The Mongoose is a native creature to Shadow. The colonists of the world readily welcomed the small (70cm long, 10cm tall) animals because they hunt dangerous venom worms, rats, and other similar vermin. Though not the native Terran species of the same name, this animal apparently fights in the same manner, using quick dodges and swift strikes to tire its opponent before killing it.
