Aron #304


Aron is a quadruped with four short legs and a huge spherical head. Its body is black, with gray armor plates covering its head, back, and legs. Small gaps in the armor may be found all around its body. The biggest two apertures on its head are for its light blue eyes, with one opening on each side of the spike on its back. From its rear, a single, blunt spike protrudes.

Aron survives by mining iron ore from mountains. This mineral is used to create its body. Hunger may sometimes lead it to descend from the mountains to chew bridges and railways, making it a nuisance. After developing, it creates a new suit of armor, while its old abandoned armor is collected and used to generate iron items. Since ancient times, people have been collecting Aron’s discarded armor. It can destroy a big dump truck with a single all-out charge. It is found on mountains.
