Our next installment in the monster encyclopedia is a lecui. Lecui are a rare and important garg. Their main characteristic is their self-healing capability, however, the thing about lecui, is that they can look however they need to to survive in any environment. If they are in a dry environment and need to preserve water, they can grow a camel hump. If they are in a cold environment, they can grow fur. If they are in a volatile environment, they can grow any number of defensive or offensive features.
Typically though, they are known for their tusks, multiple tails, and spines. Personality-wise, they generally keep to themselves, and aren’t interested in interacting with anyone—monsters or humans.
The most important aspect of the lecui is that their self-healing capabilities can be harnessed for human use. But you should only need a small amount of blood to create the potion. It’s also risky to use it more than a couple of times, as it can be addictive. I recommend only using it in the case of extreme injury. It also only works to repair—damaged skin, muscle, etc. It won’t get rid of cancer or fix depression. Use with care.
If you wanted to kill a lecui, the method for doing so would depend on what defensive or offensive features its developed, but in most cases, a blade should do the trick. But honestly, you should just leave them alone.
