Physically: The Zanthien are large snake-like flying creatures which look similar to how a wyvern is described in medieval history. They are built for constricting, but also contain a nasty and fatal poison if not attended to quickly enough. They have extremely well developed senses all around and are equally as fast in the air as they are on land, making them formidable and difficult foes to follow. It has also been found that, like dragons, they can teleport through Between when needed.
Socially: Zanthien always travel in family groups known as "Hordes" which consist of anywhere from 15 to 30 creatures of varying ages. They are always lead by the largest male and female who are typically a mated pair and work together to command their group. If a Horde becomes to big, they will force some of their own children out. They will favor new blood over that which their Horde is over populated with. However, they are not friendly to other Hordes and battles are not uncommon.
Dietary: Zanthien are carnivorous through and through. They will eat anything and hunt anything that moves. Depending on how much food is available to them, they may go after dragons or humans alike, but typically go after wild and domesticated animals. Herd beast are particularly unsafe.
Hunting Habits: Zanthien always hunt in packs of three to five with others nearby for back up.
Mentally: They are simple minded and speak maybe one or two words, but primarily rely on sounds and body language overall. They are often compared to Whers in intelligence.
Playable Creature: No.
