Tanihwa's Special Attacks
Note: The following attacks are the ones that Tanihwa is always able to use. Spells it is capable of using with the equipping of runes such as Enfeebling Magic will not be listed.
Taniwha are mythical water creatures from Maori legend, that act as guardian or protector of holy places. The word taniwha has been reconstructed to Proto-Oceanic tanifa, with the meaning 'species of shark'. The Maori name for the Great White Shark is Mango-taniwha. In Tongan and Niuean, tenifa refers to a large dangerous shark, as does the Samoan tanifa; the Tokelauan tanifa is a sea-monster that eats people.
At sea, taniwha often are described as a whale or a large shark, whereas inn inland waters, they may still be of whale-like dimensions, but have an appearance more like a gecko or a tuatara, having a row of spines along the back.
