The lagiacrus is a gargantuan creature, average size 125 feet, but ancient lagiacrus can reach titan-like sizes as they age. It prefers to make its lair in massive underwater caverns. Its striking blue scales make it blend into water easily, striking its prey quickly before it can react. Few creatures that have encountered a Lagiacrus have escaped alive, most simply becoming prey to the massive beast. Legends and ballads sung of the monster have given it the title "Lord of the Seas."
