I love it. If only I could figure out some way to incorporate it into my Fallout Alaska Fan Lore. It's Non Cannon. And mainly for RPs and whatnot.

What do you think? Took some liberties.

The Tyrant is a beast that holds a misleading name. While it may look fierce and dangerous it is quite the opposite, unless provoked of course. The scaly skin often lead people to mistake this creature as reptilian but it's closest relative is the Sea Otter. Yes believe it or not this creature is a Mutated Sea Otter. Preying mostly on marine invertebrates, and sometimes fish. It has done much to keep the Mirelurk populations in check. But villagers find this creature a problem animal as it often roots around in food stores for Mirelurk meats and fish. And with pungent scent glands they taste something awful. They are a playful lot and are sometimes too inquisitive for their own good which forces hunters to either run them off, or if they've taken to human company kill them.

Dunno how it could root around stores, it's quite big and clumsy. And I still see it as a fierce predator. But hey, it's your setting, make it as you wish.

If you were a Mirelurk you'd be terrified.. But yeah I understand, I just didn't want to make every single creature found in the Alaska Fallout world hostile for no reason. That and I couldn't fit in a dragon. That wouldn't fly with the fan base, so a mutated otter was my next choice.. Why an otter?

Well I needed more water based creatures, and I can see this thing rising out of the water just haunting any nearby fisherman with it's appearance. Also for some unknown reason I totally see an otter in it.

Oh yes, he does. Although others often do not share his enthusiasm and they rarely survive it :)

Ha!
Have you noticed it hasn't got any hinder legs? It seriously spoils the composition... It wasn't so apparent when I painted it years ago, but now it hurts my eyes. Gotta paint it again ;)
