Tales of Tolgard
The pyrolisk is foul creature, even more deadly than its cousin, the cockatrice. This magical beast is much more malignant and evil than a cockatrice, and revels in creating mayhem. It appears almost identical to the cockatrice, save for its single red tail feather, and the reddish cast of its wings. It is said that the mortal enemy of the pyrolisk is the phoenix, though it is likely to attack any creature it encounters.
The pyrolisk is a true pyromaniac, setting alight to every creature it meets. It will try to use its gaze attack on opponents, but failing that it will use its weak bite attack to flee. Any creature that meets the gaze of the pyrolisk may instantly burst into flames, dying within a few seconds. Even if they survive, they will still be sheathed in flames. Pyrolisks can also affect any nearby fire source causing it to explode outward with great force.
