  • Current manipulation, Jaw Finder can manipulate and draw in air and water Currents around them to do a variety of things, such as greatly expanding the range that they can actively smell and other things you can do with controlled currents.
  • zephyr mode; Jaw Finder uses the currents around them to create a slipstream and winds for hidden sails all over their body, this allows Jaw finder to 'swim' around at high speeds while also turning rapidly and striking with increased force, Jaw Finder also has enhanced spacial awareness and can glide.  while doing this and can increase the currents over time by building up focus and spending magical energy, pushing the speed even further, although eventually the handling worsens.

Personality:

Jaw Finder is a being that lives to hunt, taste, and consume.  they go from habitat to habitat hunting and eating all matter of prey and predator alike, then moving on, once the unique flavors have become known.  despite this animistic nomadic lifestyle, Jaw Finder is quite intelligent and cognitive, although very inhuman.  Jaw Finder acts with a strong sense of desire, pride, and respect; and believes the first two inherent in all life, while the third is an important way to see others and live in multiple worlds.  Jaw Finder respects the pride of the herbivore who eats the grass just as much as the pride of the carnivore that eats the herbivore.  in this way, there is no greater or lesser, just a constant test of one's desire to live against another, and a pride in the struggle which should be respected.

it is in this that Jaw Finder also respects the alien world of soft bodied humanoids.  Jaw Finder doesn't understand most of 'human' society or thought process because it is so detached from the literal, also because Jaw Finder has barely anything in common with members of society, but still respects them because they must be doing something right to flourish as much as they do.  even if they are small, soft, shaky, noisy, have way too many emotions, rely on an overly complex system of expressing those emotions that makes no sense, and have difficulties with respecting many species; they can things really well and some are definitely trying to not be so alien.

Jaw Finder also struggles with human language, ideas like pronoun dependent sentence structure, or being an active speaker are just unnatural to them.  so every sentence is said passively and as if the pronoun was it.  also metaphor is a struggle.

Equipment:

it's a lizard, why would it wear pants?

can store things in it's throat, probably idk
