Rats are small, prolific rodents found in urban areas. They are popular familiars among spellcasters.[1]

Ecology

Rats are omnivores. They are normally secretive scavengers, but extreme hunger may cause them to join in aggressive, predatory swarms.[1]

Ratlike creatures

Dire rats resemble their smaller cousins in most respects, but grow to be up to two feet in length.[1] Donkey rats are the size of small dogs, and have proportionally longer legs and shorter tails than other types of rats.[2]

Wererats are a type of lycanthrope that can take the shape of a human-rat hybrid or of a dire rat.[3]

Rats in religion

Rats are sacred to the gods Hanspur, himself called the Water Rat;[4] Norgorber;[5] and Lao Shu Po, who began her life as a rat who ate the flesh of a slain god.[6] In addition, the rat is sacred to the archdevil Mammon;[7] the daemonic harbinger Tresmalvos;[8] and the nascent demon lord Murnath.[9]
