All nosalises are similar to librarians as both are hunched over and humanoid in shape. However, nosalises are smaller and only dangerous when in packs whereas librarians are extremely tough to kill and at least two and a half times the size of a nosalis.
Common NosalisEditCommon nosalises are easily distinguished from others of the species by their pinkish skin tone and lanky arms. This variant’s relative weakness is offset by one factor; they’re always encountered en masse. With a toothy maw and a vicious disposition, these nosalises are a force to be reckoned with, for new explorers and veterans alike.
Dark NosalisEditStronger than the common variant, these nosalises are easy to distinguish from the rest because of their darker hair. They take more damage, deal more damage, and are more frequently found in the center of the metro. Massive hordes of these variants make their homes near the entrances to Metro D6.
Winged NosalisEditOne of the rarer subtypes, winged nosalises are the female of the species. Winged nosalises have a lengthy, pronounced nose, with a smaller mouth than other nosalises, as well as vestigial membranes of skin under their arms hinting at wings. They also have a split lower jaw, irritated red flesh surrounding the eyes and heavily clawed feet. These versions are faster than normal nosalises, and have the ability to jump much further. They also have the ability to unleash a powerful sonic attack which sends a wave of sonic distortion that inflicts damage, causes dizziness, and can stun opponents for short periods of time. Their strengths, however, are offset by poor endurance; they take less shots to bring down than a common nosalis.
Albino NosalisEditA rare variant of the common nosalis, this kind of nosalis has only been seen once, when it killed the ranger Boris outside D6. They are identified by their pale white fur tone, luminescent eyes, and a massive jaw span.
