Soporific Siren

A miraculous spring
Clear as children's song
Deep runs its stream
Elegant, but strong

A lullaby is sung
Soft sounds of seduction
Its dulcet tones inducing sleep
And serpentine destruction

Ecology

Characteristics

A formidable aquatic serpent that crests on moonlit nights—likely why it has often been mistaken for a mermaid. Despite its appearance, it is extremely aggressive, and tolerates no trespassers on its turf. It expels an intoxicating sleep powder from an organ on its neck, knocking out prey before it can resist. Some Somnacanth sightings tell of this species making use of unusual shells, so exercise caution if you catch one swimming towards you with a shell in its claws.

Useful Info

While in the water, it can move about as it pleases, but it doesn't fare so well on land, so draw it out to shore for an easy hunt. If you're caught in cloud of its sleep powder, it's lights out; use a Wirebug to leap away from it and position for a counterattack.
