Battle Edit

The Aspidochelon will not actually seek the party out and attack; rather, it moves back and forth up the waterfall path, relying on groups of other enemies to shield it. When confronted, the Aspidochelon will put up a tough defense, but its attacking capabilities are next to nothing. Its ability, Shelter, raises its own Defense.

Etymology Edit

According to the tradition of the Physiologus and medieval bestiaries, the aspidochelone is a fabled sea creature, variously described as a large whale or vast sea turtle, and a giant sea monster with huge spines on the ridge of its back.
