This deadly biological weapon produces levels of ionizing radiation dangerous to most other creatures, possessing a secondary lymphatic network adapted to the generation of natural isotopes and a system of metallic spinal cables capable of safely containing excess energy. Their largely metallic eyes are too specialized for normal visual function, but can detect a living organism by energy signature and bombard the target with projected ion rays at an effective range of up to a thousand yards. As their cellular bonds deteriorate, the prey rapidly decomposes and melts into a heap of steaming sludge, which the monster will slurp up into its concealed, toothless esophagus. A chernobeam is a natural born long-range sniper, and can even project its silent, invisible rays through most solid barriers. Each of its ocular dishes can swivel independently, allowing it to engage up to two targets simultaneously over a wide area.
The chernobeam's own putty-like flesh is in a constant state of imperceptibly slow liquefaction, a process the monster finds pleasurable and reassuring. If protein intake is insufficient to replace lost tissues, the monster's body with reflexively cease radioactive production and slowly restore order to its cellular structure, a stifling and obnoxious sensation to the being.
