Once a normal Fatalis, Crimson Fatalis is a greatly enraged Fatalis whose scales have changed color due to its constant rage. Just like Fatalis, it is extremely old, so old in fact, that its exact ancestral roots are unknown. As with the rest of its species, public info on this monster claims it does not exist. Only old legends are usually passed around and hunting of this creature is shrouded in secrecy. Some regions have their own legends and their own incarnations of the Crimson Fatalis with some being quite different from others.
Crimson Fatalis are said to primarily live in volcanic areas in legends such as the Battleground and the Ingle Isle in Val Habar's Region. In some old documents and reports, Crimson Fatalis has been said to appear in the Castle Schrade at some point and to even have attacked the area like Fatalis. In the legends of some areas, some incarnations of Crimson Fatalis are said to live in the deep craters of active volcanoes.
Due to Crimson Fatalis not being seen encountering or interacting with most other monsters in volcanic areas, it's unknown how it fits into the ecological niche. This and its unnatural, unearthly adaptations make it hard to put it in a niche. It is known however that Crimson Fatalis is a predator.
Just like Fatalis, Crimson Fatalis has extremely thick scales while its shell is very heavy and hard. This is due to Crimson Fatalis melting the armor of fallen prey on its shell to increase the strength of its already powerful shell, increasing its strength dramatically. Unlike Fatalis though, its scales and shell glow crimson faintly in darkness. Its believed the scales glow crimson because of the Crimson Fatalis's anger. Since it was once a normal Fatalis, Crimson Fatalis's colors might change due to its immense rage though this hasn't been confirmed as of yet. Crimson Fatalis's wings are as hard as metal yet also flexible. This means that its wings can't be broken easily and allow it to fly at high speeds through the sky. Crimson Fatalis possess explosive powder similar to the reactive scales produced by Lunastra and Teostra. One of its most powerful feature is its powerful fiery breath. This fire is some of the strongest fire breath of all monsters and can kill most enemies almost instantly. Its fire breath extends well beyond the length and height of the already large dragon and it can apparently release reactive powder similar to but more expansive than the flame dragons' and ignite it. The exact workings of Fatalis's explosive attacks is still unknown. The most bizarre and supernatural part about Crimson Fatalis is its ability to summon meteors. These meteors come from outer space and its unknown how Crimson Fatalis is able to summon these meteors. These meteors seem to be summoned by Crimson Fatalis by it performing certain gestures though its completely unknown how its able to do summon meteors by just doing these gestures.
Many years ago, a Fatalis retreated from Castle Schrade after being defeated in battle against hunters. It was unknown what happened to this Fatalis after its defeat but some years later this Fatalis was found living in the Ingle Isle. In those few years, this Fatalis had changed into a Crimson Fatalis though this Crimson Fatalis was quite different from known legends. Its scales were blood red in color, its underbelly was golden in color, the spikes on its back was golden in color, and it had golden eyes. This Crimson Fatalis also had abilities that weren't seen before in any legends. It could make its own heat waves using its scales and its wings, just like Lunastra and Teostra. It was able to manipulate lava into bursting from the ground in unusual patterns and was still able to summon meteors. Its unknown what caused this Fatalis to change into such an unusual Crimson Fatalis but the Guild is trying figure this out now.
In some legends in the Old World, a particular incarnation of Crimson Fatalis is said to live in deep craters inside active volcanoes. This incarnation of Crimson Fatalis is known to some as the Most Evil Elder Dragon. This Crimson Fatalis is very different from the other incarnations of Crimson Fatalis. This Crimson Fatalis has larger wings, spikes on its shoulders, a horn on top of its head, lava-like markings on its feet, a glowing chest, and the control of an element known as the Crimson Demon element. This element combines the elements Fire and Dragon into a deadly combination, though the Fire Element is the dominant of the two, allowing this Crimson Fatalis to do things not seen in other legends. This Crimson Fatalis is said to be able to send monsters running with a single flap of its wings. Its eyes are unfazed by lava and said to be scorching hot along with its burning hot scales. The scariest part about this legend is that not only is its strength far beyond the ones from the other legends but its body shows signs of possible regenerative powers and that its shell is impervious to strikes from weapons and has terrifying power inside of it. This plus the fact that this incarnation is able to manipulate lava and use the lava as its own weapon. Thankfully, this legend hasn't been proven as of yet so the Guild have nothing to worry about.
One thing that all the legends share about Crimson Fatalis is its equipment. This equipment is much more than what it appears to be. When hunters wear this monster's armor, they are known to disappear mysteriously without a trace or even die mysteriously if the armor is worn for to long. Some who have worn the Crimson Fatalis' armor report feeling discomforting power, a lust for darkness, a feeling of dread, and a feeling as if they were being possessed by something. Some also report hallucinations and report their wordly thoughts vanishing. It is said that this equipment might be alive and that Crimson Fatalis might not truly be dead. The Crimson Fatalis' weapons also seem to suggest that Crimson Fatalis is still alive in some form. Some weapons despair eat at the user's hands while other weapons, when held, have hideous, abyssal screams coming from them. Some weapons even have a thirst for blood. From this it is very risky using the equipment of a Crimson Fatalis and its best not to use this equipment in any form at all.
Extremely aggressive and violent, even by Fatalis standards. Crimson Fatalis' rage is nearly everlasting. It will kill anything in its path without a second thought. Like Fatalis, it also threatens the lives of all living things. In legend, a Crimson Fatalis could scorch the whole world with its flames in a few days while also bring hellfire from the skies, burning all lands to a crisp. Due to this, the Guild will secretly send hunters to hunt it down to prevent public panic.
