The Burrock[1] is a subterranean burrowing creature native to the planet Eden in the Pentagon Worlds.

Description[edit]

The burrock is the largest native species to the planet Eden. Using a highly acidic mucous, this creature can dig through earth just like Terran moles. They can even tunnel through solid rock. Encounters with this shy creature are rare as they avoid outside contact where possible. While not aggressive, the burrock can defend itself by spraying its mucous at its adversaries. The acidic spray can cause dangerous wounds and can even corrode the sturdiest armor.

Nicholas Kerensky, the founder of the Clans, used the burrock as one of his chosen totems when naming the original 20 Clans. Thus Clan Burrock was born.

Notes[edit]

There are conflicting reports on which planet the burrock originated. Some say planet Eden, others say planet Dagda.
