The organic mechanism which works diligently to keep one’s DNA in proper order is exceedingly faulty. As a result, the mutant mutates much more often than other creatures. This trait is quite rare due to the fact that many creatures with this mutation have died out due to the sheer number of genetic drawbacks they ended up enduring through the course of their lives. The mutant must fail 3 saving throws in a day to gain a mutation, and takes an additional amount of damage equal to the power score modifier per dice whenever exposed to radiation.
