A gnawer develops a rough, grayish and rock-like hide but doesn't lose his mind like other HMHVV II infected. He is forced to feast on human (or metahuman) bones. This odd dietary requirement has led to symbiotic relationships between gnawers and ghouls. Gnawers first were identified in the old Cabrini Refugee in Chicago in summer 2071.
