Parents: Korulantis Diamis x Yleszt
Species: Shadow Hydra (1/2 Tris'Hath Hydra, 1/2 Shadowling of
Destiny / The Twisted Fate
Chaos Quotient: 95%
Size: The more they eat the more they grow, but regular feeding
should end up with a hydra between 20-30' at the shoulder at a couple
years of age.
Description: A sleek brown hydra with black paws and a lighter
beige belly. Shadows swarm around it like a black miasma of death. The
crowned reigning head and the two subordinate heads are solid. The shadowy
mass of their manes can shift and form up to fifteen other natural heads,
which otherwise may only be glimpsed as eyes in the darkness...
Personality: Barkshredbite has three keywords: Chaos, Intelligence
and Temper. Though he is very intelligent, he really has never even
thought of reining in his desires. Why should he when he is an incarnation
of destruction? And that bit of upping satisfaction is pure BS. He can be
sated now and destroy something else later. There's no need to wait. His
temper is awful and mercurial. His train of thought chaotic and he often
changes direction mid-sentence.
*Breath Weapons (Acid, Fire) The ability to breathe either a
gout of fire or a spray of acid.
*Destruction-Feeding, Rather than simply consuming meat,
these hydras can destroy to feed. The most delicious and sustaining meals
are the energies released when living things die, which they can absorb
simply by being present. They can also consume any energies released when
they enact their destructive powers.
*Destruction Powers, These hydras are an incarnation of chaos
and destruction. Destroying anything around them comes with natural ease,
not from brute strength but from force of will.
*Insubstantial Form, Although they appear solid, these hydras
can will themselves into an insubstantial shape. Like a thick cloud of
smoke or fog, they can barely be touched.
*Natural Spellcaster, After reaching their first decade in
age, the hydra begins to develop magical ability. The older they get, the
more powerful they can become.
*Shapeshifting, The ability to shapeshift into any other
form, without limitation.
*Telepathy, The ability to communicate mind-to-mind.
*Teleportation, The ability to teleport anywhere within sight
or that can be strongly visualized in the mind.
*Verbal Speech, The ability to communicate in spoken words.
Barkshredbite floated through space. In his incorporeal form, he did not
need to breathe. He had known this in his core. And it was also in his
core that he knew there was a place to call home. Sadly, the coordinates
of home were lost to him, but he knew he'd know he was there when he
One of his many eyes caught a small light that seemed to invite him. He
needed no more invitation to speed down upon the planet and to set his
destruction at work. Rocks turned to dust, water turned to ash, air burned
and irritated as his breath weapon wreaked havoc on the local fauna and
Barkshredbite laved himself on the demise of life, he feasted on the
terror of the lives that were lost. And just as fast as he'd started, he
lost interest and returned to space. A hole remained in his chest, the
yearning for home once more the biggest drive in his mind. The planet he'd
feeded from was left half-eaten, alive but barely so. Barkshredbite didn't
look back, the place was already forgotten as he journeyed on.
A single word resounded in his mind: "Elsewhere."
That word sounded so pleasant. That was clearly where he needed to be,
where he needed to go.
He was coming.
