The Rat Mother
The matriarch, commander, and protectress of Alethport's rat population.
The Rat Mother is a large-sized rat, roughly the size of a bison, of indeterminable age and immense power. The Rat Mother is identical to normal rats apart from her great size and her large, lavender eyes which glow with an undeniable intelligence. Her lair is within a hidden subterranean cavern accessible via the first level of the sewers of Alethport.
The Rat Mother is able to communicate telepathically with all sentient beings, regardless of their language or intelligence level. She also possesses significant powers of compulsion. Although her agenda is not immediately clear, she doesn’t seem to be overly hostile towards outsiders and the preservation of her kin and their home seem to be her greatest priority.
