We met Sea Robins some time ago. They were the large-headed, flat-bellied, bottom-dwelling fish who used their finger-like pectoral fin spines to crawl along the sea floor.
They were great, but I know what we were all asking:
When comes the demon version?
It's as if someone killed a dragon but didn't properly conduct the rituals to ensure it would STAY dead. Add the bright red colour common in the family and it all looks rather gory.

A lot of them also have devil horns! On their nose. I guess fish-devils do things differently.

Armoured Searobins also creepy-crawl across the ocean floor! They do so using four thick, flexible fin spines. This is different from the normal Sea Robins, who used six spines instead.
It's not uncommon for fishermen to catch these fish and have absolutely no idea what on earth they're looking at. Armoured Searobins make for a poor meal since there are a lot of bones and not a lot of meat on them.
I hope those fishermen are OK! Looking into the eyes of some Armoured Searobins it's clear they're looking right back and calculating the value of your soul...
