Zanskar (ザンスカール, Zansukāru) is a Leviathan.

Physiology

Zanskar is a Leviathan that shares some similarities with Gobul and is reminiscent of rays. Its scales are primarily navy blue with a white underside. It has two gray spots on its back near its head with the space between them forming a T shape. It has two large triangular pectoral fins on its side with white tips. Above its face are two horns that curve slightly inwards, forming a crescent. Its tail is long, thing, and ends in a white barbed spike. Its limbs are fin-like, akin to Gobul. It has three dorsal fins on its backside, the middle being larger than the other two.

Abilities

Zanskar's fins are sharp and blade-like, having a cutting edge. These blade-like fins can cut through bone and armor like paper. Its barbed tail can secrete a powerful poison that wears down predators, making then easier to take down. Zanskar is most noted for its ability to draw in moisture from the air into its mouth. It then shoots the collected moisture in the form of blast made of air and water.

Behavior

Zanskar is a docile Leviathan that spends most of its time wandering about on the river bed, searching for mollusks and crustaceans to feed on. However, if disturbed it can become highly aggressive towards whatever provoked it.

Habitat

Zanskar prefers warm and humid areas like the Flooded Forest, Jungle, Primal Forest, Sunken Hollow, and the Swamp.

  • Its horns, pectoral fins, and dorsal fins can be broken. Its tail can be severed.
  • When in Rage Mode, its tail spikes and horns elongate.
  • The water tunnel attack takes longer to charge when fatigued, making it easier to stop by attacking it.
