Esca Lizards are sentient creatures loyal to Lucius, probably originally from the Isle of Sedah, but brought to live in the swamp of Moorue by lord Malco. Esca Lizards play a big part in the great book Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue, where Sir Dalton is "stung" by one and nearly dies. Carliss must go to Moorue to find the life spice flower in the heart of the foreboding swamp that will heal him. But she discovers that there is a shadow warrior, Lord Malco, who is taking over the land. Carliss faces the decision to either save Moorue and let Dalton die, or save him and let Moorue fall.
Description & BehaviourEdit
Esca Lizards are generally 3 feet in length, with 6 legs and 2 antennae-like structures on it's head. On the ends of each antenna are barbs the lizard uses to inject its victim with a deadly neurotoxin that induces a dreamlike state. This same venom is used to make esca crystals. Since they are evil to the core, Esca lizards fear the light. they stay in the shadows. It's almost impossible to see them, as their camouflage surpasses any other creature in Arrethtrae. Although their normal colour is blue and orange, they can change their colour, shape and texture to blend in with their surroundings. This makes them hard to kill, and therefore they are skilled assassins for their master.
