Old Time Radio Drama Adventures
creature - assassin - poisonous - remotely controlled
This creature is about two feet across, has metal tipped feet and is controlled by one of the Technomaster’s remote clockwork controls. It is programmed hunts down and kills its targets by launching spines from its back (that have been dipped in poison from the castor bean).
It is easy to kill so tries to attack using stealth from the darkness.
This creature, natural to the Peruvian jungle, never grows to such size without the intervention of an outside agency. The Technomaster has modified and grown this creature to serve as one of his remote killers. He has attached a control device to it and programmed it to hunt specific targets.
