DescriptionEdit

The ferrox entered the world for the first time after the experimentations of the insane sorcerer, Devis. The exact nature and abilities of the ferrox have changed over the long years since his fall, and while they contain only a shade of their former power, the beasts have adapted. Now, the ferrox can sap the power of their enemies and use it to repair their own bodies. Sustained by their victim’s strength, a ferrox is a worthy match for any hero.

An insane wizard created these blighted creatures from razorwings many years ago. Their hunger for blood has spelled the doom of many an adventurer, and wounds inflicted by ferrox tend to cause serious blood loss and heal very slowly. The most powerful ferrox have a white stripe in their hair and are capable of draining the life energy from their opponents and using it to heal themselves.
