Appearance Behemoths are large, purple, canine-esque creatures with two bull-like horns and a barbed fin on the back of it's neck. They are ferocious beasts with bodies made up almost entirely of muscle and tails that sway like an ancient sequoia. Behemoths are quadrupedal.
Tactics Behemoths are highly aggressive and will attack nearly anything on sight. After steeling itself for battle, they usually rend foes with long claws and horns to deal the killing blow. On occasion, they will intentionally expose their hindquarters in an attempt to catch would-be hunters off guard.
Lore Due to their great power and aggressive tendencies, Behemoths usually live and attack alone, but occasionally they can be found in small groups of two or three. Behemoths tend to remain in the area in which they have taken residence. Once the Behemoth has chosen it's Dominion, it's unlikely to share that space with any other creature except for other creatures it has deemed thoroughly more powerful. Even then, it will share it's Dominion in an uneasy alliance. It is possible to domesticate Behemoths but only if they are raised from an infant.
