Diamaskratos

From DivNull RPG

A wingless dragon seemingly fashioned from stained glass, Diamaskratos’ beauty inspires all who see him, even as he devours them. His four legs support a lithe, but nearly indestructible glass body nearly 30 yards long from nose to tail, with a head full of sharp teeth and four tails with razor sharp tips that hit like starmetal reaver daiklaives.

Originally a 5-dot behemoth tamed by Erratic Threnody, Diamaskratos has grown into something else since his master was defeated, broken and forced to bond with him. In theory, Threndoy maintains Diamaskratos for Misplaced Promise but, while Threnody does commit the essence needed to keep the dragon bound to Promise, Diamaskratos does more to maintain Threnody than the other way around. Over the centuries of their pairing, Diamaskratos has learned to access the uncommitted portion of his keeper’s essence pool, which he now claims as his own. The dragon generally uses this pool to power some of the mutations Threnody is sharing with him.

Diamaskratos’ task is to guard the the Glass Lamentation, tirelessly preventing the uninvited from gaining passing further into Kinaniz. For his part, Threnody still possesses the ability to shape, and can still wield formidable shaping combat charms, but he generally lacks the will to use them. Intruders occasionally disrupt his solitude enough to warrant a shaping attack, particularly if the statues in the the Glass Lamentation are desecrated.
