A Kyshakk is a tier-4 Fire Creation. It is a very strong magical-reliant creation, based off the real life Stegosaurus. They were created by the Shapers in order to fight the rebels and take an advantage over them, but later the rebels managed to create their own Kyshakks.
Being an advanced creation, only skilled Shapers with high authority have the ability to create Kyshakks.
Introduced in the tutorial of Geneforge 4, the player does not gain the ability to shape one of these Fire creations until late in the game.
Kyshakks are quadruped creatures, created from reptilian stock with large fyora influence. They are 12 spans (9' ; 2,7m) and weigh 350 stones (4900lbs ; 2223kg). They have a standard reptilian skin and an extra-strong plating on their back and head. They also have small horns on their head and a small tail.
Thanks to charge-storing glands in series along their spine and belly, Kyshakks have the ability to bounce lightning back and forth along their body and to hurl it out of their mouth towards enemies. They can also bite their enemies in melee, which can do a pretty decent amount of physical damage.
Kyshakks have a low intelligence, a moderate stability, and a calm temperament when warm and fed. Thus, they don't tend to go rogue, especially when we take care of them, but they still need a skilled master with a very strong authority in order to be kept under good control.
When they go rogue, they wander alone in nature, often searching for a shelter and other rogue Kyshakks. Thus, rogue Kyshakks can often be found in small groups or even herds, under a shelter, or both.
