Description
The basilisk is a fat reptilian creature about 5 feet long and 2 feet in height. These are slow, heavily armoured lizards with limited intelligence. They have strong jaws with two-inch fangs. They are man-eaters, but infinitely prefer fish when they can get it. Basilisks are usually brownish in colour with lighter underbellies.
Comments
Basilisks are solitary creatures, but they are willing to serve others in exchange for lavish supplies of food (12 pounds or more per day).
Abilities
A basilisk has no skills or magical abilities except that it can turn a target to stone with a glance. If a basilisk's gaze is reflected back at itself, it is killed.
