Atroxio the Iron Horror An original creature by AriesOmega (AriesOmega@gmail.com)
Atroxio the Iron Horror is a unique creature. He is a Half-Green Dragon Rust Monster. Like other dragons he covets treasure and hoards what he can except iron, which he feeds on. He eats humanoids not for sustenance but for the sheer pleasure of them squirming and screaming. He is somewhat more intelligent then an animal and does not speak but understands Common.
Atroxio generally sits in the back of his cavern and will attack intruders that enter using his rust ability while using his claws and bite to disarm them as well. He uses his breath weapon if he is losing since he doesn't want to destroy gold and other non-iron valuables.
