     The Gonish is a mutant beast that combines the characteristics of a feline with some form of insect. These creatures are the size of a large dog, six-legged, covered with a furry chitinous skin. They can walk bipedally, but usually scurry about down on all legs with which they can climb up walls like a spider. They are extremely cowardly and skittish, possibly this is where their name came from. If they meet any real resistance they are "gone". Gonish have an eerie ability to become in essence living shadow creatures, becoming effectively invisible in low-light conditions, surprising foes on a 5-6. When in this form they cannot physically attack but can only be attacked by energy weapons or mental attacks. They lurk in the dark recesses of ruins, hiding above passages in their shadow form, when prey passes they wait until the last party member goes by then attempt to use their fragrance development to attack them. If successful they will attack attempting to lay eggs inside the host. If any resistance occurs or others attack them, they will unleash Killing Sphere and flee.

 Believe it or not this creature was totally random, I felt uninspired this evening so I opened up the awesome Random Esoteric Creature Generator and went with what I rolled up.  The picture while not completely accurate gives some concept of what the critter looks like.
Have a good one! -B
