                Really boring and even with temporal if you clutch claw to his face he can still paralyze you. Not to mention effluvium. He is basically a giant cobra with legs that can call to his gang. I really want to know if there is a turf war between him and acidic glavenus so he can slice him. After acidic glavenus intro it's possible they have a turf war right?

                  Most forgettable monster, even as a fanged wyvern this is even more forgettable than the chew toy of the ancient forest and the cutie of the elder's recess and it doesn't do anything unique other than summon underlings.

                      I swear alone this guy's a pushover, but then he gets the entire red army to show up and it becomes hell just trying to live considering how much he loves chilling in the toxic gas
