Image of Popokarimu
Tricell created this creature by implanting a Plaga into a bat, hoping to create a B.O.W. that would be effective both in air and on land. In Swahili, "popo" means "bat", and "karimu" means "generous". The creature's flexible tail is the Plaga body itself, covered by a tough firearm-resistant carapace. The soft interior of the tail is vulnerable, but even on the ground it is clever enough to keep it away from would-be attackers. For its own attacks, it uses the glistening talons at the ends of its four limbs, as well as blows from its own body. It can also shoot a sticky substance from its tail to bind its prey.
