The dense shadows that cling like a fog to Umbara's surface can cause a traveler to absentmindedly step into a tangle of vines, and it is then too late to escape the clutches of a vixus creature. The vines are the tentacles of the beast. Seven ropy limbs stretch out from a dome-shaped mouth, and smaller, secondary tentacles fill the gaps between these larger arms. Caught within the grip of a tentacle, the prey thrashes helplessly as it is drawn towards the beast's mouth -- the only visible portion of the creature's underground body. As the sharp teeth part, rays of light shine from within, briefly illuminating the poor victim's final moments. One final tentacle, pink and well muscled, reaches from within the vixus' maw, capped with a three-taloned grasper, to grab the squirming meal deeper into the creature's tooth-lined gullet.
