Fatalis is a part of the Elder Dragon class. Fatalis are considered to be unusual or unnatural, even by Elder Dragon standards. Some Fatalis become the more powerful and more aggressive Crimson Fatalis, greatly mutate due to unknown reasons, or even eventually become a White Fatalis.
It is unknown where its true habitat is though in legend its said to be living in the Schrade Kingdom.
Due to Fatalis not being seen encountering or interacting with most other monsters in other areas, its unknown how it fits into the ecological niche. This plus its unnatural unearthly adaptations make it hard to put it in a niche. It is known however that Lao-Shan Lung will flee when it senses a Fatalis is drawing near, suggesting a possible predator-prey relationship, though it is only a theory by the Guild.
The Fatalis is a powerful, unnatural beast. The Fatalis' scales are extremely thick while its shell is very durable. This is due to Fatalis melting the armor of its fallen prey on its shell to increase the strength of its already powerful shell, increasing its protection against some attacks. Fatalis doesn't seem to have very good eyesight, though this maybe partially be do to what its eyes are made of. Creepily, a Fatalis' eyes are made out of crystals. Fatalis' wing membrane is flexible but as hard as metal. From this, Fatalis' wings don't break very easily, allowing it to fly at high speeds and support itself as it flies. Even on the ground, Fatalis is able to walk on all fours and rush prey at shocking speeds with sheer power behind them from its bulk. The 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. Recent encounters have revealed that Fatalis possess control over fire on par with Teostra and Lunastra. Its fire breath extends well beyond the length and height of the already large dragon and it can also release reactive powder too. This powder is more expansive than the Teostra's and can be ignited. The exact workings of Fatalis's explosive attacks is still unknown. The Fatalis also posses the extremely rare and deadly Dragon Element.
In some legends about the Fatalis, there is a legend known by some as the Black Flame. This legend claims that the Second Coming of Fatalis is infinite. The Fatalis in this legend is quite different from the Fatalis seen in the other legends. This Fatalis is described to have six horns, a glowing blue chest, a short mane in between its spikes, bizarre fluids flowing through out its body, and the control of a element known as Black Flame. Black Flame is said to combine the elements Fire and Dragon together into a deadly combination. Despite both being combined together, Dragon seems to overtake this Fatalis' body, allowing it to do things not seen in other legends. This Fatalis is said to be able to send monsters running with a single flap of its wings. A creepy light coming from its eyes invites those it stares at to its dark depths. The fluids are said to have no exact weight, and to be possibly caused by the Dragon Element. The very Dragon Element is said to be controlled by its horns. Its shell is impervious to strikes from weapons and has terrifying power inside of it, which could be unleashed at anytime. 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. This means that this Fatalis maybe able to regenerate after taking large amounts of damage, just like Dire Miralis can regenerate from its still beating heart. Thankfully, this legend hasn't been proven as of yet so the Guild has nothing to worry about.
One thing that all the legends share about 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 too long. Some who have worn the Fatalis' armor report having terrible nightmares, unsettling strength, and a feeling as if they were being possessed by something. They also report feeling a familiar pulse coming from the armor, a feeling as if this pulse has taken their legs. With some hunters wearing the armor of the Black Flame, they report feeling as if their body was taken over while they were unconscious. It is said that this equipment might be alive, meaning that Fatalis might not truly be dead. In Pokke Village, a giant, black blade embedded in the ice is known to regenerate days after being mined once, which supports this claim that Fatalis is still alive. Other Fatalis weapons also seem to suggest that 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 Fatalis and its best not to use this equipment in any form at all.
Fatalis is extremely hostile to all living things. It threatens the very existence of not only the Castle Schrade but the very world around it. In legend, a Fatalis could scorch the whole world with its flames in a few days, burning all lands to a crisp. Due to this, the Guild will secretly send hunters to hunt it down to prevent public panic.
