Description: The Siberian Battra boasted a prominent horn that was a fearsome melee weapon. He could fire orange lightning-strand prism beams from his horn, along with purple energy blasts from his eyes. He was an excellent burrower and swimmer, and could fight just as well underwater as on land. His carapace was very resilient, and he could even burrow through lava without any apparent discomfort.
