The Darmegon are a species of insect-esque predators living on Prova. Its domesticated counterparts are the Nusi.

Description

Darmegon are small winged creatures that somewhat resemble an Earth cat, but with striking differences. The Darmegon has a pair of insectoid wings, insectoid wings, translucent stomachs, and have a large crystalline scythe growing from the end of their tails. These scythes secret a thick poison which is used for subduing prey that would otherwise escape.

Behavior

Darmegon are solitary, stealthy predators that hunt in the jungles of Prova. Their preferred hunting method is to utilize their wings to jump extremely high, landing on top of their prey and slicing at them with their tail-scythe. When not hunting, the Darmegon conserves energy by napping in high tree branches.

Combat

The Darmegon's scythe-tail is sharp and deadly. The scythe is made from the liquid exctreted from a gland near the tip of the tail, which over time solidifies and hardens into the hard crystal scythe. The gland also excretes the poison which soaks the hard blade, providing a deadly sting along with the blade's cut. The blade is brittle, however, and regularly breaks off from usage. It takes about a week for a new blade to grow sufficiently sharp for combat.

Uses

Darmegon poison is a valued narcotic used by the Kagzar, although the Jasemi prefer the toxins from the Nusi. A Darmegon is one of the most prized bounties a Kagzar hunter can claim, as its incredible speed and deadly sting make it very dangerous to hunt. The Kagzar enjoy eating the tail's scythe, as it tastes surprisingly sweet and provides a knock out narcotic punch.

Diet

The Darmegon are opportunistic hunters and will eat whatever they can kill. Pufbulo, Vostruo, even Jasemi or a Kagzar - the Darmegon is the most fearsome hunter in the jungle.
