In the days before the Great War, this species of the lizard family could be found inhabiting wetlands across the continent of Quon, subsisting primarily on insects and other small animals. Their deadly arsenal of eight auburn-toned spikes, used for both intimidation displays as well as to dispatch their prey, were known to contain a potent and lethal poison. They met their demise at the hands of the beastmen hordes, whose careless overhunting led to the eventual extinction of the species.

[edit] Historical Background

In Irish folklore, the Peiste (also called Piast, Horse-Eel, Hair-Eel) was an eel-like monster or serpentine dragon or wyrm that resides in lakes. It has been described as a thick-bodied serpentine animal 7 yards long with a mane of hair down its spine. One particular location it was thought to reside at was Lough Ree, a lake in central Ireland known for commercial eel fishing.
