Of Steam and Magic
Gila Lords are top ranks of the Waste Devil society, not due to their intelligence but their brute strength. Marked by black scales with orange bands about their bodies, Gila Lords are sluggish but dangerous creatures, preferring to hang back as long as it can keep its prey and predators at bay but not afraid to bite when cornered.
Gila Lords often travel with a Frill-Neck or two with them to blind an enemy for an easy victory but to be sure the Gila Lord is the more dangerous of the two. Gila Lords are capable of spewing balls of flame that explode on impact and if that were not enough they are extremely venomous creatures. Occasionally, the creatures will spit their poison in a short spray but the real danger comes from their bite. Gila Lords are incredibly tenacious, grabbing onto their victims and holding on even in the face of death. If one manages to grab on for too long, nothing short of breaking the jaw will remove its grip—even if the head is severed from the body.
Like other waste devils, Gila Lords speak a broken form of Draconic and while not unintelligible it fails to express more complex concepts.
