Basic Info[edit | edit source]

Dossier[edit | edit source]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what the survivor Helena, the author of the dossiers has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

NoteHelena.png
Wild
Liopleurodon Magicus is a mid-sized ocean predator. Typically between 20 and 25 feet long, it mostly hides within the reefs, waiting to ambush prey that swims by. Due to its low acceleration and medium speed, Liopleurodon tends not to chase prey that escape its initial devastating chomp attack.
Domesticated
Neither the fastest swimmer, nor the most powerful ocean predator, Liopleurodon still has its uses for those wanting to stay underwater for extended periods of time. Many tribes use Liopleurodon for long duration oil-and-oyster harvesting trips. Often, those who don't believe in the Liopleurodons' qualities are shunned.
Known Information
The species on the island almost seem to be magical. The reptile's skin secretes an oil that, when absorbed through the skin contact makes the rider process oxygen more efficiently for extreme diving. When trawling the ocean for resources, Liopleurodon will show you the way.
~ Helena

Behavior[edit | edit source]

As it says in the dossier "it mostly hides within the reefs, waiting to ambush prey that swims by."

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Liopleurodon appears as a crocodile-like reptile, with two sets of fins and a short tail. It is a pliosaur, a short-necked, large-headed type of Plesiosaur, making it closely related to the deep water Plesiosaurs. It also possesses a single long barbel on its chin to detect the presence of prey swimming past its ambush lair.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Liopleurodon, see the relevant Wikipedia article

  • The Dossier was revealed on 17. July 2015 [1]\
  • The name and elements of the Dossier, such as 'The species on the island almost seem to be magical', 'Liopleurodon will show you the way' and 'those who don't believe in the Liopleurodons' qualities are shunned' are most likely references to the popular viral video 'Charlie the Unicorn', which features a magical Liopleurodon that guides the way.[2]
  • Liopleurodon means "smooth sided tooth"
