Remiplegiace is an remipede-like Carapaceon that greatly resembles insects, much like its real-life inspiration. Its bites inject both paralyzing venom and digestive enzymes into prey, setting them up for a deadly blow, and it glowing spit renders targets helpless while attracting predators to their location, giving it time to escape.


Physiology

Remiplegiace
None Yet An insect-like Carapaceon found exclusively in the Plutonic Cavern. It is accustomed to dark environments, having a strong olfactory system that makes up for its lack of eyes, and its fangs secrete both neurotoxic venom and digestive enzymes. When disturbed, it spits glowing goo laden with sediment at foes, immobilizing them and making them easy pickings for larger monsters.


Remiplegiace greatly resembles a giant remipede, having no eyes, a short, armoured head, an elongated abdomen with thirty-two different segments, and a pair of paddle-like swimming appendages on each segment. Two long antenna can be found on its head, as well as a massive pair of fangs. Its body is navy blue, and a glowing, magenta spike and a glowing pink spot can be found on top of and below each segment, respectively. Beside each spike is two glowing, pink stripes, and it has a long, glowing, pink tail that acts as a pincer, similar to Seltas Queen's. Its body emits a faint magenta glow.

Ecology

Remiplegiace sits in the middle of the food chain, subsisting on smaller organisms, such as Fish, Epioth, Hermitaur, Ceanataur, Aqualamia, and Whirligigas, while being vulnerable to predation from larger ones, such as Zamtrios, Tidal Najarala, Lagiacrus, Atlantean Zinogre, Baruragaru, Taikun Zamuza, Ceadeus, and Narkarkos. As it spends all its life in dark, submerged caves, it has no eyes and cannot move around on land, but instead gets around through a strong olfactory system in the form of its long antennae and paddle-like appendages designed for swimming. Its fangs are connected to a secretory gland that releases both paralyzing neurotoxins and digestive enzymes, which softens their bodies while rendering them unable to fight back. It is bioluminescent, with many parts of its body glowing pink or magenta, and this is believed to be a method of luring in unsuspecting prey as well as warning would-be attackers that it is venomous. When disturbed, it will spit glowing, pink goo at opponents, with the goo designed to subdue attackers and attract their natural predators so they will give it time to escape, and this goo is also made from secretory glands. From time to time, it will gather sediment and swallow it, with the sediment being stored in a specialized sac and mixed with its goo so its power is increased, and this is because the bacteria found in the sediment aids it in digestion. Its tail has pincers that allows it to grab prey and tear them apart with shaking motions. The species is hermaphroditic, with ovaries being located in the head, the oviducts and testes being found in the seventh segment, and the vas deferens being located in the fourteenth segment, and it can reproduce by either mating with others of its species or itself.

Behavior

Remiplegiace is an opportunistic carnivore, and will try to eat anything smaller than itself. When disturbed, it will spit glowing goo mixed with sediment at targets or inject venom into them, which immobilizes them and gives it time to escape.

Abilities

Remiplegiace's bites secrete both paralyzing neurotoxins and digestive enzymes, rendering foes squishier and helpless. Its body secretes glowing goo that it uses as a defense mechanism, immobilizing foes while attracting their natural predators. While slow, it has a rigid carapace that protects it from harm. It can also use the Earth element in the form of its sediment-laden goo.

Habitat

Remiplegiace exclusively lives in the Plutonic Cavern.

Attacks

Paralyzing Bite

Remiplegiace rears back, then bites at the hunter, injecting them with neurotoxins and digestive enzymes. This attack deals medium damage and inflicts Paralysis and Defense Down.

Circling Bite

Remiplegiace will swim around the hunter in a circular motion as if looking for an opening, then springs at them with its jaws wide open. This attack deals medium damage and inflicts Paralysis and Defense Down.

Swimming Bite

Remiplegiace swims towards the hunter with its jaws wide open. This attack deals medium damage and inflicts Paralysis and Defense Down. If it misses the first time, it will turn around and try to bite the hunter again a second time.

Tail Swipe

Remiplegiace rears its tail back, then swings it twice in a row, first clockwise, then counter-clockwise. This attack deals medium damage, and it will move forward as it swings its tail.

Tail Grab

Similar to Seltas Queen, Remiplegiace hoists its tail upwards, then does a pinching motion with it. This attack deals low-medium damage and pins the hunter. Once this is done, Remiplegiace will grab the hunter with its tail and squeeze them, dealing low damage with every squeezing motion. If the hunter fails to escape this attack in time, it will bite them, dealing medium damage and inflicting Paralysis and Defense Down.

Spin

Remiplegiace coils up, then spins towards the hunter in a 360 degree motion. This attack deals medium damage.

Goo Ball

Remiplegiace fills its mouth with pink goo, then spits a ball of sediment-laden goo at the hunter while swimming backwards. This attack deals medium-high damage and inflicts Earthblight and Gooey.

Goo Beam

Remiplegiace rears up, fills its mouth with pink goo, then fires a beam of sediment-laden goo at the hunter in a sweeping motion. This attack deals medium-high damage and inflicts Earthblight and Gooey. It can use this either horizontally or vertically.

Trivia

  • Remiplegiace's name is a combination of remipede, plegia (paralysis), and luminescence.
  • When exhausted, Remiplegiace will fail to spray goo at the hunter. It can recover stamina by feeding on Fish, Epioth, Hermitaur, Ceanataur, or Aqualamia.
  • Most of Remiplegiace's anatomy, such as its insect-like appearance, the location of its organs, and its status as a hermaphrodite, was based on that of real-life remipedes.
  • Because the Plutonic Cavern is exclusive to High-Rank and above, Remiplegiace does not appear in Low-Rank quests.
  • Remiplegiace is unaffected by Flash Bombs, but Dung Bombs can be used to disorient it, similar to Khezu.
  • Breaking Remiplegiace's antennae will cause it to sometimes act like it was affected by a Flash Bomb, and breaking its tail will reduce the amount of time needed to escape its pin attack by half.
  • Remiplegiace's Light Bowgun is named after Jill Yager, who established the Remipedia class in 1981 (remipedes were known about before then, but they were not given an official class until 1981), and its Bow is named after Speleonectes lucayensis, the species she described as she established the class.
  • The goo the hunter gets wrapped in will always be pink, just like the kind the Remiplegiace spits.
