Capture Creature #135 Kirugi, Combat Type
Kirugi are defined by their showy appearance. Although visually striking, the creatures are rarely sighted, concealing themselves in the underbrush they call home. Violently territorial and solitary, Kirugi carve borders into the ground around their nesting area using only their tail. Kirugi's sword tail size is dependent on use, growing stronger with each successful battle. If unsuccessful, the sword is often shattered by the opposing Kirugi to disable their competition, but they can also be scavenged by other forest creatures to be used as weapons.
