Blood Grass is a flora species found exclusively in the Grassy Plateaus in great abundance, which in turn derives the biome's name from it.

It can also be found growing on the carapace of the Reefback Leviathans.


Blood Grass consists of a small group of dull red blades of tall grass. They tend to grow close to each other, forming vast patches.

Blood Grass

A common sea grass adapted to shallow, sandy environments.

- Likely to grow wherever the ground is too loose or the ocean surface too far for creepvines to take hold
- Commonly found growing on the crests of dunes and atop raised plateaus for superior access to sunlight
- Distinctive red coloration may be an adaptation to low wavelength light on the seabed, a deterrent against predators, or both
- Insufficient calories for human consumption

  • Blood Grass was originally intended to produce a thick red cloud when touched, which would shroud anyone inside and fool dumber creatures[1].
  • Due to the way light works, in real life, blood grass shouldn't even be red, and instead it would appear as a dark green colour, because the ocean filters out red when you go ~30 meters underwater
