The Children of Merovech called it the Tarrasque; the rest of the world called it the eater of cities and the ender of worlds. This gigantic scourge of God has been called half dragon, half animal, and half fish. It has the head of a lion with teeth as long and sharp as swords, the mane of a horse, a back covered in a tortoise-like shell with sharp bristly scales keen as daggers, six feet with bear-like claws, and the tail of a serpent with a scorpion’s sting. Worst still is that it can breathe poisonous fumes and sulfurous flames, and can emit a piercing hiss that deafens all who hear it.

Luckily for most of us, the World Enders slumber for most of their lives, sleeping below the surface of the marshes, estuaries and coastlines. They can sleep for so long that the river and ocean floor flows over them, hiding them entirely. Only when they are disturbed, or their hunger overcomes them do they emerge from the water to feed on all that is in their path. Not merely animals, but humans, plants, and buildings as well. A World Ender can consume a whole town before returning back to its watery lair.
