Taxonomy

Keoaruboru is a giant Elder Dragon that was recently discovered by Mezeporta.

History

Keoaruboru wasn't discovered until one suddenly attacked the Interceptor's Base.[1] So far, no legends, as well as documentation, have been found about Keoaruboru, making the monster a mystery to the Guild. When it attacked Mezeporta, the Guild recognized the monster as an Ultra-Class Elder Dragon, a giant with destructive power that surpasses any basic Elder Dragon.[2]

Habitat Range

It is said that Keoaruboru likely lives in mountainous regions, though no evidence supports this, however, it is known for occasionally invading the Interceptor's Base.

Ecological Niche

From little being known about Keoaruboru, it is hard to say what its role is in the ecosystem and what it feeds on. It is thought that Keoaruboru could be a carnivore from the shape of its teeth.

Biological Adaptations

  • Length: Unknown[3]

Keoaruboru is covered in a thick skin, which resembles charcoal, that helps contain heat in its body, causing even its blood to be extremely hot.[4] A lot of this skin covers Keoaruboru's forearms and tail, meaning those areas of its body, in particular, are prone to building up large amounts of heat. When heat builds up in those parts of its body, they will glow and pulse before eventually exploding to release some of the excess buildup. These explosions are strong enough to destroy parts of fortresses if left unchecked, but, thankfully, there is a way for hunters to prevent them.[5] By attacking those parts while they're heated up, hunters are able to prevent Keoaruboru from unleashing those powerful explosions.[6] Keoaruboru will also breathe fiery beams from its mouth in order to control its body temperature. The main source of Keoaruboru's power is its horns, which gather heat that has accumulated in its body.[7] As its body heats up, the horns will slowly change color and accumulate power as Keoaruboru gets hotter, even if damaged.[8] Running down Keoaruboru's shoulders and back is a giant hardbone, which resembles wood, that acts as a support for its body, allowing it to stand upright in some situations.[9] This hardbone also protects Keoaruboru's back.[10]

Natural Phenomenon

Keoaruboru is able to build up immense amounts of heat in its body before releasing all of it as ultra-heated fire, causing massive damage to fortresses and incinerating any unfortunate hunters in a single blast.[11] From this ability, Keoaruboru is able to destroy fortresses with ease if left to roam free.

Behavior

Keoaruboru is an extremely hostile Elder Dragon that is described to be a living volcano from the amount of heat it can produce.[12] Only the most skilled hunters can hope to slay one.
