Ecology: A relic left over from the Permian, Inox is a tetrapod of immense size. Fully amphibious, Inox prefers the water, and will rarely leave it, unless forced to by lack of readily available food or the drying up of waterways due to drought. Highly vulnerable out of water, Inox could only moved slowly, its short legs seemingly unable to haul it bulk any distance. Young Inoxes hatch from eggs laid in creek and stream beds, appearing as large tadpoles and feeding on carrion, grubs, water insects, and worms. A full-grown Inox will eat just about anything it an swallow, including water birds, fish, small turtles, large frogs, and immature dinosaurs.

Personality/Motivation: Typical animal motivations.

Powers/Tactics: Normally found in murky marshes and weed-choked pools, Inox likes to dwell anywhere with sufficient water plants to provide cover. An ambush predator, it tends to lie on the bottom, bursting upwards to take anything it can get its jaws around. Normally, prey is gripped in the jaws and hauled back to the bottom, where it will drown while Inox tears into it with its teeth.

Appearance: Measuring up to 18 feet in length, Inox is a huge salamander with am arrowhead-shaped head. It is an orange-tan color with tiny black eyes and thick legs.

Designer's Notes: Inox was developed using the Crocodile and Giant Frog character sheets found in the HERO System Bestiary. It didn't appear in King Kong.
