Solamander Igniserpens infernalis ("Fire Serpent from Hell") When the truth finally dawns, it dawns in fire...is what the last foolish adventurer said when he combated a Solamander unarmed. Solamanders are among the solariformes ("Solar-Users"), creatures reliant on the sunshine for locomotion. In the fiery lizard's case, the sun's energy is its driving life energy and main method of attack. By releasing the stored energy of a star's light, it can expel temperate flames of up to 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. It is commonly believed that the fire it produces is unlimited in supply, although this is untrue. If a Solamander runs out of solar energy, it cannot breath fire and will sieze movements completely. It is this dormant state that all Solamanders try to avoid, as it leaves them completely vulnerable and susceptible to harm. To prevent such a catastrophe to their bodies, they move slowly during the night to conserve energy. Sources of heat, such as lava pools, are a popular spot for Solamanders to rest when their solar energy levels are low. Submerging themselves in lava is a safe way to protect themselves until the sun rises in the daytime. The feathery extensions of a Solamander are treasured by collectors, both for their soft feel and hot touch. Unfortunately, obtaining these feathers isn't too easy, as even in death, as a solariforme, the miniature stars embedded on the creature self-destruct, akin to the explosion of a supernova on a smaller scale.
