Menqilin is a rarely sighted legendary creature, considered by folklorists to be the “companion to the gods”. Its solitary horn is a powerful electric conductor, channeling lightning from the clouds, which it can release in powerful bursts. Menqilin often come to the aid of creatures in need but never seek out conflict. The creature’s molted scales are prized possessions amongst those who indulge in folklore. Menqilin have never been sighted when not running.
