Species Notes

Like the other Heavyweight breeds of Britain, the Chequered Nettle was not a native breed, but one that was created through cross-breeding. It is likely closely related to the Defendeur-Brave, a French breed that shares the trait of having a tail that can be used as a weapon, however, while the Chequered Nettle's tail is spiked, the Defendeur-Brave's tail is merely hooked.

Colouring?

Although no information is given as to the colouring of a Chequered Nettle, the colouring of the dragon Kulingile, who had Parnassian & Chequered Nettle forbears, as well as the colouring of several real-life creatures with "Chequered" in their name suggests that the Chequered Nettle is gold-coloured with brown patches.
