Kirugi are defined by their showy appearance. Although visually striking, the creatures are rarely sighted, concealing themselves in the underbrush they call home. Violently territorial and solitary, Kirugi carve borders into the ground around its nesting area using its bladed tail. Kirugi’s sword size is dependent on use, growing stronger with each successful battle. If unsuccessful in battle, the sword is often shattered by the opposing Kirugi, unless scavenged by other creatures of the forest.
