The Crested Jabberwock is a creature lifeform that is not a sophont.

  • It is an Avianoid species that most closely resembles a Terran Peacock.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

(Jabberwockiscristatus saevitia). Sometimes called the nightclaw, or the fanged death, the Crested Jabberwock is a medium-sized carnivore native to Kassan/Vega (Solomani Rim 0101 A-785757-E). Only a few members of the species have ever been transported offworld.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Crested Jabberwock is noted for its magnificent, multi-colored crest, which is used in displays of territorial aggression and courtship. This gorgeous crest is highly prized by hunters and trophy collectors throughout the Solomani Rim, and have made the animal a highly prized and much-sought-after target.

Inasmuch as the Crested Jabberwock is one of the most aggressive carnivores known in modern exobiology (they have been known to attack prey five times their size), the challenge of Jabberwock hunting has long been considered the ultimate proof of courage and skill in some circles.
