Longleg Description

  • Longleg's look like a Phorusrhacids. An extinct type of carnivorous flightless birds.
  • Longleg's head terminates in a vertical pair of sharp, beak-like structures, and is mounted on a long, flexible neck.
  • Six optical sensors are located on each side of the head in the same position as a ratite’s eyes.
  • Three antennae extend from the back of the head, from which the Longleg can emit a signal calling for reinforcements.
  • Mounted on the chest are a pair of bulbous components called Concussion Sacs. These are part of its scanning array, as well as powering one of its attacks.
  • Each of its two short, flightless wings are equipped with three engines that emit jet-like blasts of flame, which the Longleg uses in attacks.
  • One of its two feet is equipped with a single claw.
  • A power cell composed of a pair of components called Sparkers is mounted on its lower back.
