The Gloomer

Species: Monster Water Rat
Place of Origin: Unknown
Gender: Male
Weapon: Natural Defenses
Death: Snakes
Appears: Mossflower
Games: Escape the Gloomer

The Gloomer was an enormous, frightening, mindless black water rat that lived in the underground lake of Kotir and was controlled by Tsarmina Greeneyes and her army. Verdauga Greeneyes captured and imprisoned him long ago. He was used as a sort of attack animal to fight the wildcat's enemies. Upon Tsarmina's request, Brogg, Scratt, and Cludd fastened some leads on the Gloomer and Fortunata led Brogg, Scratt, and the beast into Mossflower to fight. The Gloomer got into the waters of the River Moss and lost a battle with the vicious Stormfin, an enormous pike, in the River Moss.

The Gloomer in Escape the Gloomer

The Gloomer was blind and hard of hearing, but had enhanced smell. He did not exhibit self-consciousness and was veritably insane from many seasons of imprisonment in the dark lake.

Escape the Gloomer

In Escape the Gloomer, The Gloomer retreated beneath Kotir after the battle with Stormfin, and Gillig later encountered the rat as he hunted for Verdauga's lost Scroll of Inheritance. The rat was defeated by a den of snakes.
