Return of the Hydra: prologue
Hydras are dangerous but stupid predators, living on the shores of Ademorra. The natives fear them greatly, beacuse they seem to incorporate all aspects of their dark God The Devourer: Hunger, Hate, Stupidity, Brutal Strength and extreme fertility. Ademorran Hydras indeed grow and reproduce with astounding speed, needing only a little time and a lot of food to become a fearsome fully-grown 12-headed opponent.
The Hydra is also the name of the admiral ship of the fleet sent by Shairran Merchants.
