Oltura is a massive Elder Dragon with moth-like features on her wings. Most of her body is covered in white scales while her underbelly and legs are covered in black scales. She has a long tail that ends in two prongs. On top of her head are two pairs of horns that glow light pink toward the end. The larger horns branch out into two prongs while the smaller ones look more like spikes. There are rows of spikes on her shoulders. Oltura has six massive wings with moth-like shape and pattern. Initially, only two wings are active while the other four are folded up and only open when Oltura powers up. There are also four tendrils at the base of the tail. The eye spots on the wings change color depending on how much power and element Oltura channels. When near death and entering her true form, purple patterns also appear on her wings.
Her worm form consisted of giant, worm-like, gray tendrils with when mouth parts open up like a flower. The texture of the worm is strikingly similar to that of Rathalos's skin. There has been sighting of up to three worms at the same time in the same location. What body these tendrils are connected to is never seen.
Behavior and Abilities
An Oltura begins her life as a larval-like worm that can travel anywhere through the world. The Oltura does this by creating giant sinkholes, which destroy anything above them in the process, including villages. Oltura feeds on Rathalos in order to become strong and reach adulthood. She uses the rage-ray as a hypnotic light effect to lure the Rathalos in. Once a Rathalos arrives near the pits, Oltura will emerge to either eat the Rathalos whole or drain their energy. While a significant number of any kind of Rathalos will seemingly do, a Razewing Rathalos is particularly effective in accelerating Oltura's growth. She also appears to be willing to devour anything during her larval state, as anything that falls into a pit is never seen again.
Oltura's rage-rays also have an effect on other nearby monsters, changing them into Rage-Rayed Monsters. Though unlike with Rathalos, other monsters are simply driven into a frenzy. These rays along with Oltura's voice can also affect humans and Wyverians, which led to a cult forming devoted to worshiping her. However the cult was very misguided, as Oltura's only desire was to live.
Oltura is a creature whose very existence upsets the balance of the world and causes great disaster and calamity throughout her life-cycle. While an adult Oltura is smaller than her larval state, it is significantly more powerful. She can use different elemental attacks and can create an aura to protect herself from attacks capable of vaporizing arrows in miliseconds which can be broken should the eyes on her wings be targeted, and her presence alone is capable of causing large scale changes in the weather similar to Alatreon. This, paired with her all-consuming desire to live, her intensely aggressive approach to defending itself, destructive effect on the world around her, and disregard for all other living things, make her a threat to the entire world and makes co-existence nearly impossible.
