Elder Dragons [eld-er drag-ons]:
The Elder Dragons, or the Elder Powers as they are sometimes called, have been the subject of countless superstitious tales passed down by the many tribes. It is difficult to divulge their full truths. Elder Dragons are a species of super dragonlike creatures with scales of flame, light, shadow or darkness. They are the most powerful beings to have ever walked the face of Covent under the gods. Elder Dragons are also said to possess the gifts of speech and thought unlike normal dragons that are just beasts.

The Elder Dragons were divided into two sects of good and evil. They were not born on the plane of Covent and brought their war to this realm. The good Elder Dragons looked more like dragonish griffons and were swathed in feathers and fur of light and white flames that shined brighter than a Phoenix Bird. The evil sect looked like burning shadow dragons and had scales of shadow, darkness and dark fire. The evil Elder Dragons hated the good Elder Dragons and the good Elder Dragons hated them back.

The Elder Dragons could have ruled all of Covent, but for their war. Legend tells that the Elder Dragons clashed in the early histories and that their mere clashing overthrew mountains, caved in valleys and set entire forests ablaze. Mortals hid among the rocks like rats. The Elder Dragons were said to be older than Covent itself. They disappeared in the Lost Eras, though mad sailors still swear to this day of seeing them along the coasts of the Mystic Waters in the Sea of Mourning.

Few know whatever became of the Elder Dragons. Some say they left this world lest their war destroy all life. Others say they were banished by the gods. Many say they never existed at all, but a few prophecies linger that speak of their inescapable return…

Giant Sea Worm [gi-ant sea worm]:
Giant sea worms of the great deep seas grow to an enormous size, some even growing longer than ships. Giant Sea Worms prey on whales and large marine mammals, by constricting around their prey and crushing or suffocating their meal. Giant Sea Worms have been known to mistake ships for whales and have sunken more than their fair share of ships. Giant Sea Worms have been hunted for the sticky water-proof goo they secrete to build layers. Sea worm gel is often been used by sea worms to create air pocket tunnels in the deep seas where they lay eggs. The sea worm gel has been used by various sea peoples to create underwater breathing pockets and to keep unwanted water out of deep sea grottos.

[ge-low liz-ard]:
The Gilolizard is a close relative to the Gila Monster, except it inhabits cold regions like the Ice Marshes. It is also highly venomous, but is capable of spitting poison making them even more dangerous. The Gilolizard lays a gooey pod it plants in the ground and hibernates through the harsh winters. Poison-makers are willing to pay top coin for Gilolizard venom..

Small glowing life forms that float through the air and feed on pollen of rare species of trees. Glowkrill look like little tiny bulbs of light and travel in shoals that tend to move like a single large collective entity. Glowkrill are often mistaken for some kind of mystical life form or something that came down from the gods, but Glowkrill remain the favorite food of Sky Whales. Glowkrill migrate with the seasons and feed all over the world.

old Falcon [gold fal-kan]:
This majestic bird of prey is sacred to Jui-Rae. The Elves believe the Gold Falcons fly into the heavens and commune with their sun goddess, Dalinaria. It is also said that a bond can form between a chosen Elf and a Gold Falcon, who functions as a Spirit Guardian.

Great Tusked Whale [great-tusked-wail]:
Tusked Whales for short are the fiercest of the Baleen Whale family. Tusked Whales are gentle giants who feed on krill, plankton and small fish, but will defend themselves fiercely if provoked. Tusked Whales use their tusks to fend off large predators like sea dragons and even larger predators. Tusked Whales are feared for capsizing ships since the whales sometimes mistake vessels for large marine predators. Heightened whaling activity has also increased the frequency of random attacks.

Haragulls [hair-a-guls]:
Native arctic species of seagulls who live along the southern coastline of Doljinaar. Considered a general nuisance at docks and the capital, Haragulls are blamed for stealing fish and other marine catches from countless frustrated fishermen.

Hydra [hi-dra]:
Hydras are becoming an increasingly rarer sight on Covent, but these immense multi-headed dragons can still be found occasionally in swamps and marshlands. It is a little known fact that fish are one of the specie’s favorite delicacies. Hydra have poisonous breath. They are incredibly difficult to kill since they can regenerate and only severing the right head will slay the creature.
