The Mosattan Scorpion is a species of giant two-tailed scorpions that roam the The Great Tentottan Desert. It has become a symbol of bad luck for the Mosattan people after the fall of The Lost Kingdom of Mosat.
- eight legs
- females have one tail, with a venomous stinger at the end
- males have two tails, each with a venomous stinger at the end
- two pinching claws
The mosattan scorpion is a ferocious predator. After hunting and feasting upon it's prey, the females will lay near-hatched eggs in the mouths of their victims.
As the baby scorpions wriggle free of their egg prisons, they devour their way out to the surface of the now-rotting corpse.
Suluca - a highly potent poison refined from mosattan scorpion venom.
The mosattan scorpions can be found everywhere in The Great Tentottan Desert, particularly in derelict and sand-swallowed buildings where weary travellers seek shade; the scorpions give them eternal rest.
