Armored beetle that pushes a peach-colored dung ball.
Bestiary Entry[edit | edit source]
Armored beetle that appears when the scent of death is in the air. After it kills a victim, it buries him in a pink-colored ball of dung and rolls him off.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
A slight mistransliteration for Khepri, the scarab-headed sun god of ancient Egyptian myth.
The Egyptians associated dung-beetles pushing their balls of dung with the movement of the sun across the sky, and a creative source.
Although occasionally depicted as a scarab-headed human, he was more commonly depicted in the abstract, represented by a winged scarab holding aloft the sun.
