This Comic's Cast:

It's a basilisk (although I'm sure I'll establish that soon). In the Castlevania series, that have the ability to stone you with their gaze (and not in the fun kind of way).

This is a Secret of Mana basilisk. One of the many sprite sheets I've managed to find over time, but lord only knows from where. I have no clue what its special powers are in that game (if any).
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
