    Our final villain of the series - Parsidaegon is a powerful but unstable collection of comets. Damage breaks apart her body, weakening her. But she can fully heal each round - so she's hard to take care of with finality!

    This ability also ties in neatly with the villain's Team Card...

    More kaiju reveals every Monday!

    @Simon Strange i have a question. Ive noticed all cards have terms under their names, in this case "Claws-Armor- Wings". Care to elaborate on what they mean and what affects they have, I was gonna ask this in dessys thread, but this is easier. Also I noticed all the villains are female(save for dredge but hes a wild card) I kinda find that as a nice touch.

    That line, under the name on the front, are the ATTRIBUTES. They trigger bonuses, generally damage or range, on the combat cards. One reasonable way to build a deck is to get characters with overlapping attributes, so you can load up on cards that everyone has bonuses for.

    Dessy has " Teeth -Tail - Shield" and Pars has "Claw -Armor-Wings". What bonuses would these attributes grant Does parsi get a defense boost due to armor or does dessy get a shield that blocks and deflects attacks(which is a thing in the original thread)

    Parsidaegon would get an increased Toughness with defense cards that have the Armor icon on them (and the opponent's attack card would decrease in damage if they have that same icon on them but colored red, when using it against a Kaiju with Armor).

    Desolous would gain the same benefits but only with cards with the Shield icon (same with the opponent's cards, they lose some of their damage if their card has a red Shield icon on it and your Kaiju has the Shield attribute).

    The rest of the attributes will give extra damage, toughness and/or range to any combat card with their icon on them (they may add more than one value if there are multiple copies of that icon on the card). Hope this helps.

    Hmm... if she's a comet does that make her weak to fire? Also, what does the final sentence of her Combat Style section mean when it says "her spirit abandons any broken bits of her body on the battlefield and is already streaking on..."
    Is she some kind of space-ghost that possesses comets, and if her current "body" is destroyed she goes and finds a new one?

    Ye. Remember, in the herringsverse, their "comet body" is a bunch of angry souls. Also, on the current body destroyed thing, in the story, shes KoH's mortal enemy because of her constant returns, usually looking different.

    Btw, on the card art, It looks completely different from the other card arts I've seen. did the theme team change their design or did something get rushed? I feel a little conflicted over the art because I dunno if this is a "CKC Parsi" or just one accurate to the new design.

    I think Parsidaegon is a big cluster of comets. That cluster gets near a planet, some of them peel off, and fight on the surface. Then, win or lose, those rocks stop being part of "Parsidaegon" and the main/primary soul is then more properly in the cluster once more.

    There are lots of ways to describe this - it could be a collection of souls, and one breaks off, then dies after a while. Or maybe there is a "dominant" soul, which sort of directs the others. I was deliberately vague on this, because I think it's fun to speculate, but mechanically it doesn't matter much. Parsidaegon is a collection of stuff in space, and sometimes bits of that smash into a planet, and form a kaiju also called Pasidaegon. That kaiju never returns to space - but at some point the rocks making up the kaiju's body just become rocks again, and Parsidaegon refers to the collection of stuff in space again.

    I looked at two bits of reference art - one showed a solid-body kaiju, which didn't make sense given the "mass of comets/souls" concept. The other was a big string of rocks in space. That's the design I told Slither to use.

    Slither gave the rock group a very clearly delineated hand and face, but obviously Parsidaegon is like a cloud. If you look at it from different angles, it's going to be very different looking. You could also think of this card art as one of the bunches of rocks "breaking off" from the main body, and forming a more kaiju-sized collection of rocks for the ass-whuppin about to be laid down.
