"Its giant spines and tusks make for a fearsome sight in the volcanic areas it frequents."
The Akantor is a massive, vaguely snapping turtle-like wyvern that dwells in magma. Akantors are covered with massive reddish black spikes and durable shells, and have both large sharp claws on their legs but also a similar structure on its tail. The Akantor's most distinctive feature aside from its fearsome spikes are the pair of dreadful tusks on its head. These tusks are both nearly as long as the entirety of the head. The underside of the Akantor is a much tanner color than the rest of its body, and is comparatively lacking in dangerous protrusions.
Akantors are so powerful, they can have extremely negative effects on the environment they reside in. Predator and prey flee from Akantors and only the largest wyverns and Elder Dragons even dare challenge them. With their immense physical strength, numerous body spines, enormous tusks, and powerful roars Akantors are extremely deadly foes. If all that weren't enough produced inside Akantors mouth is a highly corrosive fluid meant to break down the defenses of prey, and with its exceptionally loud roars Akantors can create a sort "sonic beam" tainted with the Dragon Element powerful enough to shoot down airships flying by.
Akantors are highly aggressive and predatory - they are shown to be more than capable of taking down a Gravios. They are easily the apex predator of any ecosystem unfortunate enough to witness its presence, and can obliterate many monsters and hunters that dare challenge it. By virtue of its immense strength and ability to burrow through magma, not much can realistically stop Akantors short of another elder dragon or an experienced team of hunters. They will attack and kill almost anything on sight, often letting out a deafening roar before charging head on.
