Hydra, from Ultima VII manual
|First appearance:||Ultima IV|
|Last appearance:||Ultima VII|
The hydra is a sub-species of dragons. The only thing that sets them apart is that hydrae have three heads instead of one. Otherwise, they are much the same as their dragon cousins. Amusingly, their three heads do not always have the same opinion, which experienced adventurers can use to their advantage.
In Ultima VII only one hydra is found, and it is shown to be fairly intelligent and capable of speech (See: Notable examples).
Beware the evil breath of the multi-headed Hydra! The massive fireballs can fry most members of thy party.
This creature is a type of dragon that possesses three heads. Like the dragon, a hydra can also fly and breathe fire.
- The Avatar meets a hydra known as the Hydra Brothers in Ultima VII on the island Ambrosia. A hilarious conversation follows with all three heads, wherein the Brothers do their best to look superior, but the Avatar bests them easily.
