About

The Terrordon, is a marine predator, comparative in ways to sharks on Earth. There are however, key differences and they possess several distinct features that set it apart. This apex predator can grow up to 25 feet in length, with a robust, streamlined body built for speed and power. Its skin is covered in tough, dark-grey scales that provide both protection and camouflage in the deep waters of the Anarkis Ocean.


Terrordons have multiple rows of razor-sharp teeth, each about 6 inches long, capable of slicing through flesh and bone with ease. Their eyes are large and adapted to low-light conditions, allowing them to detect prey in the dark depths of the ocean. Additionally, they have a set of smaller eyes that are more beneficial near surface level.


One of the most notable features of the Terrordon is its dual dorsal fins, which contribute to its exceptional balance and agility in the water. Its powerful tail fin enables bursts of speed up to 60 miles per hour, making it one of the fastest creatures in the ocean. The Terrordon's gills are highly efficient, allowing it to remain active for extended periods without needing to rest.


The Terrordon has become a target for hunters across Anarkand. Their teeth, prized for their sharpness and strength, are used to craft weapons and tools. The Terrordon's skin is sought after for its toughness and durability, often used in high-quality leather goods. Additionally, their meat is considered a delicacy in many cultures, further driving the demand for their capture.


The increased hunting pressure has led to a dramatic decline in Terrordon populations. What was once an abundant and thriving species is now on the brink of extinction. The Great Hunt, as it is now called, has devastated their numbers, with reports indicating that only a few thousand remain in the wild.
