A young cockatrice must be very carefully trained to rein in its natural powers. Simple carelessness while drinking from a stream can render the water noxious for centuries without corrective magic, and its natural habit of hissing has the unfortunate byproduct of knocking out all serpents and dragons within earshot. Fortunately, the sound of a dismot's call will cause it to faint, and lose its powers for a day, and thus some slight check on its abilities may be found when a young one refuses to listen to its magi companion.

Cockatrice are known to dwell underground, and upon finding any suspicious hole, one is advised to procure a weasel at once and send it within where the cockatrice is suspected of dwelling, for only the stench of a weasel can fell these deadly beings. They are impervious to fire, and the air and ground around them shimmers with mortal heat, such that many perish before even seeing their dread foe. It is said they were first created when an evil spirit crept into a crocodile's stomach and burst forth under the full moon, slaying its erstwhile host in the moment of its birth. In these enlightened times, it is known that they are the product of a vernox dragon's love of a dismot, and anyone magically inclined can recite a simple chant to protect themselves from the adverse effects of cockatrice powers.
