Rats are found all over the world. They are longtailed rodents that are considered pests wherever they exist. Rats thrive in urban environments, where they can easily feed off the leftover food and waste of the community.

While wild rats are seen as vicious and diseasecarrying beasts, tame rats are quite docile and friendly.

Dire rats are dangerous creatures. They are much larger than a common rat and are found in starship cargo bays and city sewers. The bite of these creatures will often carry a crippling disease. The typical dire rat is 2 feet long and weighs 25 pounds (2 bulk).
