Allow me to present: The Elysian Horror! (Art by yours truly~)

Warning: Incoming Headcanon

In a time long-past, the Elysians wrought great wonders of magic and science. One such wonder was a device to harness and direct the magic of the world for the good of society. With the coming of C'bthulhu, many of these devices broke loose of their sturdy confines, imbued with vile and dark life. Over time, many of these so-called Horrors disappeared from memory, with few still able to account the chaos and destruction they left in their wake. They were not, however, simply gone.

Deep underground, in ancient, buried ruins, they wander, searching for sources of magic to consume, be it relics of a by-gone age, or an unwary mage, foolish enough to brave these dark depths.

The Elysian Horror is a large, serpent or worm-like magical construct. Originally created to harness ambient magical energy and convert it to crystalised form. When moving it is fast, but not particularly agile, unable to change direction quickly when moving at full speed. When stationary, it rears its upper body, enabling a wide field of view, which allows it to spot potential sources of food. When threatened, it transitions into a coiled striking posture, akin to earthly cobras.


Lunge - The Elysian Horror spreads its "maw" wide and lunges at the target in an attempt to swallow it whole, or at the very least, crush it outright. Unable to alter direction once the attack has commenced.

The Horror lunges towards its prey.

Constrict - The titan surrounds its foe(s) and begins draining its/their energy (in an AoE centered inside the coil). This replenishes the Horror's health if the player(s) cannot escape quickly enough. Can be avoided by simply jumping out of the snare with the right timing.

Our hapless (but adorable) hero is ensnared by a rare Molten Horror! Ohnoes D:

Ultimate: Shadow Beam - The Elysian Horror retreats a short distance and coils itself up, head raised. While in this stance, it benefits from huge damage reduction, but cannot move or reorient itself. Once in place, it begins charging (the articulated fins around its neck-ring fan out and sparkle while the ring itself spins more rapidly). Once charged, the titan will emit a high-power beam in one of two directions:

Outwards: The beam starts closest to the titan, and strafes the ground outward a set distance in a straight line. A chain of small explosions follow shortly in the beam's wake. Beam has high damage and sets players on fire, explosions deal low damage and moderate knockback. Dodged by moving to one side.

Sweep: The titan lowers its "head" and sweeps its beam from side to side. High damage and sets players on fire. Can be dodged by jumping the beam, or moving behind the titan.

Thanks muchly for all the kind words so far folks, but it would seem I need to step-up my game if I'm to avoid being buried under all the neat ideas~ o uo

As such, there's more arts on the way! And better yet, as of around 15:40 GMT (that's pretty much right this very minute :3) I will be streaming said arts. So if you're seeing this, come say hi! My stream can be found here:

Those are some nice drawings over there!

I like the fact that the color of your titan can be changed depending on which biome it is in without detracting from its original style.

I was originally gonna keep it the same colour, but the stream and I got playing with colour ideas and the Molten Horror just kinda happened~ > u< Have another variant half-done too, but at this point I'm past the deadline, I'll probably finish and post it in a short while = u=
