Dodenarhar

Basic Information

Anatomy

The Dodenarhar is commonly mistaken as a type of wyvern due to its appearance, this is incorrect the Dodenarhar is observed to be closer in relation to the Fey and Celestial beings than draconic, despite the similar appearance.

The Dodenarhars anatomy is only been observed by the Dodenarhar Rangers , and only using optical assistance allowing the rangers to keep a safe distance. Below are the observations that have confirmed, which in the rangers definition is to be observed on multiple occasions, by different rangers, and in different ranges. This is due to the mysterious and deadly nature of these creatures.

The Dodenarhar have a crest of spines around their heads these seem to have blood-vessels in which they can push and pull blood into them causing the spikes to become luminescent green which can settle to a deep forest green.

  The Dodenarhar have a set of wings which operate as their front limbs as well, they can fly and have used their wings mainly in the pursuit of prey. Observations of flight are rare and the Dodenarhar seem to prefer to stay on the ground as much as possible.

The tail which is typically at minimum double the length of the body and on some individuals up to 4 times, this is observed to be the 5th limb. This is utilised similarly to an elephant's trunk and it is observed to be very strong. It is observed to be used as a weapon by the Dodenarhar to kill and drag its prey.

Dodenarhar have a slim body figure,

Genetics and Reproduction

The Dodenarhar are magical creatures created by large scale death. Most commonly this is Plagues and diseases in living populations of sentient creatures, which causes the magical distortion which creates a Dodenarhar. The most potent example of this is the Fall of the City of Vanah.

Growth Rate & Stages

Very little is known about the Dodenarhar growth, Observations from the respected Sage Lord Vas'ni from the Church of Bane who interviewed survivors of attacks Dodenarhar. Most reports of the newly created creatures agree that they are at least 10ft tall and 20ft long (Head to Tail) and only ever grow with age approximately 2 -5 ft per year till they reach their maximum size.

There is no known death of a Doddenarhar, no dead body of these creatures has ever been observed nor found. Some say they simply fade away after many centuries, however, there has yet to be any observation of this.

Ecology and Habitats

Dietary Needs and Habits

The Dodenarhars are the apex predator, observations from attacks, claim these creatures are incredibly fast and use their tail as a 5 limb. The observations from the Dodenarhar Rangers are relatively consistent that the Dodenarhar will kill without care if they are threatened or if hungry. They exhibit a hunting behaviour that is best explained by Captain Raji of the Dodenarhar Rangers .  
Dodenarhar are vicious hunting creatures that somehow make themselves beautiful despite being the most feared creatures in our word. In all my years of working with them, I have no doubts that if the rangers didn't ensure the barriers were upheld that many more of us wouldn't be here today.
