The Breeder is a monster appearing in Obscure II created by the mutagenic properties of the Mortifilia.
The Breeder is the result of a pregnant woman being infected by a monster; The infected is covered of various tumors on the skin that deform the body making it bigger and bringing it to move on four legs with a new grotesque look. Like many other monsters created due to inhaling Mortifilia spores, the Breeder has a particular protein concentrate around the heart, which contains more slowly oxidized tissues which result in a greater physical resistance. Once killed, it will be possible to extract a sample of blood from the heart of the creature with the use of special syringes to synthesize a energetic serum.
Given its poor mobility, the Breeder has no particular offense against enemies, except to hit it with its bulk or try to scratch it with its paws. To overcome this handicap, the creature gives birth to a few groups of Spider Biter which immediately pounce on their prey to keep them busy. The Breeder manages to distance itself sufficiently from the prey, as its primary attack it will attack with long "tongue" to grab the ankle of its enemies and let them fall to the ground. At that point, the monster starts to drag the victim to their "mouth", forcing their prey to struggle for their freedom. If they do not succeed, they will be swallowed by the monster.
The best way to deal with the Breeder is to ignore the Spiders and attack the monster by trying to not face its front to avoid its "tongue". Alternatively, using a flare from the Flare Gun will keep it busy for a enough period of time to be given the opportunity to be freed from the Spiders, but if you want to save time and ammunition, a Light Grenade will eliminate the monster and parasites quickly.
It is unknown how Breeders were created, but it can be assumed that not too many were there. This is because the subject has to be pregnant and infected to become one.
In day 1 of the outbreak only 3 Breeders were spotted around the city. Corey and Amy found one in the Fallcreek University Hospital naturally. Another was found by Corey and Shannon in Turtle Stone Island and a third one was found by Stan and Shannon in the dance hall of the Delta Theta Gamma Frat House.
- In a cut animation, Corey and Amy would find the first Breeder and see how she would transform.
- Curiously, one can find a pattern in the pair who find the 3 breeders:
Amy & Corey - Corey & Shannon - Shannon & Stan
