Dark Sun - Destiny and sacrifice
A Lirr is a large, warm-blooded reptile that resembles a large lion. It possesses bright, multi-colored plumage that it uses for silent communication.
The Lirr has a long, sleek, dark gray body. Its scales are small and fine, almost like those of a snake’s. around its neck and at the end of its tail sit rings of a weblike membrane. Colored brilliant red, yellow, and orange, these rings normally lie flat against the creature’s scales. When prey is sighted, however, the membrane flares up to alert other Lirr that prey is nearby. The lirr’s four muscular legs grant a powerful spring, giving it the ability to outrun most prey.
Lirrs are feared by wastelanders and traders as fearsome hunters.
