Spotlight: Sadface, the Fellcrafted Chimeric

Satan had his companions, fellow devils, to admire and encourage him, but I am solitary and abhorred.
-Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley

The Wizard lacks resources and thus is unable to craft the battle-automata and servitors typical of his kind.  But he has not let his sere circumstances deter him - setting upon the flesh of those he has captured, he has created terrible Chimerics: blasphemous meldings of human and animal DNA, augmented with cybernetics.  These pitiful creatures are forced to be obedient through mind-links; they live their life in constant agony, venting their terrible hatred on the world as though it were the creator which so twisted them.
