Ecology: Enormous land crabs, Deplectors live in the crevices of caves found along the walls of the abyssal chasms. Anchoring themselves in place with thick excreted strands, they snatch birds, bats, and other small flying creatures (such as Vultursaurs) out of the air, using their long antennae to detect prey.

While female Deplectors can be up to eight feet in length, the males are much smaller, scarcely larger than a newly hatched female. They dwell in the back of a female's cavern, fertilizing the eggs and feeding off of any scraps from the female's meals.

Personality/Motivation: Typical animal motivations.

Powers/Tactics: A Deplector is pure ambush predator, remaining hidden inside its cave until it detects a prey item flying past. The Deplector will then lunge forward, lashing out with the long claws and attempting to snag its desired victim right out of the air. When lunging, a Deplector uses all of its weight in the attack, counting on the excreted strands to hold it in place.

Appearance: An immense crab-shaped animal, a Deplector has a body upwards of eight feet long with six-foot claws. The antennae can measure twelves feet in length. Female Deplectors are a dark black in color, the males much paler.

Designer's Notes: The Deplector was created using the Giant Crab found in the HERO System Bestiary. One appears in King Kong, snatching a hapless crewman off of the chasm wall as he tries to climb back out.
