Pentaceratops is a massive ceratopsid, with an equally massive skull and frill. A denizen to the wastelands of Extinction, Pentaceratops makes its home in the hostile wastelands of earth where it comes into constant contact with corrupted. However, this also means it comes into contact with copious amounts of raw element. Like other animals, element began to influence its evolution...similar to creatures like Velonasaur and Managarmr, and it ended up as corruption's worst nightmare. A valliant and courageous dinosaur, Pentaceratops has evolved specifically to combat and kill corrupted animals with ease. Its horns have evolved into bladelike shapes similar to tek swords, and its massive frill is equivalent to a biological tek shield. If this wasn't enough, the Pentaceratops's attacks, composed of purified element, have an extremely increased effect against corrupted dinosaurs, as the element causes wounds to amplify in damage. As such one would expect these colossal dinosaurs to be the pinnacle dinosaur for fighting corrupted on extinction, they indeed are...however they are nowhere near a friendly herbivore. Their extremely hostile environment causes Pentaceratops to be extremely untrusting of anything near it. They charge survivors and their tames from a distance, their element-powered strength allowing them to flatten all who provoke their ire. This same spiteful and untrusting temperament also means that Pentaceratops will NEVER take food from somebody that renders them unconscious, taking it as an assault and marring that person an enemy for life. Naturally, as such, Pentaceratops is untameable...if only there were a passive ranged taming option, or a creature that could placate Pentaceratops...
