Being the Fledgling of the Cluckatrice, named Chickatrice until fully grown, possessing a steel-like beak and voracious Appetite from the Day it hatches. Currently considered a dire Threat to the Balance of Nature in Giza Plains, and therefore recognized as a Mark along with the adult Cluckatrice.


Battle Edit

Etymology Edit

The name is a portmanteau of "chick" and "cockatrice." The Cockatrice is a creature from mythology. It is similar to the basilisk in appearance and ability, but also possesses flight. A cockatrice is born from an egg hatched by a rooster and incubated by a toad, and its gaze causes instant petrification.
