Formal Name: Gamosh-Ra

Common Name: Lightning Demon

Appearance: Great, hulking mounds of muscle and flesh that are nearly three peds high. Their skin is charred completely black, scored with gashes which are always bleeding. The blood of the Gamosh-Ra is red, but thick, and has the touch of acid. Their mouths are full of yellow fangs, which they use to feed. Their fists are like great war hammers, and their roar like thunder. With eyes a bright white/yellow light lightning they are a very fearful sight.

Territory: They inhabit storms of great magnitude, which they command. They can stay only within the storm's boundaries and stay only as long as it does. The territory of a Lightning Demon is always easily recognizable, as you'll see the lightning and hear the thunder. Though not all lightning storms contain them, only the greatest ones. They stay inside the storm cloud until they sense enough body heat to draw them down to feed.

Diet: These fearful demons feed only on one thing: Heat. Cursed to be enternally cold they burn their bodies, charring the flesh, and stay within the heat of lightning. They then journey forth into villages and suck the heat from any they can find. The victims either go completely mad or die of hypothermia shortly after the encounter.

Habit/Behavior: They have no realy behaviors and only look for their food, trying always to keep themselves warm. Though they also like to toy with any who oppose them, letting them believe they are winning until they get fried by a bolt of lightning. Gamosh-Ra are attracted by heat, of any kind, as long as it's large enough. They always extinguish any nearby fires, seemingly eating them, sucking in the heat.

Mating: Though they all seem to be giant males they have no reproductive organs. Most believe that any lightning storm large enough will spawn a Gamosh-Ra, or at least attract it from whatever dark, burning hole that it is banished to in the netherworld. This is still debated, though very few care, and most simply go along with the belief that they come from the lightning storms.

Special Abilities: Gamosh-Ra command the lightning storms which they inhabit. They can guide them in any direction they wish, though the most the storms can stay, at least that has been observed, is twelve hours. They can call down bolts of lightning, or great booming claps of thunder which have been known to make one's ears bleed and go totally def.

Origin: The tortured souls of those who died slowly by freezing to death. Trapped on mountain peaks or in iceplanes without food or heat their souls were sucked from their body as was their heat and thrown deep into the netherworld. They looked for fire, their bodies becoming charred. Then they began seaking heat outside the netherworld. Rising up to take residence within the heat of great lightning storms. So the Lightning Demon was born.

Comments/questions/additions? My second demon, ooooohhhh, shiny, hope it doesn't turn into a habit. So what does everyone think?

It's a good addition to our demon section, Tarquet!

To Winlok: It is mentioned in the mating part: "Most believe that any lightning storm large enough will spawn a Gamosh-Ra, or at least attract it from whatever dark, burning hole that it is banished to in the netherworld." Probably this should also be mentioned in the territory paragraph. Hmmm... but probably there should be some more things added why these demons come to life - cause otherwise a storm would be enough to create them (theoretically)... There should be another influence as well, I guess...

I didn't put it in the territory paragraph? Bah, it got accidentally deleted once then I just went through it quick again, didn't pay much attention. Yea, the origin is kind of weak, although they are somewhat created by storms. But not just any storms, these are GIANT storms, the kind that are remember throughout history for many years. A lot like a tropical storm, but without the really high winds. As they guide the storms wind isn't needed, so there isn't usually much during the storms. Lots of lightning, thunder, and oddly warm rain.

I think a better origin would be that they are people who froze to death, and whenever a storm big enough to support one, that isn't already taken, pops up then they might try to inhabit it. I'll think about it and update it probably by later today.
