Zins are a type of Drake often known as Thunder Wolf Drakes due to their prowess in using of lightening and their wolf like howl. They have teal scales and yellow armor scutes on their body as well as white pseudo-fur. They have large claws on both their arms and legs as well as small blades coming out from their wrists and ankles. They have a large powerful tail, which they freely use to club their opponents. On their heads they have two horns pointing foreward as well as small wolf like ears. Zins absorb electricity as they do so, a blue glowing marks form on their body, eventually they reach a super charged state causing an electrical aura to form around them, their hair and fur to stand on end and for spikes to jut out of their armored parts. When enraged their electrical aura glows even brighter and the spikes on their armor stand even more prominently. Like all dragons, Zins are capable of taking on the primal form that they had before monsterization.
Zins dwell in mountains and forests all throughout the Reptile Kingdom. They hold large territories and live mostly solitary lives, living independently from each other. However they aren't hard to find if a person were to know what to look for. Zins are quite fond of lightening bugs. One of their prefered ways to relax is to simply lay down where these bugs cam be found and watch the twinkling lights. For some unknown reason, these bugs are also attracted to the Zins as well. For this reason, all one has to do to find an area where a Zin frequents or has made her home is to head out at night and find an area with an unusually high number of lightening bugs. Where there are areas like that, a Zin is sure to be nearby.
Zins are prideful and for good reason. Among Drakes there are few who can match them in terms of speed, acrobatic agility, and physical power. They often end up being near the top of the food chain in the areas the dwell in as the powerful Dragons and Tyrannos who can beat them are rare. Zins usually move in a confident swagger that makes it quite clear that they belive themselves too powerful for any normal foe to beat. Often they require an opponent to prove his/her strength before the Zin will them seriously. Despite their arrogance however, Zins are actually rather pleasant to be around. They are rather cheerful when around people they think of as a friend. They enjoy showing off, often using their acrobatic prowess and electrical abilities to try to entertain their friends. They are also extremely loyal to their friends as well. They have a tendency to take responsibility for the well being of those they've befriended and will often try to help when their friends are troubled and frequently check up on their friends when they don't see them often enough. For this reason, despite living a mostly solitary life, Zins often have the weaker mamono in the area as their loyal friends and followers. Needless to say, the easiest way for an enraged Zin to come charging out to end your life is to threaten her friends.
In battle Zins are force to be reckoned with. They deal out crushing blows with their claws, use their entire bodies to deal out earth shaking slam attacks, while at the same time acrobaticly bounding and flipping out of the way of attacks or flipping around to deal out blows with their tail. They supplement this with frequently shooting lightening balls and summoninv lightening down from the sky. They frequently pause to howl. When they do this they draw in electrical energy from their surroundings to charge themselves up however this takes concentration and they can't move while they do this, giving their opponent time to recover or go on the offensive. However, if their opponent doesn't stop them they will increase their charge each time, increasing their own speed and power as well as adding an electrical charge to their physical attacks and increasing the amount of lightening they can summon and lightening balls they can shoot. Eventually they reach their Supercharged state which causes their speed and power to become overwhelming and their attacks become a relentless storm of claws and lightening. If hurt badly enough they can can be knocked out of their Supercharged state but their foes are often crushed long before that point. It should also be known that being hit with electrical attacks will not harm her but instead increase her level of charge.
Zins are often honest with their feelings. When one finds a man she likes she will often just come out declare her love and her intentions to mate with him. If he refuses she will not immediately rape him, instead she will attempt to be friends with as she has done with others and work extra hard to help and protect him. At the same time she will attempt to subtly seduce him. Often she "accidentally" will display her body to him and flirt with him. If he continues to refuse her she will eventually reach her wits end and she will force him to the ground and rape him. When does except her however she will be overjoyed and quickly take hims someplace safe and private to initiate intercourse. It should be noted that if a man were to befriend a Zin before she take romantic interest in him, he is often putting himself on the fast track to becoming her husband.
A married Zin is extremely loyal and devoted to her husband, she will always seek to help him with his problems and protect him from danger. While Zins are rarely the most domestically inclined they are willing and eager to use their talents to use in supporting her husband in achieving his goals, helping him through his problems, and defending him from whatever the world throws at them. Because of this they are well valued by the Dragoons as a strong and reliable ground mount. Anyone married to a Zin however should be cautious. The Zin will still be loyal to her old mamono friends and will often attempt to get the unmarried ones wed to her husband. To the Zin this is a way to make sure that all of her friends and her husband are all happy and cared for so if man isn't careful he could easily end up with a harem instead of just his Zin.
There is one known Subspecies of Zin, known as the Stygian Zin. These Zins have black scales and armor, white hair and pseudo-fur, and their markings glow red instead of blue. Stygian Zins are notably less cheerful than their normal cousins and have a more stoic and brooding demeneor often seeming to be very lonely. They have a notably higher resistance to extreme temperatures allowing them to make their homes in the more secluded volcanic and icey regions of the Reptile Kingdom. They are much stronger than a normal Zin and the lightening that Stygian Zins shoot is black and crimson and is infused with an emergy called Dragons Blight that only a small number of mamono and beasts can use. The Dragons Blight works essentially as anti-magic and clings to its victims, causing weapons and armor to lose their enchantments and blocking spellcasters from their magic for as long as the energy is infused in them. Stygian Zins are also more skilled in battle than even there cousins, stringing out long and punishing combos on their foes. When charging up Stygian Zins cause bursts of Dragons Blight to form around them to make harder to appoach and interrupt the charging process and they are even capable of moving while charging albeit slowly. Because of their hellish appearance they sometimes referred to as Lightening Hellhound Dragons.
