The Vulcan Blubber is a hulking Afflicted, although it is significantly larger and much more durable. It was tortured and its head was wrapped in bandages and encased in an iron cage. It carries a large urn containing an explosive substance which it can ignite using its torch, turning them into makeshift mortars.
While Vulcan Blubber has little intelligence due to the damage done to its brain, what remains is entirely focused on aggression.[excerpt 1]
