JABBERSNATCH - The Shadow Basilisk


   Engineered in ancient times as royal assassins, these clever reptiles are coated in a thin membrane that absolutely absorbs the full spectrum of light, giving the monsters a solid silhouette-like appearance to onlookers. Highly contortional, they can fit into surprisingly small spaces and often curl into a more compact shape while stalking a victim. They are able to "deflect" any sound they produce - even from objects striking them - in any direction they desire, further masking their location from prey. They can kill humans or other weaker beings with only a single precise stab from their needly talons or knife-like tails.

   Jabbersnatch are named in many lullabies and nursery rhymes from their home country, having been used to threaten misbehaving children for centuries.