There is also a rare mutation that can occur in both types of Zins that causes a deviant individual called a Thunderqueen. The scales of a Thunderqueen are tinged a golden green color and one horn grows abnormally large. Thunderqueens are always in their Supercharged state and use a green tinged lightening. However they can charge up even further, beyond what other Zins are capable of. At this Hypercharged state their lightening turns a golden color. Thunderqueens are known for being as strong as any dragon and capable of discharging immense amounts of electricity. A Stygian Thunderqueen remains the same color of a normal Stygian Zin but still has the enlarged horn. Stygian Thunderqueens still use the crimson and black, Dragon Lightening even in their Hypercharged state but with far greater skill and power.
[And here we have the next MH mamono, the Zin, based off of the Zinogre. I don't have much to say here. The term Thunder Wolf Drake kinda speeks for itself. Badassed. Anywho, expect lots of electricity puns coming from me this time around. Information on the Reptile Kingdom and links to the other Reptile Kingdom mamono can be found here: (http://monstergirlencyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:The_Reptile_King/The_Reptile_Kingdom) You can also make suggestions there if you want, just follow the rules on that.
As per my norm, feedback and criticism is welcome and encouraged, so long as your criticisim is more than mindlessly insulting me, I want something useful out of it. So tell me what you think of her]
The Lagia also used lightening but not tonthe same extent as these lightening dragon puppies. Being the badassed and protective canine, the Zin also takes the role of a RK Hellhound only less domineering. I dare say that she has a magnetic personality. I will say that I got a pretty good picture this time around. The Zinogre in the game has as a rather striking appearance finding a picture that fits that and is also accurate to MGE isn't easy for most of these girls but I managed pretty well here.
Yep..though I'll leave the puns here in your charge. After all, people will bolt at the chance of serious puns....Either way I'd probably try to search one of these guys out...but with my luck her group of friends would be a bunch of Tigs.
Zin is short for Zinogre. And those things are anything but minions. It's one of the big flagship monsters that wrecks your shit. It's only called a Zin because non mamono versions are also in the kingdom. Zins are the mamono and Zinogres are the giant murder beasts. The point is, Zins are boss monsters not minions so...
Don't worry too much. We're talking about a rather friendly type of mamono. Sonyhe chances of her not wanting you to touch her is pretty low. Though I imagine you'd still get a jolt of a different kind from touching her.
Actually the Zin and Lagia are about equal in power. The Lagia is bigger and has greaters physical atrength and toughness but the Zin is faster, more agile, and better with her electricity. The big thing is that the Lagia can't use her lightening on the Zin. The fight is like a lion vs a crocodile, it all depends on where it goes down. On land, lagia get clobbered in the water and the Zin is screwed.
Lagias also use electricity and are resistant to it. One of the Lagias favorite tricks to electrify the water around them so the Zin doing it wouldn't do much. The Zin goes beyond being simply resistant to electricity to flat out growing stronger from it. Electrocuting a Zin only makes her charge up faster.
the bang over the eyes, the honesty, the awesome fighting skill and power (hell i would let her charge to full power so i can have a decent fight), the... everything about her! this one is truely worthy!
Watt? You expect me not to make electricity puns? That is a shockingly blasphemous notion. However, since I am a merciful beast king. I shall refrain from making more puns until tomorrow morning. So there, I'm not completely cold-blooded.
I think he ment me. Rep, you should know not all my waifus are fighters. The Human, Kikimora, Maid Gecko and some others learned simple sky dancing and teleportation so they can enter my spiritual Realm.
Bro, that was cool. But blows the power balance that I have set up completely out of the water. That think could slaughter a dragon like it was nothing and a Thunderqueen version? That'd dominate a Lilim. My character is overpowered but I try to avoid that with my mamono. A Howling Zinogre and most top tier monster from MH Frontier are just too much.
I could probably get my revenage on LOS, but he probably is ten times more powerful then the Stygian Zinogre, and can just insta-kill it...wait, why isn't the Howling Zinogre being made? Because it's too OP? I don't know man, IT DOESN'T LOOK SO OP TO ME.
He made a mamono. It's an a fan mamono of the Reptile Kingdom. So like... fanfic of fanfic. Which is cool I think. There's a link on the RK page. Just put the new mamono alert system through its first run by the way.
Having played Monster Hunter World for a few weeks and looking at Stygian Zinorge reminds me. If there is ever an opportunity to make something like an undead reptillian Hellhound, Odogaron is just it, man. I am willing to see what you comes up with should you decide to do that one.
Everyone grab your pitchforks and torches, it's time to storm TRK's home and demand that he gives us more Monster Hunter based Waifus. (Large crowd behind chanting "We want Waifus!" while I hide behind a tree waiting for the show to start.)
The Reptile King wrote: Stygian Zin, every bit as protective and friendly as a normal Zin and twice as proud, but not nearly as loud about it.
In addition she is stronk altough i can care less about combat abillities, what really sells it for me is how lonely she seems to be, just makes me wanna socialise with her y'know?, also imo, she is the hottest mamono without a second thought and no competition period..... k heres why.
Now now gentlemen, while I fang you for your hard work in making these puns, it's still quite pawsible that new readers would have a ruff reaction to them. Besides, you pups got a long way to go before you can keep up with me.
