The cockatrice is nasty and extremely deadly beast, that creates devastation wherever it goes. Sometimes confused with the basilisk, the cockatrice appears to be an emaciated rooster with the long scaly tail of a snake. Wherever a cockatrice goes, everything dies–all animals, plants, even insects.

Hell Hounds are rare creatures not of this plane–they were brought from Hell by other, more powerful beings to serve as guards and pets.
