Nidoran-FM: Poison Type
Nidoran sat in the small hole in the wall, her body shaking slightly. Whether it was from the adrenaline or the fear she wasn’t sure, but she knew she had to get it under control soon or she would be spotted. She closed her eyes tight and took a deep breath in… and out. This was no time to panic, she had found a good hiding place, now all that was left to do was wait for the creatures pursuing her to give up.
Although Nidoran are small, they are not not be underestimated. Most Female Nidoran prefer to hide from a fight rather then combat it head on, however if backed into a corner they will use their poisonous horn to ward off attackers. All the barbs on their bodies hold a small amount of the poisonous toxin, however their horn is the only one potent enough to actually cause damage to foes. This small horn is slightly rounded at the top and small, but can still pack quite a punch.
Out of Sight
In just a matter of moments a female Nidoran can make itself scarce, easily finding a place to hide away from anything that scares or threatens it. Their ability to hide in plain sight can be quite impressive at times. Using their small whiskers they can sense what way the wind is blowing or small movements around them allowing them to be able to always stay up wind from foes or know when to keep still and quiet when an enemy is nearby. Nidoran also have a set of very strong, front teeth that they use to crush berries or gnaw at things to create hiding spots. If they don’t have a hiding spot nearby they may feel uncomfortable and vulnerable.
Nidoran tend to make their homes in quiet, calm places where they don’t have to be on edge all the time. Many may find a home in small bogs or use their large teeth to carve homes into large trees. It is likely you have passed by one of their homes and didn’t even know it as they feel most comfortable when they are out of sight.
Allignment: Most female Nidoran are mild mannered and rather calm. They seem to prefer to sit in the background and observe things before jumping into something.
Weight: 15 LBS
The Nidoran line tends to live to be about 100 Years old. They reach maturity at 16 but are not considered to be adults till 18 years old. As they get older they tend to become more skittish and uneasy when not in hiding. Some 90 year old female Nidoran find that they are unable to stop themselves from constantly shaking in their old age even when they are calm. Because of this they sometimes have to take medicines to calm themselves or their bodies will give out.
