The Beerburglar (Homo Heros Vocatus) is a humanoid monster, a subspecies of the Common Hero. Though there is not much outward distinction between the Common Hero (Homo Heros) and the Beerburglar, it was granted subspecies status due to large differences present in brain structure and overall nervous system and an extra organ present in the Beerburgler that seems to function as an overflow liver .The common name Beerburgler was coined in the 2000 g.e. Criminal Affairs Public Report issued by the Godville Secret Police where it was noted that along with the Beer Mugger, a close biological relative of the Beerburglar, an estimated 60% of alcohol related robberies and thefts could be traced back to those two monsters.
Appearance, Identification, and Origin
The Beerburglar. like its cousin the Common Hero is a humanoid being. It has a slightly short stature with averages heights of 170 cm in the male variety and 150 cm in the female variety, which gives it some feelings of insecurity.  It has hair on its head, eyebrows, a nose and a mouth. Two ears, two eyes, two feet, two toes and oftener than not, really sore knees. It is in other words, indistinguishable from any hero, at least on the basis of a first glance. Beerburglars almost always appear heavily laden with flasks, but again that is no clear sign and could easily be a hero. It is then, only on behaviour and alimentation that Beerburglars can be identified.
The easiest indicator that a humanoid creature is possibly a Beerburglar is if it is pointing something that appears to be not sharp enough to slice, but enough to hack and confer tetanus, and demanding all your booze. Thus, even if this is not a Beerburglar it certainly is a beer burglar. A second way to identify the Beerburglar is by very close observation over a period of time. For, while it is commonly believed that heroes consume nothing but copious amounts of alcohol, it is not actually true. A true Beerburglar does consume nothing but copious amounts of alcohol and somehow still survives. Its secret exists in its second liver-like organ, which appears to, besides stopping alcohol poisoning, to be able to extract all necessary nutrients for the survival of the Beerburglar, even some that were not present in the alcohol in the first place. How this process takes place is unknown, but it is due to this that if a humanoid hero looking creature is found to truly consume nothing at all besides alcohol, they can be identified as a Beerburglar. Of course, this information is only necessary if the Beerburglar does not self-identify, and the reader need not memorize it, as Beerburglars as prone to doing just so. The true easiest identifier of a Beerburglar is it yelling "I'm a Beerburglar. Rraaaaaagh!"
Where do these mysterious creatures come from? That is a pretty good question, and if you really want to know, go out into the field and find out yourself. From the relative safety of a laboratory with the comfortingly nonviolent presence of a deceased Beerburglar, Heliopolis's leading minds have come up with the following theories:
Hero Transformation Theory
This theory suggests that Beerburglars are not truly a separate and distinct subspecies of the Common Hero but actually a corrupted and godless version. This most prevalent of theories regarding the origin of a Beerburglar suggests that Beerburglars were once like any other innocent hero, content in bashing in monster brains, stealing their gold and artifacts, returning to town and getting their booze the honest way; with the gold scavenged from the corpses of their dead foes. The Beerburglar, by some variable that has not yet been isolated, veered to a new path and cut out the middleman. It would instead ignore the cries of its god that called it to complete quests and gain glory by killing enemies, and instead take its beer by thievery. Turning away from their god like this, Beerburglars ent
