The rough texture of this heavy egg makes it almost painful to hold.
A temperamental sea creature has hatched, and so far has eaten anything it could find, though it is happiest with fresh morsels of meat. It doesn't seem to like being picked up, and always snaps at strangers.
The creature has grown much bigger, as well as its appetite. Though it's not quite as touchy now, it still treats strangers with hostility. Its scales have additionally gained a rough, sandy texture.
Great Red Drasces are large sea-dwelling leviathans with appetites to match their immense size. They are solitary, preferring to stay a good distance away from each other and establishing loose territories to keep other creatures at bay. They are not afraid to attack anything larger than them, including other Drasces and sea-going vessels. At first they had a bad reputation from capsizing boats, often coming across fishermen in their feeding grounds and heavily damaging their boats as they viciously ate the fish caught by the fishermen. It was only until recently that creature tamers saw an advantage with these beasts; the ironic task of escorting boats in dangerous waters. Despite being difficult to raise, the temptation was too good to resist, and the tamed Great Red Drasces proved to be not only convenient, but invaluable. The large predator would scare away most other creatures that preyed on vulnerable ships as they navigated more precarious seas. Since then, sailors have been seen catching and raising Drasces eggs specifically to protect their vessels when fishing or hunting for other treasures. Even though Great Red Drasces don't seem to have magical capabilities, their ravenous hunger and quick temperaments-as long as they're safely directed away from their charge-has proven to be just as favorable.
