-Karitzuian Underworld: Crhnynn-
The Crhnynn is a terrifying bird-like monster used in large-scale fights to decimate enemy ranks. Like the legendary Roc, the Crhnynn primarily fights with its talons. It has no beak to attack with, but rather a huge faceted "eye" that sits on its long neck. Its wings have heavy cartilage feathers than can be used for defense, giving it its weight, while its body is covered in irregular overlapping cartilage plates. The tail and feet are both lizard-like. The eye is simply a distraction; Crhnynn do not rely on sight, but rather on hearing. When the eye is damaged it spurts a dark poison.
Crhnynn are demons that feed on negative energy caused by conflict, self-deprecation, and physical ailment. This energy is stored in their cartilage feathers; they lengthen the more energy they have, weighing the Crhnynn down, and shorten as it absorbs it, making it lighter and more agile. The weight is entirely due to the "feathers"; the creature seems to actually be gaseous inside, as when the feathers are depleted too far and it grows sickly a black smoke rises up under them. Thus a dying Crhnynn literally dissolves away.
Crhnynn are supposedly born from bone piles in areas with high concentrations of negativity. They thrive in nests placed near prisons and torture chambers.
