Inktober 2019 Day 3: Bait

Today's Prompt:

A playful name for the unfortunate character who drew the short straw.

A floral material used to lure in a particular monster, or the age-old

tradition of gathering your cadre to hunt the monster down.

Bait is used to draw something out. What is it? What does it summon?

 

Tell us of some bait from your world. What is its story?

This prompt actually made me work on two articles, but this was the one i felt was best fitting as it actually talked about the bait portion. the other article was the bait itself, it needed love too ;p

I just got a great idea to make a dragon species based on juvenile copperheads, which have brightly colored tails to bait prey to come close enough to strike. This is what I've got so far. https://www.worldanvil.com/w/andraous-northwhitewolf/a/dragon-lure-article
