Soft spikes have forced their way through this shell.
Vampiric in nature, these creatures are fearsome to look at; covered with spikes and boasting large fangs, they are swift and dangerous. Many farmers complain of discovering their sheep drained of blood, the work of wild chupacabras. Magis often take on such cases, finding the culprits and relocating them to Silva Forest. Often an egg or two can be obtained in such cases. When tamed and raised in human company, they appear to be more of a dog-like creature, the spikes growing out of their backs typically lying tight against their fur and harmless, unless they are threatened. When being attacked, their spikes raise up and stiffen, an effective defense against those who would do them harm. With sharp teeth and strong jaws, chupacabras can be extremely vicious, and need to be trained effectively.
