Sea serpents are a rare breed of dangerous aquatic predators of many
shapes and sizes, their scales and eyes having been found in every
shade of the rainbow. The most common breed tends to have thick coils,
scales around the face that puff out like feathers when drawing forth a
breath, a pair of dorsal crests, three sets of long whisker-like fins
about its mouth, twin ivory-like fangs, thin translucent lips, and huge
round lidless eyes. Several varities of this serpent are known to have
a single horn about their forehead, in the likeness of a unicorn. While
their bodies surface above the water from time-to-time, the sea serpent
is an udnerwater creature and will quickly drown in air.
These fearsome reptiles frequently haunt the Flathead Ocean. Seafareres
are cautioned to keep their distance, as even the most deadly tipped
arrows and spears poke harmless off the serpent's thick scales. From
above, they may be seen gliding smoothly through the water like a long,
think ribbon of darkness beneath the rippling surface.
mating embrace of two sea serpent's is seen as a tightly entwined coil
sailing along, oblivious to all else. Baby sea serpents on average are
the size of small whales, and it is known that the Wizard of
Frobozz actually kept a baby sea serpent as a pet until it was killed
by the Second Dungeon Master in 948 GUE.
There is common
superstition that it is bad luck to be seen by a sea serpent. Some
countered this claim with equally absurd superstition, believing that
the beasts were near-sighted.
sea serpent filet is also well-known speciality, especially in
Antharia. There was a mammoth sea serpent known as Oceanus.
