The Hell Pigs
An Onker is a fiery pig that resides in the Uncharted Deserts of Elone. They look as if they are from Hell, which is what gives them their nickname of "The Hell Pigs."
Biological TraitsOnkers are grey and orange pigs with trails of fire coming off of their backside. They are rather plump, often weighing around 1050 pounds and being about 6 ft tall when they reach maturity. For this, many Onkers raised in captivity are bred when they reach maturity and then killed, as they can be incredibly dangerous when they are older and larger.
LifespanOnkers live for 10 years, normally reaching maturity at 9. This gives them two years at maturity, at which point the flame on their back begins to burn at its full capacity until eventually it sputters out completely and the Onker dies, provided they do are not killed before then.
FlameThe Flames on the back of an Onker is produced from their own body heat. Within their bodies, they have some small portal that mana flows from, like the brains of most sentient species on Totania, where all Magic comes from. Their body converts this Magic into heat, which keeps the Onker alive. All excess heat is expelled from the back in the form of a flame.
The Uncharted DesertThe Uncharted Desert is a large part of the Eastern Continent of Elone. It is a region fully made of sand, which has never been mapped out in completion. Many maps exist, but those that map some areas that others don't do not seem to line up, causing much confusion. It is home to the Gnomes and Emetians, who live in various cities and villages around the desert, though the amount of them whose locations are known could be counted on one hand.
