A Suma (Cephadrome from Monster Hunter)

A non-flying, carnivorous wyvern that inhabits the desert regions of the world. They "swim" in the soft sanded deserts.

Rank B Wyvern


They have a large flat head that help them push through sands and highly effective lungs that diffuses oxygen quickly into their bodies. The nostrils are located on the top of their head so they can breathe by just skimming the surface. They detect prey by vibrations in the sand. They have a water storage organ within their bodies, these vary greatly in size but they have been observed living without water for many months.


After millenias of evolving, they have webbed feet to increase surface area, so they will not sink into the

sand. The dorsal fin also act as hearing aid. They often "swim" in the sand, with the fin visible to listen for prey. Their tail and front limbs are similar to fishes fins, these both help them swim in the sand.


Their size is slightly smaller than that of other wyverns, 100 year old Sunas would be the size of a small house.


They often engulf sand in their mouths, spitting them out at high speeds to daze or injure prey. They seem to possess no other breath attacks other than this, though naturally being stepped upon or side swiped by a Suna is not pleasant.

Detection and WeaknessEdit

Their dorsal fins are often seen above the sand. Sand spraying around it which serves as a way of spotting the wyvern. Since their dorsal fin acts as a hearing organ they are highly sensitive to high frequency noises. Their skin are hard and coarse, adapted to swimming in sand. The weakest part of their body is their stomach and neck.


They often live alone, leading solitary lives. Though once they mate they often stay together to guard the hatchling until they reach a stage where they can defend themselves. They teach their young to spit sand, and swim effectively. No sunas have been observed swimming in water, though it is believed that their large mass would not let them swim as effectively in water.
