Imagine a cross between an raccoon and an armadillo. Add a small horn between its eyes. That is the Waste Knight.
Yes, they really do look like little knights in segmented plate armor when they stand on their hind legs. They sometimes hold twigs in their hands, adding a sword like look to their image.
These creatures are 25-30 lbs (12-15 kgs) and 35 inches (1 M) in length. These creatures are stronger than they look and faster too. Their tough shell segments allow them to defend themselves from all manner of Waste Creatures. People should never under estimate their claws, as they are hard and razor sharp. Knight scatt is quite valuable, as various toxins are passed through and concentrated in the scatt.
These creatures do seem to like Prospectors and their packs. They are a major bother as they are curious creatures, always getting into things.
Despite the common myth, these creatures only run. They do not curl up into balls and roll.
Note: The flexiblty and strength of a Crawlers of the Wastes allows them to get between the armored segments and rip with suction cup or beak.
They are a creature of The Wastes.
