Art of a Terror Vlish from Geneforge 3.
A Terror Vlish is a special variant of the standard Vlish. It has a special ability to invoke fear and terror in enemies causing them to flee from their attackers.
In Geneforge 1 through 3 Terror Vlish were the upgraded version of Vlish, a magic creation. To upgrade any creation to its second form three points are needed in that creation and can be gained through a canisters or NPC trainers as well as a few books. Terror Vlish was replaced in Geneforge 4 and 5 with Charged Vlish which, in exchange for greater upfront firepower and health, deteriorates HP over time and will die after leaving an area.
Vlish are magical creatures which can fire harmful rays. This vicious variety projects a beam which fills the target with terror. It also has a poisonous sting for melee combat.
