Dimmer of Light

These horrifying creatures hail from jungles in the depths of Tartarus, though prides of them are sometimes encountered in the mortal world. With the head and long neck of a serpent, and the body of an enormous great cat (males) or a claw-footed elephant (females), they make terrifying predators. Occasionally they are used as mounts by the generals and princes of the underworld. When so used they are typically given full plate barding, increasing their AC to 31 and reducing their movement to 30 ft.
