Metamorphosis Alpha: In Search of Adventure
The piercer is the mutant descendent of the black bear. It is covered with a black bristly fur which can alter color to match the surroundings. Beyond its devastating bite and sharp claws, it is protected by sharp quills on its front legs and shoulders. When threatened, it may also emit a roar which evokes fear in its enemies. A fully-grown adult has a shoulder-height of roughly four feet when standing on all four feet. It rises to nine feet when standing on its hind legs.
