Medurion (マドゥサガ, Madousaga) is a Leviathan.

Physiology

Medurion are large Leviathans with beige, gelatinous skin decorated with crimson stripes and purple specks. The tail is long and laterally flattened with a caudal fin with jagged edges. It has webbed feet and round toes, similar to a frog. Medurion's head is spherical with short, U-shaped snouts. Its eyes are red with blue sclera.

Abilities

Medurion's entire body is laced with stinging cells. Once contact is made with prey, these cells inject said prey with a potent paralytic agent. This paralysis can last for hours depending on how much of the toxin is injected. It has a prehensile tail and can grip objects, such as prey, with it. From its mouth it can expel its long, tentacle-like tongue that is used as a whip. This tongue also possess nematocysts and is also prehensile.

Behavior

Medurion are not very aggressive or territorial. They are actually rather docile and prefer to avoid conflict, incapacitating prey with its paralyzing toxin and then fleeing.

Habitat

Medurion is found within the Deserted Island, Flooded Forest, Marshlands, Misty Peaks, and the Primal Forest.

Ecology

Information

Leviathans with soft, gelatinous bodies that are laced with paralyzing cells. A single touch can paralyze prey for hours, allowing Medurion to eat at its leisure. Its body dehydrates easily, so it never strays far from water.

Ecological Niche

Medurion is at the middle of the food chain. They feed primarily on fish and crustaceans.

Biological Adaptations

Medurion's body is mostly made up of a gelatinous material that acts similar to skin. This "gelatin" is primarily composed of water, approximately 70-80%. It has a cartilaginous skeleton, similar to cartilaginous fish (sharks, rays). Medurion sting their prey using nematocysts, also called cnidocysts, stinging structures located in cells called cnidocytes. Contact with a Medurion can trigger millions of nematocysts to pierce the skin with a lance and inject paralyzing venom. These nematocysts are most abundant on its claws, tail, and tongue.

Behavior

Medurion are not very aggressive or territorial. They are actually rather docile and prefer to avoid conflict, incapacitating prey with its paralyzing toxin and then fleeing.

Notes

  • Medurion is obviously based off of jellyfish. Its tentacle comes from sea cucumbers which are known to eject their guts to deter predators.
  • Its head and front claws can be broken, and its tail can be severed.
  • When low on stamina its body turns a light gray color and it won't be able to paralyze you.
    • It will go to the waterfall in Area 2 to recover stamina.
