Basilisk is a large Awakened reptile that measures 2.5 meters long from snout to tail, and weighs about 100 kilograms, similar in size and appearance to Komodo dragons. It has black and yellow scales and up to 40 saw-edged teeth. It is a carnivore that feeds primarily on small mammals, but will eat just about anything that it can catch.
The Basilisk is dual-natured and has a unique spell-like ability to petrify creatures that it gazes upon. This makes it dangerous to study, although some corporations use Basilisks for security purposes.
