Akura Galvan (アクラ・ガルバン, Akura Garuban) are Carapaceons.
Akura Galvan is a scorpion-like Carapaceon with a dark green metallic carapace, bright blue poisonous hairs that line its legs and sides, and red-violet crystals on its large claws and back. Its pincers have three claws each. The crystals form a three-pointed crest on its head and claws. Its tail has a short, sharp crystal protruding from either side on each segment and has an orb on the tip. This orb appears black but is actually translucent with a red center that gives off purple beams connecting to red spots that are only visible when it glows with power.
Akura Galvan can generate plasma inside its body, which is used to generate electricity. This electricity is often discharged from the sphere on its tail. Akura Galvan does so by firing beams of electricity from its body or by slamming its tail against the ground, causing an electric shockwave similar to an EMP. This shockwave can instantly paralyze hunters. The hairs on its body are laced with poison and can shaken off or rubbed against enemies.
Akura Galvan is an incredibly erratic creature. Sometimes it is a calm and placid, even timid, creature. Other times it is extremely aggressive, attacking anything that enters its territory. It is generally nervous and it will either flee or attack, depending on whatever it encounters.
Akura Galvan has so far only been seen in the White Lake.
Akura Galvan can always be found within the White Lake.
Akura Galvan is one of the top predators in the White Lake. It buries itself in sand and lies in wait for unsuspecting prey, and grips prey with its pincers. It incapacitates prey by either rubbing its poisonous hairs on the prey or shocking them with its tail. While a powerful predator in its own right, it needs to be wary of competitors such as Gasurabazura and Rukodiora. The large and aggressive Black Diablos and White Monoblos are both more than capable of killing an adult Akura Galvan so they are always avoided.
The crystals on its body are made from a special liquid, nourished by its nutrient rich, colorless blood, similarly to its relatives. It also produces gases in its body. These gases are made by its digestive track and are a byproduct of digesting food. These gases are sent to the orb on its tail. This orb is made from the same substance as its crystals. The orb contains a special electricity generating organ that emits a high-voltage electric current. This current flows through the conductive gases in the orb to create the colorful tendrils of electricity that are seen when its tail is charged. Afterwards, the electricity can be discharged from the orb via stress and trauma (i.e slamming it against the ground), or by overcharging the orb, forcing electricity to shoot out in the form of lightning bolts. Akura Galvan also sport bright blue hairs that are coated in a powerful toxin. These hairs serve as chemical defense against predators. These toxins are derived from the Kusubami they frequently prey on.
Akura Galvan is an incredibly erratic creature. Sometimes it is a calm and placid, even timid, creature. Other times it is extremely aggressive, attacking anything that enters its territory. It is generally nervous and it will either flee or attack, depending on whatever it encounters. Akura Galvan is both diurnal and nocturnal, meaning it can be active during either the day or night. When it is active at night it is known to look up and stare at the stars. The reason for this is unknown.
- Akura Galvan is a Burst Species (烈種).
- This Carapaceon was first discovered when researchers were sent to investigate the White Lake in search of new monsters. The research's teams equipment eventually began to malfunction for unknown reasons. The creature was eventually discovered when it emerged from hiding to attack the search team.
- It is completes immune to all Status Effects, except K.O.
- Akura Galvan's crystals, head, and pincers can be broken and its tail can be cut.
- Its concept was based off a plasma torch.
- Akura Galvan's wind pressure requires Windproof (Hi) to block.
- Akura Galvan's tremors require Tremor Res +1 to block.
