Race: ChiDog /kĪ’-dog/
Appearance: This animal is as tall as a small horse and a broad as a bull. It is covered in sinew and muscle and is a nightmare to behold. Besides it’s size, the most remarkable thing about it is the eyes. They are very large and have two pupils each. The pupils work independently of each other so one may be expanded while the other contracts.
Advantage: A chidog is a mutated wild dog. Born originally from a merging of twin dogs while in utero, the chidog had two of nearly everything including brains. The dog is still of the normal shape of a dog, but multiple muscles sets and organs make them very difficult to kill due to the secondary set of organs being able to fill in for the first while it heals.
Each brain has its own distinct personality and when both brains are active the two brains will actually combine efforts into a third distinct personality that tends to be a compromise between the two. It is possible to have one brain like someone and the other not. As long as the brain that likes that person is awake, they are not likely to attack them.
That being said, chidogs do not like anyone. They are hunters always on the prowl for their next meal and they rarely sleep. When sleeping is required, it does it one brain at a time. When any threat is found, they will rarely back down from it preferring to completely remove the threat for good by killing it.
Chidogs live in the forests and rarely encounter humans, but sometimes a lone animal may stray into a human settled area and will prey on livestock and citizens.
