Physiology and Behavior
Vendelphasiuns are medium-sized Neopterons, about the same size as a Daimyo Hermitaur. Their abdomens, thoraxes, and legs are coated in golden hairs. Their claws are dark red. There is a thicker coating of golden hairs on their abdomens, which they can scratch off to poison the hunter if he/she touches one of the hairs. Their eyes are dull grey, their wings are dull grey, and their antennae are completely black. Their carapaces are completely black when without hairs.
Extremely protective of their territory, they kill whatever loiters for too long in their territory. They have a very wide range of territory once it has established one, and their territories are littered with the carcasses of what it has killed. Surprisingly, they don't kill for food. They instead kill to impress a mate. The more carcasses in a Vendelphasiun's territory, the better. These Neopterons are strict herbivores, and eat just about anything poisonous that grows.
These Neopterons can be infected with the Frenzy Virus. The color of their carapaces, claws and antennae don't change, but their hairs change to grayish-purple, their eyes change to a darker shade of grey, and their wings get a purple tint. The noises they make are now lower in pitch.
The existence of an Apex Vendelphasiun has not been confirmed.
A Vendelphasiun can be carved four times, have its wings, head, and abdomen broken, and drop an item.
Note: Items are listed in order from most common to least common.
|Vendelphasiun Shell||The shell of a Vendelphasiun. Covered in golden hairs that come in different sizes.|
|Vendelphasiun Wing||The wing of a Vendelphasiun. Light shone through the wing barely comes out the other side.|
|Vendelphasiun Hair||A hair from a Vendelphasiun's abdomen. The monster's diet of poisonous materials has made this hair toxic. Handle with extreme care.|
|Vendelphasiun Blood||The fluid that courses through a Vendelphasiun's body. Commonly used for making poisons that cities use for fending off attacks.|
|Vendelphasiun Eye||The eye of a Vendelphasiun. Very strong and flexible. Those who look through the eye claim they have seen another world.|
|Vendelphasiun Carapace||A hard piece of exoskeleton that once served as the walls of a living fortress. Covered in golden hairs.|
|Vendelphasiun Innerwing||A vital organ that helps Vendelphasiuns fly. Absorbs light shone on it, leaving only darkness.|
|Vendelphasiun Hair+||A hair from a Vendelphasiun's abdomen. The monster's diet of poisonous materials has made this hair extremely toxic. Danger!|
|Vendelphasiun Claw||The claw of a Vendelphasiun. It has small holes on the sharp tip that inject toxins. Victims attacked by this claw never survive.|
|Vendelphasiun Broth||The fluid that courses through a Vendelphasiun's body. This sample is extremely volatile, so it is kept in a glass container.|

|Vendelphasiun Iolite||A stunningly beautiful purple gem found inside a Vendelphasiun. Almost too beautiful to not believe that it came from a Neopteron.|
|Vendelphasiun Cortex||The rock-hard shell of a Vendelphasiun. Craft it, smelt it and smash it all you want, because this shell will always retain its strength.|
|Vendelphasiun Razorwing||A wing that once belonged to a formidable Vendelphasiun. Light shone on it is only absorbed, making the wing similar to a void.|
|Vendelphasiun Follicle||A hair from a Vendelphasiun's abdomen. The monster's diet of poisonous materials has made this hair contain a potent toxin. Just touching it is dangerous.|
|Vendelphasiun Hardclaw||The claw of a Vendelphasiun. Years of hunting and gathering has made this claw extremely sharp.|
|Vendelphasiun Essence||The fluid that courses through a Vendelphasiun's body. This sample is so volatile that it must be kept in a metal container at all times.|
