Red Death is a mirelurk appearing on Red Death Island in 2287.


According to local legends, the Red Death is a fearsome sea creature, responsible for the loss of many ships around its island over the years. In truth, it is a very small (roughly the size of a bloatfly), completely docile bloodrage mirelurk with glowing red eyes whose shine pierces the Fog and lures curious captains to their doom. Every death the creature has ever caused was the result of ships running aground on the rocky shallows surrounding Red Death Island while attempting to investigate the mysterious red glow.

The Red Death's eye glow bears a striking resemblance to the red light sentry bots emit from their head.
