Its terrifying presence has led to legends and stories being passed down through generations.

The bharasdail is a formidable predator that combines its physical prowess with its supernatural abilities. It utilizes its massive wings to soar through the skies, scanning the landscape for potential prey.

The creature’s three legs provide it with stability and agility, enabling swift movements and sudden strikes. It is relentless in its pursuit and has been known to chase individuals with malicious intent. Survivors recount tales of narrowly escaping the creature’s grasp by seeking refuge within their homes.
