Starfinder – The Mugato

Boldly go where venomous unicorn apes attack!

The Mugato

Just like how fantasy rpgs draw from a wealth of myths and legends to draw inspiration for monsters, Sci-Fi is full of strange and terrible creatures to adapt and throw at your players. This week I bring a famous (or perhaps infamous) beast – the Mugato from Star Trek TOS: A Private Little War.

A shaggy white, ape-like creature with a large horn sprouting from its forehead, the mugato is a fierce predator. With a ridge of horns going down its back and sharp, serrated teeth, mugato are feared by animals and sentient species alike. Swooping down from the trees, they often hunt in pairs, quickly biting their prey then waiting for their venom to do its work before returning to feast on the remains.
