Odogaron resembles a gruesome feral dog. It is covered in red scales and bony protrusions that resemble muscle tissue and bone. Its tail is particularly bony and can be used as a club. The monster has piercing blue eyes. Odogaron's most distinctive feature is its double row of claws, which it uses to inflict deep wounds in its prey. When enraged, red veins will glow on its back.

Odogaron makes its home in the lower depths of the Rotten Vale, where it can be seen dragging back the carcasses of its prey. However, it will venture up to the Coral Highlands above the Vale in search of prey, where it assumes an apex role in the food chain alongside Legiana.
Odogaron is a hostile monster that will attack anything that it encounters on sight, regardless of size or power. It mostly preys on smaller monsters, but is often seen dragging Legiana corpses back to its den deep in the Vale, and will not hesitate to attack any large monsters it sees- even Vaal Hazak, despite it being an Elder Dragon and therefore an extremely dangerous foe.
