Traits and Abilities
The Polar-Serpent is white with faint grey markings and is about the size of a panther. They have excellent sight, hearing, and sense of smell. This frosty dragon has a large harpoon-like horn that it uses to impale its prey.
Like seals, Polar Serpents like basking on icebergs, but unlike seals, Polar Serpents have a carnivorous streak. These pack dragons sit upon these icebergs like statues scanning their environment and, when one spots prey, they all dive in for a bite. They windsurf across the ice on their bellies using their wings and legs to steer and pick up speed, getting quite fast. They eat polar bears, seals, penguins, fish, and even people. Polar Serpents also use their horn for hunting: they saw holes in the ice with it and wait for their surprised prey to fall into their open jaws below. They shoot thunderbolts of flame from their mouths.
