Euryale- The Far Springer
Still recovering from the first cry, you begin to fly towards the source. Looking back, you hope that Sam and Ga'Rook will be okay, but then you see the massive Gorgon in front of you and realize that you might be the one in trouble. This Gorgon, codenamed Euryale, is easily the size of a small moon, and it looks more like a cavernous, floating pit of fangs than a snake. Its scales look deadly pale, and if it weren't for its eyes, massive yellow slits that follow your every twist and turn, you might have thought it had died long ago.
(This point in the chapter applies to protecting the North)
Matching its hungry gaze, you adjust your path to engage and soon begin firing. At first it seems as if there's no reaction. Its scales and teeth are too durable to penetrate, but, when a stray blast hits it in the eye, another scream tells you that there's a chance. Unfortunately, that same scream sends you tumbling away, hurtling towards the hoard of Gorgons around you. Using your side thrusters* you manage to recover in time, but as you approach the giant Gorgon again it counter attack by launching a machine gun fire of its fangs from its gaping maw.
