A creature of unknown species or motivation, Nithhogg hails from the mysterious Interface between the human world and the Digital world. Hellbent on entering the Digital world, it has forced its way through, warping its body and the digital space around it. But is has become sealed.
Its very presence excites any data molecules it comes into contact with, unleashing great power at the expense of stability. Its body is the source of the mysterious leeches that have plagued the Fire Kingdom, and it can feel the Digital World through them.
It appears to lack great intelligence, instead showing similar reactions to a child when confronted. While it does not seem malicious, its very presence is toxic to the Digital World and has been being rejected since its first appearance. As such it may react with hostility and should be approached with extreme caution.
Now free from the grip of the Interface, Nithhogg's body has fully formed. Its a mixture of absorbed data and otherworldly matter, but while it appears mismatched and frail, its strength, agility and manipulative ability is highly deceptive. Close contact in particular can be hazardous.
Every moment it spends in the Digital World allows it to develop its mind all the more, although its mannerisms and reactions remain as wary and cautious as always, though like a child it can have spells of intense anger and fear. It is also prone to lashing out under highly stressful situations.
Moulded from the raw data and very essence of the Digital World, this golem is very primitive. Its body is fragile and easily breakable, although it can regenerate at a frightening speed.
Despite its fragility it's a horrifically powerful fighter, able to use its own data to melt the world around it or move at an incredible pace. Mindless and dead in virtually every aspect, the golem is an abomination against the Digital World.
A sturdy, solid biological machine with only eternal consumption on its mind. It can absorb solid rock and metal simply by clasping onto it and it has a horrific fixation on wiping out living data.
It is heavily armoured, and still retains the regenerative capabilities of its original template, though it does so at a slower rate. An army of golems is marching across the Digital World, and its very structure is under threat.
Nithhogg's deadliest golem isn't designed for absorption or disintegration, but extermination. Lacking in intelligence but with a predator's instinct, it marches through the land, honing in on any sign of life and purging it without mercy.
It's entire body is designed as a living weapon, with spring-loaded legs, archaic wings, hyper-acute senses and guillotine-like legs capable of slicing through flesh, bone and even solid metal. It cannot be reasoned with, tricked or avoided. Once the hunter has you in its sights, the pursuit is on, and it won't let up until somebody dies.
Desperation and madness have transformed Nithhogg's body beyond recognition, as it has absorbed the majority of the Digital World. The sheer volume and power of the data has torn its body apart and warped it into a vicious and deadly fighter, with strength that far surpasses its brittle appearance.
It can heal in seconds and its organs and false muscles have been worked into overdrive, giving it incredible speed and stamina. It still retains its intelligence and coherance, although it is far beyond reason and logic. It is a creature driven to the very limit of its life, and as such, is very dangerous indeed.
A world in one body. An entity powered only by the desperation to live. A power great enough to break the barriers between worlds. The dragon beneath the roots of Yggdrasil has broken free and it is ready to devour all in its path.
