Just another unfortunate accident from the Cult's meddling in void magics, The Father's Hounds are a beast that you would never want to encounter.
Considered to be one of the major war-weapons of Unia's Army, The Father's Hounds are a force to be reckoned with. Standing at an astonishing height of almost 5'8"-6', with reddened skin pulled tight around their bony frames. Their faces are a mass of metal and flesh, with their teeth constantly bared to showcase the impressive fangs that they have. The Father's Hounds have no eyes, an unfortunate by-product of the disgusting rituals that are used to create them. Instead they have the most impressive hearing and smell of any beasts in all of Ayril; Which makes them all the more dangerous. They can pick up the slightest breath, and sometimes can even hear the blood rushing in your veins if they pay close enough attention. They're known to hunt for sport, and are much more blood-thirsty than any normal animal that can be found in the world.
After the failure to create a fully sentient 11th general, Unia commanded his lackeys to attempt to create one more thing; A beast unlike any other. Understanding that he would have no possibilities of making a Sentient Humanoid, Unia decided that he would instead make a beast that would have only one thing on it's mind; Blood and war. The experiments were a success, and after hundreds of innocent blood shed to feed the beasts through each stage, the Father's Hounds had finally been created. Unia knew these beasts would serve well, after watching one of the massive creatures maim a lackey for merely getting too close. Unfortunately, the melding of metal and flesh forced the beasts to be completely blind. Despite this, they served well by using their amazing sense of scent and hearing.
A Father's Hound normally roams the land alone, but another one will always be in a 50-mile radius. They maim and kill whatever they find to be a challenge, and they almost always kill merely just for fun. When threatened (If any such creature to make a Father's Hound fight for it's life), the Hound will let out an ear-piercing, eerily human-like scream. From this scream, it will attract the other Hound who may be lurking around as well to come and aid them. All Hound's are telepathically connected, another unfortunate by-product of the awful experimentation. This means that they only live for a few years or so before they wither mentally from the constant screaming, and die shortly after.
If one finds a Father's Hound, it would be best advised to turn tail and run for the hills; Or merely kill yourself before it can get to you first.
