Elemental creatures of earth and fire, fyrhunds make their nests and lay their eggs in shallow pools of lava within active volcanoes. Roughly canine in appearance, they are the size of small bears. Though their outer skin is covered in black, rock-like armor plating, they bleed viscous lava in place of blood. They are fierce carnivorous hunters, though only the very young eat meat. Older fyrhunds eat stone and even metal, which helps to harden their natural armor. They tend to be solitary unless raising a family, in which case they are extremely territorial and aggressive. These hellish creatures have the ability to unhinge their jaws and either breathe fire or spit heated acid.
