Dino Dossier: Seeker

Common Name Seeker
Species Chimaeram odiosus
Time Unknown
Diet Carnivore
Temperament Aggressive
Domestication
Tameable No
Rideable No
Command admincheat summon Pteroteuthis_Character_BP
  • Wild: A highly hostile predator with a pack mentality, Chimaeram Odiosus has a voracious appetite, and will quickly swarm anything that possesses its favorite delicacy: Charge. Fact, Charge light seems to be crucial to its survival. When in its presence, they are strong and aggressive, but without it, they are weaker and quicker to flee.

  • Domesticated: For better or worse, there is no known method of taming Chimaeram Odiosus. If one must confront these creatures, remember to do so away from any charged light sources, as an empowered Chimaeram swarm can punch well above its weight class.

  • Known Information: Though distinct from any known species, Chimaeram's appearance is a hideous pastiche of bats and cephalopods, and as an unbiased professional, I have to say: I really hate these bloody things. Honestly.

Dino Dossier: Rock Drake

Common Name Rock Drake
Species Draconis obscurum
Time Unknown
Diet Carnivore
Temperament Aggressive
Domestication
Tameable Yes
Rideable Yes
Command admincheat summon RockDrake_Character_BP
  • Wild: Draconis Obscurum is a magnificent example of a predator that has flawlessly adapted to its environment. It is surrounded by cavern walls, so it developed powerful claws with which to scale them and colorful plumage on its anterior limbs that let it glide from perch to perch.

  • Domesticated: With its unparalleled mobility and undeniable power, Draconis Obscurum is a highly sought after mount. Survivors who successfully bring one back from its nesting grounds will suddenly find these caverns much easier to traverse, and that their enemies have become their unsuspecting prey. Even its saddle and rider are affected by its active camoflage, so a Survivor's enemies will never see them coming.

  • Known Information: But most dangerous of all? Its active camouflage, which lets it fade into the shadows and stalk its prey undetected.

    It has even adapted to the Nameless and The Reapers. Draconis' feathers will raise in warning when they are near, and this massive elegant lizard seems to be the Reaper's only natural enemy.

Dino Dossier: Reaper

Common Name Reaper
Species Unknown
Time Unknown
Diet Carnivore
Temperament Aggressive
Domestication
Tameable No
Rideable Yes
Command  admincheat summon Xenomorph_character_bp_female_c
  • Wild: At home in the cavern's deepest chambers, Reapers are towering, terrifying apex predators. Beyond overwhelming their prey with fangs and claws, Reapers can burrow underground to set an ambush and fire acidic projectiles from their tails.

  • Domesticated: If impregnated by a female Reaper, I strongly urge that the survivor kill the embryo via exposure to radiation. However, there are rumors that Reapers might imprint themselves on a survivor who possesses a Reaper pheromone gland.

    This has led some mad survivors with dreams of riding on the back of a Reaper to try seeing the gestation period through to the end, but that is extremely dangerous, not to mention disgusting.

  • Known Information: Yet it is their macabre method of reproduction that is their most frightening feature. Bizarrely, a female Reaper's tail doubles as a reproductive organ, but only when piercing human survivors. Once impregnated, the survivor carries the young reaper until it bursts from their chest in a grotesque, disturbing spectacle.

Dino Dossier: Ravager

Common Name Ravager
Species Canis barghest
Time Unknown
Diet Carnivore
Temperament Aggressive
Domestication
Tameable Yes
Rideable Yes
Command  admincheat summon CaveWolf_Character_BP_C
  • Wild: Anywhere else, Canis Barghest's powerful muscles, wicked claws, and fearsome countenance would put it near the top of the food chain. Yet in these caves, this common, lupine predator resides somewhere in the middle.

  • Domesticated: The strong legs of the Canis Barghest make it an effective mount for many survivors, particularly for long distance travel. While other creatures outshine it when it comes to bursts of speed, its stamina and ability to climb across both natural vines and artificial ziplines makes it a highly versatile travelling companion.

  • Known Information: That said, it is an intelligent hunter with an exceptional ability to adapt. For example, it has learned to utilize the zip lines that survivors have built as a means of travel, all on its own. Remarkable!

Dino Dossier: Nameless

Common Name Nameless
Species Unknown
Time Unknown
Diet Carnivore
Temperament Aggressive
Domestication
Tameable No
Rideable No
Command  admincheat summon Chupacabra_Character_BP_C
  • Wild:  The origins of the Nameless remain a mystery, but wherever they came from, these vicious creatures are nothing to scoff at, as they are rarely found alone. Common Nameless act in a subservient role to their pack's alpha, and will quickly heed its call to battle.

  • Domesticated: Though savage in nature, the Nameless are deceptively intelligent. When hurt, they burrow underground to recover and protect themselves from further damage. Fortunately, they are highly susceptible to damage and burns from charge based light sources, and exploiting this weakness can save a survivor's life.

  • Known Information: All attempts to pacify a Nameless have failed. Each one has an extremely powerful bond with its pack leader, and for survivors, it might as well be unbreakable.

Dino Dossier: Roll Rat

Common Name Roll Rat
Species Heterocephalus Magnus
Time Holocene
Diet Herbivore
Temperament Passive
Domestication
Tameable Yes
Rideable Yes
Command  admincheat summon MoleRat_Character_BP_C
  • Wild:  Bearing a strong resemblance to its relative, the Naked Mole Rat, Heterocephalus Magnus is a gentle giant that digs for plants and fungi with its imposing front teeth. While foraging, it often uncovers precious resources inadvertently, but survivors should claim them with caution, as this triggers an aggressive response.

  • Domesticated: While hardly a ferocious war beast, Heterocephalus is an effective transport that can carry up to three passengers. In theory, it could also be siege weapon, as its rolling attack can dent even metal. Fortunately, most survivors use a special saddle that deploys a protective canopy when it starts spinning, which not only keeps them from getting squished, but provides extra protection to the rider and mount alike. 

  • Known Information: When threatened, Heterocephalus rolls up into a ball to shield itself with the armored plates on its back, much like an armadillo. It then rolls around like an oversized bowling ball, smashing through rocks, walls, and hopefully its aggressor.
