Human in size,
arcoelestis is a predator of striking appearance, an agile, bipedal
reptilian with tough green scales and magnificent multi-hued feathers on
its forearms and cresting its head. A merciless carnivore, it lures
prey by mimicking the sounds of creatures it kills, attacking with a
mouthful of ripping teeth and by flicking its tail forward, unleashing a
small volley of long, sharp scales from the tip. Lacking in raw power
and great speed, it relies on animal cunning, patience, and the weakness
of its preferred prey, the weak, the injured, and the sick (lowest HP).
The name, by the way, is a mash-up of the Latin words for "rainbow" which seemed apt given its plumage.
Thank you, Colin!
