|Alternate names||Black habilist|
|Notable examples||Honorius Ludius Grotius Swill|
A massacar is a black habilist whose knowledge and skills, such as surgery, are employed in the creation of gudgeons. As such they represent the next-to-last position in the dark trades as suppliers to the hob-rousing pits or other employers of artificial monsters. Ironically massacars also represent the intellectual, research-oriented side of the dark trades: some claim to be searching for deeper knowledge, including the secret of perpetual life and the creation of superhuman teratologists capable of fighting no matter how badly injured, who can hunt down and destroy monsters where they dwell.
