Glotonerias are vicious beasts that live in the Gourmet World. They are known for their unstoppable hunger.
Glotonerias looks like a muscular giant ape with a growth of skin in the form of a human torso with hair and facial features. They use this as bait to attract prey towards them. They have three eyes in total one on each shoulder and the third one just below the human torso.
Glotonerias are extremely violent they will attack and consume everything in sight. Glotonerias are also very intelligent using the human looking top part of their body as bait to attract prey. A baby Glotonerias is docile and won’t attack anything only eating what their parents bring them. Once they reach adulthood they will eat their parents for food. During mating season males become violent towards each other.
Digestive assimilation: After they devour their food, they wait for it to digest in there stomach. After digestion, the cells of the prey will be assimilated into the biological tissue of the Glotoneria. The gourmet cells of the Glotoneria starts to absorb the gourmet cells of their prey. After digesting their prey their physical appearance changes for a limited amount of time. If their prey possesses a unique ability the beast will be able to use it as well for a limited amount of time. The time limit depends on how strong the prey is and how long it’s been since they have eaten the prey.
The only editable part of the Glotoneria is the small intestine. It is edible raw but the taste is amplified when it's cooked. The intestines have a distinct taste of plain pasta, and as such, can be substituted in any pasta dish for grain-based pasta. They also add a subtle meat texture and flavor to the dish, so when eaten raw, they taste almost exactly like pasta in meat sauce.
The bones and teeth of the beasts can be crafted into lightweight yet effective weapons, armor, dining wear and cooking utensils. The bones take years and years to corrode, and are beneficial for long term use.
