Sicarapax is a large and surprisingly agile Bird Wyvern that has a build similar to another famous wyvern called Seregios, but these similarity's evolved due to convergent evolution and similar lifestyles. These wyverns are infamous for their intelligence and powerful legs adorned with sickle like killing claws that they use to pin down prey. Their hind limbs have sometimes been referred to as second wings, but this statement is false as they don't serve much purpose in flight and are adorned with feathers for display purpose alone. Their tails end in a fan of feathers that aid them in flight. Their entire body is covered in a coat of feathers and explosive conductive quills. Their feathers are a silver in color with their quills being a light blue color and their underside and being a dark grey color.
They are known to pick fights with other members of their species and even other large monsters, currently it is unknown as to why they do this. They are known to adorn their nests with the body parts of other monsters to impress their mates.
Sicarapax are excellent fliers and are even known to engage other wyverns in combat during flight! Sicarapax are known to produce large amounts of electricity and they have hollow modified quill like stuctures that can conduct and store the large amounts of energy and explode and can be used to form traps to aid in hunts. They have powerful wings that aid them well in flight and unlike most wyvern species their wings are composed of blade like feathers rather then skin. They have thick coats of feathers the warms Sicarapax in cold climates and cools them in warm climates. The strength and sharpness of a Sicarapax talons is strong enough to crush solid rock.

- Suborder: Bird Feet
- Infraorder: Wing Runners
- Family: Sicarapax
Although once native only to the Primal Coastline Sicarapax have since spread far and wide, they are able to thrive in a vast array of habitats thanks to their insulating coats of feathers that can keep them warm in even in the coldest of tundras and cool in the most sun baked deserts. They tend to frequent rocky or hilly areas and are quite adept at climbing.
Sicarapax are macro-carnivores that require large territory. Due to their capability of living in a number of different environments, Sicarapax compete with a large number of other large predators including monsters such as Tigrex, Astalos and Yian Garuga which are fearsome predators themselves, but they most take care as Sicarapax is quite dangerous itself. There is an interesting trait that Sicarapax has evolved, in some circumstances they are known to form loosely organized packs or gangs to bring down larger more powerful prey they normally wouldn't hunt while solitary, in these gangs they have been known to hunt other large monsters such as the Monoblos, Diablos, Doramboros, Gammoth and even some of the smaller elder dragon species on rare occasion, but events like these are extremely rare and often end up in feeding frenzies. Sicarapax when not in their fearsome mobs tend to specialize on smaller prey such as Kelbi, Bullfango and Anteka.
Sicarapax are generally calm monsters compared to other macro-carnivores and generally spend their time roaming their territory, but this behavior quickly changes when they sense other large predatory monsters in their land causing them to attack relentlessly the intruder, the only other large predatory monsters they tolerate is their own kind. During the mating season males will build nests out of various materials including rocks, tree limbs and other monsters body parts to impress the larger females. They are attracted to large amounts of energy which often leads them into conflicts with other thunder element wielding monsters and some towns and citys.
