A Tarasque is a dragon of the swamps. It does not resemble the common image of what a dragon usually is. It spends it’s time on the ground, hiding in large bodies of muddy water. Camouflage is the technique the creature uses in order to hide it’s massive body from armies that could take it down. It prefers to snap out of the water, grabbing it’s pretty then drags it into the water to both drown and eat. The large club at the end of it’s tail is it’s defense from being attacked from behind and it’s horns can pierce the best armor. Legend tells of the Tarasque slicing a knight in half with the power of it’s jaws. 

In Orbis, only one Tarasque remains in the bogs of the North. All others have been killed and kingdoms displays the horns and shells as relics of battle. That last Tarasque has not been seen in hundreds of years. Lots of people believe that none are left, but few believe that the harsh stench of the bogs is the Tarasque breath and don’t venture into the swamps.
