  • Can be found in at least the following locations: (G-8), (I-8), (I-9), and (J-8).
  • Appears high above the ground level, and cannot be targeted or viewed on Widescan until they attack a player character and descend, similar to Ul'yovra and Om'yovra.
    • Moves through the air very quickly, at nearly double the speed of players, often making it difficult to engage in battle with due to latency issues.
    • On the ground, moves at normal speed, and can easily be outrun especially when using enhanced movement speed.
  • Does not always face the person with most enmity during battle, similar to dragons and other large enemies, using its tail and claws to attack those behind and on its sides.
  • Uses Storm Wing, Tail Lash, Reaving Wind, and Bloody Beak.

Historical Background[edit]

Amphiptere, Amphithere, or Amphitere is a term used to describe a type of legless winged serpent found in European heraldry. In the Dragonology series of fiction books, amphitheres are an American type of dragon, having only its wings as limbs, apart from four vestigial legs, which are very small and so unserviceable. There are three species of amphiptere (Draco Americanus tex, Draco Americanus mex, Draco Americanus incognito) living in the Americas. They are based on the feathered serpents of mythology rather than heraldic amphipteres (except for the "Draco Americanus tex", or in other words Am. amphiptere, which has moth-like wings and was once thought to be a giant moth).
