The luvandgaurn is a huge aquatic beast, often ranging up to 50 feet in length. With a long, thick body, four flippers, and a long flat tail, the creature achieves amazing speeds. It has a short neck and a massive head with a long, broad snout. Its massive jaws bear a veritable hedge of massive fangs from 6-8 inches in length. The beast’s large eyes are ideally suited for hunting in the deep seas and murky waters.

Luvandgaurn range throughout the known world; they are air-breathers that can survive in salt or fresh water bodies, though they can only spawn in freshwater, normally in and near swamps. When young, they are truly vicious but are also preyed upon by many other predators. As they grow, they become the dominant predators in their area.

Voracious Hunters. They are voracious hunters, in constant need of feeding to support their massive bulk. The luvandgaurn are universally feared as they will consume anything from wood to flesh, iron to bone.

Silent Predators. The luvandgaurn glide through the water until their keen eyes spot a possible meal. They attack immediately by rolling to the side and clamping down with their massive jaws. After biting, they will roll with their victim.
