Another entry for the bi-weekly contest at
with the theme "Monster Hunters"
I had lots of ideas for this one, Vampire Hunters, Fantasy Monster Hunters, Cyberhunters... But it all came down to the same basic idea of some badass guy in a badass armor with lots of trophies/scars and lots of weapons.
But one of those ideas just kept crying out loud: A squad of monster hunter mice (the theme is plural after all
), hunting their sworn enemy: a cat.
First I wanted to put them into a fantasy setting, swords and all, but then I decided to put them into a posthuman world, where they have evolved, both physically and mentally.
They are scavengers, living on the garbage and rubble of the long gone human race. This garbage is their source of materials. This is why they are all equipped with slightly altered everyday objects.
Cats have become somewhat of a great threat. Slightly mutated and stronger, it requires special hunter teams to drive them out of their caves and exterminate them.
