[D3] ABOMINATION: The Viscious Beast:
Card of Trauma and Brutality

Drawn and quartered, hanging meat
Rude and crude, dirty feet
Wild and wooly, rough and hairy
Claws and teeth, sharp and scary

A vicious vulgarian is abusing
A hideous brute is writhing

A cannibalistic wild man, living like an animal gnaws on a fresh kill. He is ugly. He is uncouth. He is harry like an animal. His thick skin is scratchy like a pachyderm. He is naked, like an animal, and we would rather not have to look at his ugly body parts.

The skulls and bones in the background, and his willingness to fight with a wolf over a meal, reveal just how vicious he is. Don’t get too close or he might bite you! He should be kept in a cage.

He is an insensitive clod. He is a slob. He is dirty and smelly. He will step on your toes and not even know it. He will lift his leg and pee on your pants.

The knife poking into the hand symbolizes the constant pain and misery of this pathetic man’s life. He knows he is hated, so he hates. He hates everyone. He hates you. He will kill you.
