|Holotome Profile: Kyroptero|
|Height||7 feet 9 inches|
Kyroptero is known to usually guard caves, easily blending in with the rock stalactites.
Kyroptero has been used on the side of good.
Oftentimes in caves, water drips from the ceiling for thousands of years, depositing tiny amounts of minerals. Over time, these minerals build up to create downward-pointing spikes called stalactites. The idea behind Kryoptero is that he’s a batlike spirit that can disguise himself to look like a stalactite, so enemy Seekers don’t notice him until it’s too late! In this sketch, he doesn’t look too much like a stalactite, so we asked the artist to make him taller and spikier. That way, when he hangs from the ceiling with his wings folded around him, he blends in.
Much better! Now it looks like someone spotted him, and he’s opened up one wing so he can jump down and start a combat. We asked the artists to make him look aggressive, like he’s about to attack — it wouldn’t do for this spooky Titan to get caught taking a nap!
There’s our guy! Look at those claws! And the glowing eyes! Definitely not the sort of thing you’d want to stumble upon in a dark place!
