghoul Ravager - the more powerful of the two Ezoghoul entities. These are their notes:
Case Study: #13304577393
Bio-entity: Ezoghoul Ravager
Tests: Combat, Durability, Unique Traits, Demeanor
This creature, captured alive via a stasis trap, is one of our enemy's most dreadful and deadly efficient warriors. It's already dismembered two of our Bio-Division's handlers and is deceptively clever. We've had several more close calls (in addition to the two deaths) while studying this fiendish combatant as it has constantly probed and adapted to what it observes while we study it. One might surmise that it's just as readily observing us, too.
Anyways, moving on, we find that it possesses a hybrid flesh/metal exoskeleton, much like the basic Ezoghoul's carapace only the Ravager's skin seems even more impervious to damage or ballistic weapons fire. This is an extremely resilient organism, capable of absorbing large amounts of damage while functioning at maximum battle efficiency. Its claws and teeth, along with the large unearthly blade it normally wields make it a damage-dealing whirlwind, nearly unmatched among close-quarter combat specialists. The fact that it seems utterly focused on the destruction of any living creature(s) around it, only adds to its ferocity. We've had to replace both its bindings and the glass-steel observatory screen several times already due to its incredible strength and determination to escape. Only the heaviest of neuro-dampeners has affected it or it would have succeeded by now.
One very unusual trait we've noticed is that it seems to exude an almost paralytic "fear" effect that roots foes in their tracks, making them easy prey. Testing has concluded that it emits some sort of mesmerizing pheromone that humans are particular susceptible to. We've begun research into a counter-agent that would negate this insidious ability but it may take several months to finalize a successful reagent for this project.
These our are primary observations at this point and as we learn more, we'll update this Field Study.
