Enemy controlled quote: Yesss...Fall before the wrath of the Oculeum
Appearance: A blue and tan colored serpent, with a spiked, trident like tail, and six spidery, clawed feet that reach out from its belly. The Oculeum has a plated exoskeleton, with a small, spiked frill jutting down its spine. It has a horned head, and a large, strained, red eye in the very center of its face.
Backstory: The Oculeum was originally a small, scaled, legless water based sub-species of the leviathan that lived in the depths of the ocean, hunting small fish. Possessing little intelligence or strength, they were hunted to near extinction by their natural enemy, the great white shark. Forced to hide in small caves for self preservation, a small colony found refuge in an abandoned church, built by ancient sea demons in hopes of creating a portal to the nether dimensions. Although the sea demons themselves had left centuries before, their taint remained, corrupting and mutating the Oculeum, filling them with the abyssal energies of the underworld. This rapidly changed the Oculeum, both physically and mentally. They grew to the size of horses, and their scales melded together, forming a thick, tough exoskeleton, capable of deflecting swords and absorbing magic. They grew thin, spidery legs on their bellies, allowing them to quickly scuttle across the ground, and swim with increased speed. Most notable is its great, red eye, located in the very center of its head. The eye of the oculeum is a terrible weapon, capable of transfixing enemies, leaving them open to a swift, fearsome attack, carried out by the Oculeum's spiked tail. Now one of the strongest predators of the ocean, the small colony of Oculeum began to multiply, gaining intelligence over the course of a few centuries. Now smarter than most men, these new, bloodthirsty Oculeum have began to spread to the land, attacking and slaughtering villages, and then proceeding to drain the blood from the bodies of their victims, before consuming the flesh from their corpses. Left unchecked, the Oculuem, though few in number, could one day become a great threat to the peoples of the world.
