ECOLOGY

Environment warm hills and deserts
Organization solitary or pair

Temperamental and avaricious, the behir spends most of its time slithering through the sandy hills and desert cliffs that make up its territory, preying upon all creatures who dare to enter its hunting grounds. The creature’s six pairs of powerful, clawed legs remain folded against its sides most of the time, only extending in combat to grapple foes or carry the behir forward in a terrifying, low-slung gallop, or else when climbing the sheer cliff faces common to behir lairs.

Behirs are typically dull in color, from gray to rusty red or weathered green or blue, and the type of energy damage dealt by their breath weapon varies as well, usually corresponding to that of a chromatic dragon of the same hue. Dragons deny any genetic link between themselves and behirs, disparaging them at every turn, causing many behirs to harbor violent grudges against dragons of all kinds.

The average behir is 40 feet long and weighs 4,000 pounds. In addition to the two prominent horns on its head, many have additional decorative spines at regular intervals along the central ridges of their backs.
