This sinister creature releases a concentration of shadow magic into the atmosphere which adheres to the surrounding water vapour and causes it to condense into impenetrable black clouds. These clouds can then be used as cover, transportation, or as a reservoir for storing shadow energy.

These mice are believed to be responsible for the notorious trojan thundercloud tactic of bygone lore.

Mouse ID#: 1043

Cheese Preference
