This is a monster that I designed to be very annoying to fight. It is loosely based off of the lizafos from The Legend of Zelda, but has a whole slew of special abilities that makes them a very inconvenient encounter. I have yet to run this monster un-nerfed and figured I might share it with you all here in case you want to use it.

The zenite typically wears a black breastplate armor that their herd has fashioned for their physiology. They have shiny green scales, huge gnashing teeth, yellow snake eyes, breath fire, wield weapons, and heal quickly. Not only thay but they have four arms, two of which they use to wield scimitars while the other two are usually used to grab their opponent if possible. Sometimes they wield four scimitars at once. Zenites stand 7 feet tall and generally weigh around 320 lbs. They always fight in groups and will flee if outnumbered to utilize hit-and-run tactics to slowly wear their prey down. They prefer to be methodical and tactical about killing their prey and will use whatever cunning they can to achieve victory.
