Daeodon Comedentis is the largest known species of entelodont, an omnivorous family of ancient mammals that are sometimes referred to as “Hell Pigs.” Even though Daeodon has as many similarities to modern Hippopotamidae as it does to Suina, I’ve found that to be a suitably fitting nickname.

Daeodon is as mean as it looks, and any survivor who wanders too close to its feeding grounds will find that out the hard way. As an omnivore with a voracious appetite, Daeodon scavenges, forages, and hunts to survive. It has little qualms when it comes to its diet, and that has helped it thrive both on the Island’s dry grasslands as well as sandy ecosystems.

Its temper hasn’t hurt either, as many would-be predators would rather seek out less vicious prey. Its uncommonly high metabolism enables it to heal very rapidly, making it a difficult beast to bring down or even tranquilize.

Domesticated

Many tribes have made excellent use of Daeodon packs within their war parties, not only because of its fierce nature but due to its remarkable ability to rapidly heal itself. I’ve theorized that this healing factor is why it seems to have such a high rate of food consumption, which also makes it difficult to maintain; Daeodon may well eat its owners out of house and home. Far more extraordinary, however, is that this rapid regeneration is evidently able to affect nearby allies, and consequently worth the upkeep!
