Name That Dragon! Round 7

Here's a tricky one, an ice-dwelling, caterpillar dragon. Name That Dragon!




Yesterday's winner was John Ferguson's name, "Rhinotar." A big, burly name for a big, burly dragon.

Tomorrow (next dragon) we'll be having some celebrity judges; Rapunzel authors Shannon and Dean Hale! That's right, Friday's dragon name will be chosen by Shannon and Dean Hale. They are experts on this specific type of dragon; Twin dragons. Have those double-names ready! You'll have all weekend to enter.

Chizricillar

Polar explorers discovered Chizricillar frozen in the ice. After a few months, the site became a hotbed of activity: biologists, paleontologists, reporters, bureaucrats, and wackos. But Chizricillar wasn't a frozen artifact from an ancient era, he was simply hibernating between ice ages.

To be fair, the people studying him had never heard of Giant Bearded Ice Wyrms before; they also didn't know how bad tempered they are when they wake up. In Chizricillar's defense, he hadn't dealt with other creatures in well over 10,000 years, and few as fragile as these. After a some morning stretches (and a couple minor ice blasts) the outpost was demolished.

It took several hours to work his whole body out of the ice onto the surface. It was hard to breath and move, he would need to molt soon. Maybe this time, he would get his wings. But first he needed to find the others and wake them. He felt their magic pulsing farther south.

Kanungayok Apkalawok Nanuk -

Roughly translated from Inuit, this means "Vicious Devourer of Polar Bears".

Before the dawn of man, this great and rare beast roamed (scooted across) the Arctic icecaps. In this first active stage of life the K.A.N. would devour any living creature it could find on the ice (it had a great aversion to the open ocean and could only consume whales that had beached themselves on the ice). Although the K.A.N. was not exactly the quickest, it did use a chemical frost breath to temporarily stun/freeze its prey.

Like its name, the K.A.N. preferred the meat of polar bears, making this fearsome bug the only creature that would strike fear into the heart of the giant white bears (until man came along.)

When the K.A.N. would become too fat and engorged to move it would take on the appearance of a small glacier. Some animals would not notice the semi-dormant beast would still be frozen by the K.A.N.'s frost breath.

In the last month of this stage of the K.A.N.'s life it would produce a extremely hard diaphanous cocoon that appeared like a glacier. In this cocoon, the K.A.N. would be dormant for approximately 65 years, after which it would emerge as Ajugakangitok Tarralikitak (The Almighty Butterfly).

Frostbiter. Many explorers in the Northern-most part of Antarctica tell tales of the monsrous Frostbiter Dragon. Many expeditioners have stumbled into his warm ice cave to escape the cold and NEVER COME BACK OUT!!! He hangs upsidedown on the roof of the cave to blend in with the icicles and, when you least expect it, he silently crawls down the wall. Then he sneaks up behind you and bites you with his massive mandibles! His poisen starts to sink in, and you feel...cold. You start to turn blue, than purple,...THAN YOU TURN BLACK. The frostbite poisen has finally settled in to your bloodstream, and you freeze to death. Those who are alive to tell the story are in no condition to go on a walk anytime soon. So if this has taught you anything about the Frostbiter, then please do remember: Stay away from strange, blue catterpillars in ice caves!
