These mutant specimens of Taraxacum officinale are thought to be deliberate plant-animal hybrids that resemble African Lions in general appearance (though they are more mountain lion sized) consisting of four legs and a head, with a greenish, leafy skin and a yellow flower mane for males and both sexes spotting a tail ending in a dandelion seed tuft. Like Lions they live in prides with three or four females, one or two males, and any associated "cubs." As with the felines they resemble, they are carnivorous.
Commonly found in savannah and grasslands, they are also encountered in semi-arid wastelands as hunting groups. Female Deathdelions tend to act together when hunting, encircling prey. Deathdelion males tend to act as scouts and protect the pride from outsiders. They attack with their carnivorous bite or by thorn-like "claws" on the ends of their limbs.
They typically lair in small caves and rock overhangs. Treasure is typically found in their dens and consists of goods left behind be humanoid victims, scattered among the bones and carcasses.
