INSPIRATION: Flower Hat Jelly

in which I think about what role the Flower Hat Jelly could have in The Infinity Saga. A healer might be needed!

A FEW FACTS

Flower Hat Jellyfish
Flower Hat Jellyfish

When looking at real earth creatures for inspiration in a story, I always like to look at a bit more than only the photo of the creature. In this case I now know:

  • these creatures can grow to be around 15 cm (6 in) in diameter,
  • they have lustrous tentacles that, when not in use, adhere to the rim of the jellyfish,
  • they eat mainly fish.

INSPIRATION

This might just be something that a Healer can encounter, or rather the cause of something a Healer might encounter. Knowing these creatures eat mainly fish, the Fishermen may just happen to run into such a creature and need the help of a Healer.

DRAGON RIDERS AND JELLYFISH

Dragon Riders have no love for jelly fish. They’ve had to clean the wounds some larger jelly fish had caused with their tentacles on their dragon companions far too often.

MAGES AND JELLYFISH

Like dragon riders, mages have no love for jellyfish. Their scholars do study these creatures because of the rashes (and other wounds) these creatures might cause, but it’s no one’s favorite research subject.
