Official descriptions[]


This egg looks like cooled lava.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It gets very still when it gets too cold.

And look! It gives off heat now and is much more active! It must be close to maturing.


Lalopias Leviathans thrive in the heat and are even capable of swimming through lava. Their bodies can burn hot enough to melt through rock, which they will make use of to “swim” through the earth until they reach a body of water to hunt in. These dragons can control how much heat they give off, so the water they swim in could be pleasantly warm or boiling hot depending on if they consider you friend, foe, or food. Adults will lay eggs near volcanos where the ground and water is well heated, as the hatchlings are unable to generate much heat when they are first born and require warmth to survive. Lalopias Leviathans are capable of entering a state of torpor when they get too cold, allowing them to conserve their energy until the temperature warms up.

Additional information[]

Here's the Lalopias concept art. They were inspired by the sharks that live inside active volcanoes. Originally they were much more earthy and warm in color and had less armor. I was really struggling to get the lava look I had wanted them to have before Munin came in and really brought these guys to life. Send all your praises to Munin for the absolute stellar shading job on these guys.

Lalos also have a bit of thresher shark inspiration to them, so that plated tail of theirs? Watch out, they'll whip it at you faster than you'd expect and leave you with a nasty burning bruise.

Yes, these leviathans can go on land, but no, they don't really like to. They will explore every option they can to stay where they can swim before they finally drag themselves across solid ground. But if something is standing a bit too close to a body of water, they absolutely will temporarily beach themselves to catch their meal.
They can't breath fire, but as long as they have stones to eat, they can spit lava so don't think you're safe just because you've managed to get one up on land where they can't really maneuver well. These lava spitting trashcans will eat anything they can bite, too. Definitely make sure they know you're a friend, not a food.
Though these leviathans can swim in lava, they cannot breath it. They can however breath both water and air.
