The Swordmaster Shogun Ceanataur is a Carapaceon. It is a Shogun Ceanataur stained with blood.

Habitat Range

The Swordmaster Shogun Ceanataur has only been seen in Dark Veil Forest.

Ecological Niche

Shogun Ceanataur are somewhat high in the food chain. Very little is powerful enough to prey on them, although weak or old individuals may sometimes find themselves at risk from more powerful predators such as Lavasioth, Teostra, Lunastra, Rajang, Akura Jebia, Abiorugu, Meraginasu or even the rare Crimson Fatalis. Despite this, they can more than hold their own against most creatures. Shoguns themselves are filter feeders, sifting through soil for small organisms, although they are opportunists and will accept carrion or weak live prey, such as a Wyvern carcass or smaller, weakened Bird Wyverns. They are known to have battles with Khezu in the caves of the swamp.

Biological Adaptions

The Swordmaster Shogun Ceanataur has the same biological adaptions as the Shogun Ceanataur though it is strangely covered in blood for unknown reasons.


Swordmaster Shogun Ceanataur are quite aggressive towards enemies, even more than usual.
