The Afanc is a Welsh Mythology lake monster/demon, variously described as a beaver, crocodile, and even dwarf-like creature, that kills his prey with poison darts. I tried to combine those varied characteristics with avian ones, since this creature was to be part of the Brythoniaid of Powys' Wocorau, which are ancient bird-like creatures related to dragons, from Mierce Miniatures' Darklands.
