Many years ago, when the Ancestor still had a small vestige of human decency left within him, he decided to use pigs as test subjects for his grim experiments rather than humans. Since the flesh of pigs is so similar to that of humans, they made nearly perfect vessels for the eldritch entities he was attempting to summon via blood magic and dark rituals. Many of the pigs that were possessed by these unspeakable horrors began to walk upright and gained more human-like features and intelligence, while others became weak and misshapen wretches -- the lucky ones, that is. Those specimens unfortunate enough to have been neglected and forgotten were left as little more than twisted piles of undulating, misshapen flesh.

When the Ancestor discovered the ancient Warrens, he repurposed them into a dumping grounds for his most underwhelming results and disappointing failures. By the time the Heir arrives, the Warrens have become home to the descendants of those experiments called The Swinefolk, a warrior race of pig people whose sole desire is to butcher and feed on any human they can get their hoofed claws on.

This large, brutish and disgusting hybrid of man and pig is the one of the more common and healthier specimens of the Swinefolk, serving simultaneously as meat butchers and warriors. When not ferociously butchering the cold and mangled flesh of his soon-to-be dinner, the Swine Chopper will happily test its bloody, serrated cleaver upon the bodies of naive adventurers who might happen upon its squalid home. Slow and hulking, the Chopper relies on its trusty ball and chain to end tiresome chases with ruthless and brain-splattering efficiency.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Swine Chopper - a Human/Beast enemy that appears in the Warrens and is the bulky front line troops of the Swine, Choppers are as adept at walling damage as they are at dishing it out. They can cause bleed with Butcher Cut, and can stun any hero with their Ball and Chain. They should generally be prioritized behind the more fragile Swine support units; their fairly low resistances to bleed and stun make these good strategies against them. They also have essentially no debuff resistance and low accuracy, so any accuracy-reducing moves are likely to neuter their attacks. Keep in mind, however, that on Veteran and Champion level, he is able to impair the healing of your heroes.
