Dino Dossier: Seeker

Common Name Seeker
Species Chimaeram odiosus
Time Unknown
Diet Carnivore
Temperament Aggressive
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
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.
