Physical Description

A rootlet can closely resemble a few different root vegetables including turnips, carrots, potatoes, parsnips, onions, and beets. They have very sharp teeth that can and will dig into flesh whenever possible. Rootlets are typically at most one foot tall, including the stem. They are very often confused for normal vegetables, but still taste great in a salad or stew.

Behavior

Rootlets are very violent and will not hesitate to attack if foolishly plucked from their burrows. They will attack and chase relentlessly until either the victim or the rootlet is dead. They are incredibly fast, which only makes them even more deadly. If not properly equipped to deal with rootlets and being swarmed, a person can easily be overwelmed. If not plucked forcibly out of their homes, rootlets are somewhat docile.

Subspecies

Hanglets: Hanglets, are very similar to rootlets, as they too resemble some vegetables or fruits. Hanglets grasp onto branches and dangle upside down. Hanglets can look like apples, orange, pears, plums, peppers, or melons.

Special

None.

Trivia

• Rootlets, and hanglets all still taste delicious in food. If one is short on ingredients and are properly equipped, they are a good way to get more.

• Rootlets don't do much good aside from being cooked. They only mean harm.
