TACTICS

A chupacabra attacks with its razor-sharp claws and powerful bite, striking from ambush whenever possible. If a chupacabra grabs a foe, it slashes its throat open and sucks out its blood. If facing only one foe, a chupacabra maintains its grapple until it has drained all of its opponent’s blood. When it kills an opponent, the chupacabra tears it to shreds and gorges itself on as much of the foe’s blood as it can.

Chupacabras are small terrifying bloodsuckers that lurk on the fringes of society, emerging at night to drain the blood of warm-blooded creatures. Though they are not particularly selective when it comes to who or what they attack, chupacabras prefer to attack creatures they can easily kill (such as livestock or small children). Many chupacabra attacks are blamed on vampires (because of the blood drain) or wild dogs or wolves (because of the ferocity of the assault), though in the latter two cases, if the chupacabra leaves any tracks, an observer can readily tell the attacker was bipedal and moved on two legs.

A chupacabra is a bipedal, almost humanoid-like creature about 3 or 4 feet tall. It weighs 60 pounds. Its fur-covered body is dark brown or dark gray and its eyes are bright red, and often appear to be glowing. Its arms and legs end in four-clawed digits and its claws are dull black. A chupacabra cannot speak but utters a baleful moan when threatened.
