Kalamos is an Elder Dragon that is fought in High Rank and it has a G-Rank Variant. It is theorized to be connected to the Fatalis and its "Bretheren". It appears in Monster Hunter Aetheria Frontier.
|The Black Dragon of Wrath . It is so fierce and powerful, Not one mortal has dared to provoke it's wrath, and lived to tell the tale. It is a Dragon Shrouded in Mystery....|
A black elder dragon that has the structure of a Kushala Daora, but it's size is on par with Fatalis. It's head is sharp and pointed, and has three sets of backwards facing horns, red eyes, and a large, orange "third eye" on the top of the head. It's wings are large and resemble larger versions of a Fatalis'. It's tail is long and whip like. It's Teeth in the pointed mouth are sharp as are the talons.
It can breath a flamethrower breath of Blackish colored Flame, and spread explosive scales, similar to Teostra, But it may have other abilities......
It is an aggressive monster, even by elder dragon standards. It is so fierce and powerful that not even the Revalius region's hunter's guild dares to hunt this creature, lest they provoke it's wrath.
When mounted, the hunter will be on the Kalamos' head, similar to fatalis. The Kalamos will try to shake the hunter off by thrashing the head or biting upwards. Sometimes it will roar, which requires High Grade Earplugs to block without holding on. Once toppled, the Kalamos will be on it's sides in the fashion of a Kushala Daora, leaving it open to attacks until it gets up.
Rage and Tired States
When Enraged, it's Third eye will open, and orange trails will come out of it when Kalamos moves, and it's normal eyes will glow a bright red. It will huff black smoke from it's mouth as well.
Kalamos cannot get fatigued.

The Black Dragon of Wrath
- Area: Oblivion Kingdom
The Hunter(s) come to the abandoned ruins of Oblivion Kingdom. The Hunter(s) wander for a while, yet they can't shake the feeling that they are being watched.
Meanwhile, the bloodshot red vision of an unknown creature is staring right at the Hunter(s).
When the Hunter(s) turn to look at a source of an unnatural presence, they see nothing! They turn again to breifly see a tail of a large black creature descend at the other side of the kingdom walls before disappearing from sight. Whatever it was, the creature was toying with the hunter(s)!
The Hunter(s) stare at that area for a while, before the large shape of the Kalamos starts to ascend into the air, staring at the hunter(s), before landing in front of them and licking it's reptilian chops at the thought of fresh meat.
Then the Kalamos stands on it's hind legs and makes an ear piercing, banshee scream like roar, and the hunter(s)'s fight for their life/lives begins!

Fan fiction appearances
Monster Hunter Hurricurse Series

Ecology and Lore
Kalamos is classified as an Elder Dragon, and is a very powerful one. It is said to be at least distantly related to the Fatalis brethren, and may be the Continent of Aetheria's evolutionary parrallel of the Fatalis Species. However, it does have relatives, the Emerald Kalamos, and the Crystal Kalamos.
So far, It has only been sighted in Oblivion Kingdom, which it has claimed as it's territory, but has been said to wander to any place it pleases....
Due to it not being seen interacting with other monsters, it's ecological niche is largely unknown, though its teeth point it out towards being at least a carnivore. But it's unnatural abilities make it hard to fit in an ecological niche even then.
A Powerful and unnatural beast, the Kalamos has scales that provide an un-parralleled defence, and it's teeth and talons rip prey asunder. It breaths a Blackish colored flame breath and spreads explosive dust that are similar to Brachydios' slime or Teostra's explosive dust, which the Kalamos uses to blast anything out of existence by igniting it with it's fire breath. It's most disturbing feature, however, is it's "Third Eye" on the top of it's head. It is said that it can use this eye to stare at one's very soul, driving them insane, though this has never been proven.
It is said to be immortal, and will ressurect if slain.
Hostile to anything that enters it's territory, the Kalamos will use it's Fire breath, explosive scales and malicious intelligence to eliminate the existence of any intruders to it's territory...
There are many legends surrounding the Kalamos, the most popular being The Legend of the Black Wrath, which is said to tell the story of the destruction of what remained of the Ancient Civilization in the Revalius Region of the Aetherian Continent, right after the war between the Ancient Civilization and Elder Dragons in the Old World and New World, as well as telling a warning of what the Dragon is capable of doing and will do!
The Black Dragon of Wrath.......
Has come to destroy us who have sinned against nature......
Ballistas and Cannons......
All are useless......
Spears and swords......
Not even a scratch.....
It's wrathful eyes lay a gaze on the kingdom of those who betrayed nature......
Sacred blessings and prayers will not help us now! They count for nothing against this king of terror.....
As he destroys..... People are turned to ash, buildings crushed to dust......
Screams of terror, delight it's bloodlust........
It burns the earth, boils the water, melts steel, and unleashes eternal darkness upon us all.....
His name is Kalamos, the Black Dragon of Wrath.....
He is the darker side of Nature, coming to destroy those who sinned against her.....
You can run for your life, you may have only seconds left to live......
You could call for help, but no one will hear your screams.....
You can hide, but he will find you......
Kalamos! The Black Wrath!
Remind us shameful sinners who will bring destruction to those who betrayed mother nature.......
Remind us that our corruption is unworthy of forgiveness, as you bring us to extinction......
Show us what it is like to suffer forever as we burn to oblivion........
Show us that we were doomed to be erased for defying the laws of nature......
Not even the innocents will be spared in your wrathful presence.

Soul Slaver Kalamos
Kalamos has a G-Rank Variant that appears in late G-Rank.
A Zombified and demonic looking form of the Black Kalamos said to have resurrected from it's still beating heart, and, according to legend, is also said to gain new power from devouring souls of people.
It's body has pieces of it's hide looking like it's rotting off slowly but surely, to the point where it's muscle and bone is visible through said patches of hide. It's wings' webbing are ripped, and it's eyes are virtually nonexistant, aside from eye sockets with red pupils, and it's third eye is always open and is an eerie cyan/bright blue color.
It is now able to use the Black Flame Element in many terrifying ways, as well as make "Black Flame Wisps", which act on a simple instinct to kill under the command o the Kalamos.
Same as before
Rage and Tired State
When enraged, it's Eyesockets will leak out a "Mask" of Black Flame, and it's veins will glow a bright blue/cyan.

- It's Head can be scarred twice, it's wings scarred twice, it's underbelly scarred, front claws broken twice, and it's tail scarred and then severed.
- It will go into rage mode only when it is at 50% or lower health, and once that happens, it is permanent until it is slain.
