General Attacks

Special Abilities
Spike Flail: Extreme damage AOE attack used only when the wyrm attempts to use a weaponskill when it is attacking with its tail. This move will generally one-hit KO everyone in the AOE. Absorbed by 3 shadows of Utsusemi.
Horrid Roar: Single-target dispel attack that removes buffs. On CoP wyrms (Tiamat, Ouryu, Jormungand, and Vrtra), Horrid Roar removes all buffs including food and resets hate by a large amount. On Fafnir, Horrid Roar will remove a single buff, with a little bit of hate reset. On Nidhogg, Horrid Roar will remove all buffs including food, with a moderate amount of hate reset.
Absolute Terror: Induces Terror for a long period of time. Ouryu's Absolute Terror is Area Effect, while for other wyrms it is single target.
Wing: 30' AoE magic damage attack caused by the wyrm flapping its wings. The element of the damage and the status effect incurred by it varies from wyrm to wyrm.
Breath: A Breath Attack of the Wyrm's element. Standing on the Wyrm's front feet avoids most damage from Breath.
Magic: Wyrms may use magic based on their color. For example, Tiamat is red and uses Fire-based spells. Fafnir and Nidhogg do not use magic, however.
Draw In: If the person that is #1 on the wyrm's hate list that is out of attack range, the wyrm will rarely go looking for that person. Wyrms will draw-in that person into attack range. Wyrms may drawn in several people in at once anywhere in the zone.
Note: Notorious Monsters in this family may use all of the above and/or additional unique special abilities.

Historical Background

Wyrm is the Germanic word for dragon (Old English: wyrm, Old High German: wurm, Old Norse: ormr) and means snake or serpent. In Old English wyrm means "serpent", draca means "dragon". Though a winged creature, the wyrm is generally to be found in its underground lair, a cave that identifies it as an ancient creature of earth, like the mythic serpent, that was a source of knowledge even in Eden: knowledge is the temptation. Likely, the dragons of European and Mid Eastern mythology stem from the cult of snakes found in religions throughout the world.

The wyrm is typically the dragon of the modern period usually depicted as a huge fire-breathing, scaly and horned dinosaur-like creature, with leathery wings, with four legs and a long muscular tail. It is sometimes shown with feathered wings, crests, fiery manes, and various exotic colorations. Iconically it has at last combined the Chinese dragon with the western one.

In modern fantasy, such as in Dungeon and Dragons, a Wyrm is usually a dragon at its oldest and most powerful form, the final stage of its life. This type of Wyrm hoards treasure and is one of the toughest foes around.
