A spiny Piscine Wyvern that has an array of dangerous effects at its disposal. It has large tentacles it can use as well. It is certainly an interesting creature.

Pterlochia
x Aquatic monsters with deadly toxins and octopus-like tentacles. If it grabs hold of you in the water, it could be a death sentence. One's best bet is to lure it onto land.


Physiology

The Pterlochia is a Piscine Wyvern that somewhat resembles a lionfish. It has red and white stripes going down its body. It also has many large spines that are retractable. It has a few small fins on its back, and two long, fin-like appendages at its side. These two fins are actually a set of tentacles that Pterlochia can use like fins. The tentacles separate into a set of two on each side when the monster feels threatened. These tentacles don't quite make it to the length of the tail, and they only have a couple of suction cups near the tips. They also have red and white stripes.

Behavior

Pterlochia usually ignore the bigger monsters, like Lagiacrus and Lophiil. Monsters like Epioth and even Ludroth however, it'll grab with its tentacles and drown them before devouring them. It is usually more defensive than aggressive, and can easily fend off foes with its large, toxic spines. Pterlochia can occasionally be seen in small schools, but they mostly travel alone. They'll move on to land if food is scarce, as they can survive on land for a decent amount of time.

Abilities

Pterlochia use a variety of status effects. A prick from its spines can cause very deadly poison. It'll extend its spines when it does a physical attack, such as a tail whip or hip check. Its tentacles secrete a toxin that affects the brain of its foes, and can cause a confusion-like state when hit with them. It can also spray a blinding fluid from the tips of its tentacles. When Pterlochia becomes enraged, its tentacles separate and allows it to spray more streams of the blinding fluid. It uses a lot of smacking and bashing attacks, and has very few ranged attacks. Although underwater, it will attempt to drown you by trying to grab you.
