Cockatrice are large, vicious, lizard-like creatures that are known to prowl the Forest of Balor.
A Cockatrice is a creature with the legs of a dragon and the head of a rooster. It is said that a Cockatrice's stare can turn people to stone and that a weasel is the only creature immune to its powers. It is also thought that a Cockatrice would die instantly if it heard a rooster crow, and according to legend, having a Cockatrice look itself in a mirror is one of the few sure-fire ways to kill it. The Cockatrice is also able to fly with the set of wings on its back and like the head of Medusa, the Cockatrice's powers of were thought still active after death.
The word Cockatrice comes from the word Cocatris, which means tracker.
