Gairoth is a quadruped beast with a very reptilian countenance, but it sports fur crests on its throat-belly and back. It's armored with rigid plates all over its body, its head is big with iron-crushing jaws like a crocodile and muscular legs with great claws. Its tail is long and sharp.
Gairoth is a powerful predator that lives in harsh hot areas like deserts and volcanoes.
In its normal state it acts fairly reserved, making deliberate attacks and climbing ledges to pounce from above and ambush unwary hunters, its tail spins, claw swipes and charges are fierce yet agile. When enraged it loses all subtly and goes on a violent rampage, crashing into things and destroying the environment as it tries to eradicate hunters. It causes quakes by slamming the ground, hurls rocks with its tail, and can shoot giant air-bullets from its mouth to blast hunters at a distance. When enraged it can turn this into a sweeping wind-tunnel that can blow a whole group away. Like Zinogre, its agility and physical strength are tremendous.
