Distracted Mongrel

A Distracted Mongrel from Onslaught.

Distracted Mongrels
are Necro Minions from Nocturna. They usually appear in packs and attack the heroes by biting and scratching. Every once in a while, they are distracted by something from battle, hence the name.


Distracted mongrels dwell inside mobile interdimensional portals. Their skeletons exist inside our visible, four-dimensional universe, while their remaining organs dwell inside the necrocosmic universe.

With their ghastly appearance, mongrels terrify their victims from afar or near, and at close range inflict devastating physical damage on their foes. But they are strangely observant predators, evaluating the injury they cause after every few seconds before deciding whether to resume their assault.


As they often become distracted in battle it's easy to pick'em off. That's enough of a strategy for these enemies.

  • Their sounds of death are like sounds of a canine (dogs\wolves) or meerkats (african mongooses).
