The Rat King is a mid-round antagonist that is triggered by the mouse migration station event. It is a player controlled ghost role that is unaligned with any other crew or factions. Though, this does not mean the Rat King is aggressive, as it is free to communicate and form deals and bonds with whoever it sees fit.

The Rat King has more health than the average crew member, moves slightly slower, and deals significantly more damage with his claws.

Though the Rat King has no innate goals or drive, it usually seeks out food in order to grow it's army. This is done through its abilities, which require food to be activated.

Spend some hunger to summon an allied rat to help defend you.

The Raise Army ability costs a small amount of food in order to summon an allied Rat Servant to help defend the Rat King. The Rat Servant is allied to the King and is slightly stronger than an average mouse. It, like the King, can communicate with crew members, but is also capable of fighting them off to protect their leader.

Spend some hunger to release a cloud of miasma into the air.

The Rat King's Domain ability costs a moderate amount of food in order to release a small cloud of miasma into the vicinity of the King. The miasma not only heals the Rat King and the Rat Servants, but it also spreads diseases that the rats are immune to. It can be an effective tool in order to heal up the Rat King and his servants as well as zoning out attackers.
