ATOM Bonus Kaiju File 5: Sirinost

B5 Sirinost

Aliases: The Colossal Talon

Date Discovered: June 26th, 1954

Place of Origin: The Tunguska Crater

Notable Stomping Grounds: Moscow, The Siberian Monster Zone

Height: 100 feet

Wingspan: 250 feet

Biology: One of the more powerful kaiju to rampage through the U.S.S.R., Sirinost is an immense vulture with bright red plumage and ashen gray skin.  Coloration and size is not all that sets her apart from her mundane kin, however, as Sirinost’s feathers have an odd composition that allows them to create sparks when rustled the correct way.  With strategic flapping, Sirinost is actually able to kick up jets of flame with its wings, and, perhaps because of this, is also far more resistant to fire and heat than other kaiju.

Sirinost’s full power set is as follows:

  • Super strength
  • An enhanced healing factor
  • Immunity to radiation
  • Fire-starter feathers
  • Heat resistant skin

Personality:  One of the more famous kaiju in the U.S.S.R., Sirinost gained notoriety when she first appeared from the Tunguska Crater by proving almost impossible to destroy or corral.  The enormous bird evaded almost every attack sent after her and shrugged off the few that managed to land, all while grounding most air traffic as she embarked on a whirlwind tour of Russia.

However, despite causing a great deal of panic and mayhem, Sirinost proved to be fairly docile.  She shows no interest in hunting humanity, and even lacks the competitive urge to brawl with her fellow kaiju, generally flying away when others try to initiate a destructive duel with her.  The threat she poses is mainly from her enormous size and exploratory nature – it’s very hard to keep Sirinost in a defined territory, and as such she often unintentionally threatens human settlements with the collateral damage of her visits.

When forced into combat, Sirinost is a fierce enemy.  Her special feathers allow her to rain fire down upon her opponents, and the few battles the bird has taken part in quickly turn into raging infernos.  Her beak and talons are formidable weapons as well, and the vulture has a surprising amount of muscle packed onto her hollow boned frame.   Most enemies learn that it was a mistake to force her into a fight, as Sirinost’s wrath is hard to contain once it is unleashed.

Though she doesn’t seek it out, Sirinost is open to friendly company, and has been spotted socializing with some of the U.S.S.R.’s more affable kaiju in the Siberian Monster Zone.  It is hoped that eventually she may make enough friends to finally settle down and stop her somewhat destructive exploring sprees.
