Tomb Sphinx by DemonML Tomb Sphinx by DemonML
This is my Tomb Sphinx, Rex.

Tomb Sphinxes are a part of Skyrinian myth/folklore. They are said to guard the tombs of kings, warriors and priests/priestesses. They have no eyes (the red orb on it's head/tail is a jewel and not all Sphinxes have one), but it is said their mask is actually the upper jaw of a mouth with double rows of needle-like teeth which they use to eviscerate tomb raiders and trespassers. They have retractable claws and are a bit smaller than a lion. Their masks can vary depending on the tomb.
Tomb Sphinx colors are ash, blue (shown above), tan, cream/white, and occasionally piebald. They are hairless.
