Sea drakes take numerous forms, but the most commonly seen is the tidewinder. Although they only stand as tall as a typical hunting hound, these drakes can grow to substantial lengths. By winding across the sands as their forelimbs gallop, they can reach incredible speeds, allowing them to both catch prey and dive into the safety of the waves.

Oddly, they are chatty creatures and will often narrate the lives of passing walkers in softly muttered poetic verse. Do not expect romantic adaptations of your tale; the drakes are brutally honest if it means producing a pleasing rhyme.

You’re more likely to see a tidewinder on cold and stormy days than in the sunshine, perhaps because their scales do not dry out so quickly, or perhaps it simply adds to the drama of their poetic outbursts.
