Ardent Zungar

Dreams are not all bad, and that includes those which come to life. Zungar are a very unusual manifested dream, as they seem to in some way exist independent of the dreams that cause their manifestation. As far as anyone can determine no zungar exist anywhere on the world outside of these manifested dreams, but they appear so consistently in different dreams and in their manifestations without having a clear source. If the zungar have a true culture or existence somewhere else, they do not say. While capable of speech and apparently intelligent, they limit their conversation to that which is required to ensure the safety of the creatures that they have decided to protect.

The zungar’s appearance is unusual, but less so than some of the other manifested dreams. They are humanoid in shape, with two arms, two legs, and a single head atop its upright body, but the specifics are noteworthy. Their torso and limbs are heavily covered in thick blue scales, and the limbs are much thicker than that of most humanoids. Their arms are very long, and their hands and feet are green and massively oversized, with four fingers and three toes on each. Their head is sort of insect like, green in the same shade as their hands and feet. Multiple purple, very round eyes sit on their head, two on the side around the temple, two on the front but spaced further apart and lower than human eyes, and two more on the underside of their chin. Their mouth is human-like but narrower, and tendrils that look roughly like dreadlocks grow from the top and back of their head. All those that have manifested so far fight with massive weapons they are able to hold single-handedly with their oversized digits.

If you wish to use zungar independent of this proposed setting, they could be monstrosities or humanoid, depending on the role you’d like for them to take.
