The semi-aquatic horpo is a territorial, aggressive beast that inhabits rivers and lakes.  While herbivorous, the massive 15' long, 3 ton creature is a terror of the waterways, often attacking transports and riverside settlements.

Horpos secrete a reddish fluid that serves as a natural sunscreen, which also makes them immune to light-based attacks and laser weapons.  This substance is highly valuable not only for its reflective properties, but also for use in dyes and pigments (not to mention its difficulty to procure).

As horpos mature, their hide thickens to such a degree that they lose the ability to feel pain...meaning they never retreat from a fight, and battle until death.

Mutations:  Pain Insensitivity [D], Reflective Epidermis (Lasers/Light), Triple-Headed
