Wild RatA ferocious dire rat imbued with magic power. With superior power and vitality, it uses its sharp front teeth to gnaw at its enemies. Similar to the dire rat, it usually acts in a group, which excel at taking down prey by surrounding it and unleashing a joint attack. Unafraid of beasts even bigger than themselves, they are quick to attack, bringing down their prey in the blink of an eye.
