Accessing File 6549
6549, or 'Skua', is a successful reconstruction of the old IceWing Deity, 'The Denizen'.
It is animalistic by nature and runs mostly on instinct. While sentient and capable of communication and higher thought, it does not have the intelligence we desired.
It is currently kept due to his perfection in other fields we focused on.
Skua is currently the largest experiment we have created. With a large, heavy frame, his limbs are big to support his body weight.
His scales are armored and reinforced through tight interlocking, rendering sharp objects useless against his scales.
Under scales and black skin is a large layer of blubber and muscles, allowing him to insulate effectively in cold environments, and withstand crushing force more effectively. This muscle growth allows Skua to lift large weights and crush dragons under talon if necessary. His claws are scooped to allow more grip on slippery surfaces.
His neck and belly are not scaled and have incredibly dense fur. This fur deflects many attacks, and can almost 'absorb' things that are pushed into it. This fur can shed however, it only occurs in high temperatures where skua may overheat. In this situation, his underbelly is incredibly vulnerable and sensitive due to the lack of scales.
Skua's spines run down his neck, back, tail, and end in a symmetrical point. These spines typically lay resting, however, can be flared slightly when threatening something.
Skua has acquired scars from various incidents throughout his life. These scars are incredibly sensitive and should not be touched under any circumstances.
Instinctual, Protective, Respectful.
Skua, while clearly capable of higher thought, chooses not to use it. On his own, he is very animalistic in action and desires, however, among the company of the other subjects, he uses his brain much more frequently, not simply focusing on the bare necessities of life.
Due to his reliance on instinct, he is capable of easily being conditioned and trained to perform activities outside of what he would typically perform.
Skua is incredibly protective and attached to those he bonds with. He forms a mental 'pack' of dragons he has connected with, and often follows and protects them from harm. This bond, while incredibly strong, often will influence how he views what is normally considered harmless. Skua is often unnecessarily protective when around his 'pack', and it is imperative that you make yourself seem of no threat when interacting in this state.
Skua is also especially attached to certain subjects, and he becomes incredibly uncooperative and violent when forceful separation is enacted. When separated from the group, he seems purposeless
Unusually, Skua holds a deep respect for living creatures and his fellow subjects. During hunting behavior, he only kills what is necessary, and has been observed burying bones of dead animals. This respect for the dead seems to be learned from stimuli, however, we are not sure what stimuli has prompted such behavior, as it is not instinctual.
This respect also manifests in respect for his peers. Boundaries they have set are respected, and while we have observed whining when subjects choose to separate from him, he is fully compliant with their wishes.
Skua has been observed with unusual behavior.
He has been seen catching moths and other sorts of bugs, possibly to give as 'gifts', however, only moths have been seen given to others.
His attachment towards subject 7613 has also been apparent, as he has developed courtship behavior towards it. This manifests in gift-giving, and he regularly gives her live moths and raw meat, possibly to show he can provide for a family.
Skua also tries getting close to it as often as physically possible, though he respects its boundaries. Whether it returns the affections is not conclusive.
He has a special fascination and curiosity with creatures smaller than him, such as small animals/dragons.
For two months during the warmer months, skua must be locked in his room. This yearly routine developed to protect the other subjects, as he is incredibly volatile and aggressive in this time period.
he's in love with adroit and sits on the rest
