Young seroile chirp repeatedly, much like birds, before they hatch from their eggs. As they grow, their repertoire of noises starts to include grunts, clicks, growls, barks, and other varied calls that can be strung together to convey ideas to other seroile. They continue to communicate verbally throughout their lives, and develop unique “songs” that they can use to identify one another. Unfortunately, these noisy creatures are not the most welcoming companions, as they spend much of their time darting around the water and tend to snap at anything that upsets or confuses them. Magi charged with caring for a seroile can train them to a degree, and may use them as aquatic guides and adventuring companions. They are quite crafty creatures, and should they choose, may show a magi how to navigate a crowded waterway.

Though smaller than the leviathans and other sea monsters that occupy large waterways, seroile are not to be underestimated. Bulls can reach weights of over a thousand pounds, and both sexes have powerful jaws that will make short work of an unwary explorer’s canoe paddle. They are most often found in tropical regions, silt seroile to the east in Raza, and mottled seroile to the west, in Tetzcotal. There they may live in a variety of aquatic habitats, ranging far upstream, or venturing to the mangrove swamps that surround some coastal channels. Most often, however, seroile are found in murky rivers where they will wait for prey to pass near, then burst out from behind some debris or vegetation to make chase. They can swim surprisingly fast and are quite agile thanks to their long front flippers. The seroile’s head is packed with sensitive nerves that can detect tremors in the water, and they will pursue almost anything that comes their way. The only creatures the seroile will not eat are hydras, serpents, and dragons.
