One of the punishments inflicted upon criminals and rebellious slaves involves the surgical replacement of most of the subjects glands and brain tissue, as well as the cranial structure, with that of beasts. The result of such union is a being less than the some of it's parts. These beings, the zoanthropes, are  violent, savage, malicious, near-mindless bestial things. By instinct they gather in rude packs in the wastes and wilds; when they come upon other beings they set upon them to murder, rape and feed. They are filthy and naked, males always tumescent, unable to use any tools aside from rocks and crude clubs. The are completely unmanageable and will follow no leader aside from their savage pack mentality. Zoanthropes are often used as gladiatorial fodder.
