Dunkleoustous

By:

Large and powerful, they are the aquatic equivalent of elephants in a battle situation-very dangerous, but no army can afford not to have large numbers of them.

Full Description
The Dunkleoustous is a 30 foot long armoured fish with bony ridges in it’s huge jaws that serve as teeth, and a two foot long mouth.The first three feet of it’s body are covered in natural armour plating that is almost impossible to penetrate with a weapon. These highly fierce fish are very good at breaking down the morale of an opposing army and are used as the spearhead of a charge. An Eshal sits on a saddle mounted on the head.

Having said this, they are very labour intensive to feed and have to be trained from when they are very small.And there is a danger that they could end up panicking and fleeing through their own lines, in which case they have to be killed with a blade thrust by their driver through an eye to reach the brain.

I have a detail fetish and this leaves me hanging. How are they trained? What do they eat? What is lifespan, etc... I don't need these answers in particular, but just a little more than this if you want a 5. But it's a nice to the point post.

In ancient Rome, social appearance and respectability were everything. The most hated men were punished with damnatio memoriae, damnation of memory. Every trace that a person had ever lived was removed. Busts were shattered, freizes were marred, records were struck. Any sign of the hated figure was destroyed.
