The Rum'Katar (Hill Stomper in American English) is the king of the massive planes of Reign’ sea. The frontal bones alone weigh 9 tons, and yet this creature can sprint to speeds of 30 M.P.H. (not for long) The Va’Keese insects that make up the planet’s sentient population still hunt these beasts, which despite the advances in weapons tech, are still hard to bring down intact. There is an old legend that explains the name: that when god created Reign’ sea, he realized that the world had too many hills. Rather than fix them himself, he created the Rum’Katar to flatten the hills as well as provide the Va’keese with food and transportation. This legend forms from the unusually aggressive nature that is brought about when one of these creatures is attacked. Hill Stompers, when attacked, will aggressively hunt down the predator. If the massive skull or the fore legs smack the unlucky hunter, the Stomper will rear up and finish the creature in one massive stomp. According to biologists, there is never the need for another stomp to finish the victim.
