Flabellius is is a large brute wyvern that lives in dry, hot areas
Ecology & Appearance
Flabellius' most prominent feature is the set of bone-like plate structures on the end of its tail. These protrusions separation and position on the tail are most important as this fan like tail, is the main defence mechanism of the flabbelius. The bone-like plates slowly shrink down and move up the back of the body, causing an armour plating along the flabbelius' body. These plates are placed and sized similarly to glavenus' spikes. Another feature of the Flabellius are the small dish like protrusions on the sides of the flabellius, these are mostly used as small pockets to carry around dust when moving. Flabellius has a large sack on its neck which is used to store water. This used not only for defensive use, but also to store water to keep flabellius hydrated for long trips. Flabellius are a sandy brown/khaki in colour.
Attacks and abilities
Flabellius is most well for it's storage and use of various powders which it not only scavenges from dead Malfestio, but of the plants and roots they eat. They put the powders to good use, spraying the powder and blowing it towards hunters with its fan like tail. Flabellius does not only use special powders but also normal dust and wind pressure to defend itself from predators. Like almost all brute wyverns Flabellius is quite fast and will fling it's weight around. Flabellius also shares moves with glavenus, duramboros and uragaan. Flabellius will also do the occasional water attack, like plesioth's water beam.
Unlike most brute wyverns, Flabellius is more like gureadomosu, in that it is more passive towards hunters, especially when they are random encounters, as there have been accounts of flabellius even helping hunters when they are random encounters, with mostly older infertile males being hunters prey.
Flabellius live in dry dusty areas, as this where they prey if Bnahabra and dried roots, cacti and other plants are abundant, along with the occasional dead malfestio. This allows for a good supply of food powder/dust for defenseive mechanisms.
Notes and Trivia
- The head, back, tail tip and legs of flabellius can broken
- The tail itself can be severed
- The flabellius comes from the greek fan flabellum and the genus of carnotaurus, abelliosaur
- There are a few cases of hunters taming Flabellius and using them as pets, hunting animals and transport through desert areas, though these cases are rare
