Hungry as a Hobranx

dphobranx

This beast has a great red head that contains double rows of foot-long teeth.  It has two arms with pincers like black scythes that can cut a man in two, and treads on great, splay feet that will crush a man unfortunate enough to be caught beneath.  The hobranx is known for its vicious temperament and its constant hunger, which has given rise to common expressions such as “hungry as a hobranx” and “angry as a hobranx”.  Some Galbran shamans are reputed to be able to control these beasts, but often the control is short-lived and the shaman ends up lining the belly of the beast.
