Found basking on rocks and in tree branches, Ajnole spend the vast majority of their time meditating and resting to recharge their brains. These lizards are powerful psychics with prominent, complex parietal eyes and simple eyes lining the sides of their bodies. While their primary eyes see the present, their parietal eyes see the future, and their lateral eyes see auras, thoughts, and memories infused into the land. Their movements are slow and their temperaments are languid, and they avoid predation and danger by watching the future and the past of a location.
Ajnole's diet consists primarily of a particular genus of fungus. In humans, the mushrooms have hallucinogenic properties. Chemical analysis has revealed several psychoactive compounds that increase the intensity of sensations and encourage psionic activity in the human brain, which is normally unattainable without rigorous training. The fungus is entirely flavorless and incredibly nutrient-dense. Ajnole can eat more flavorful food, and even seem to enjoy it, but they often turn it down. This fungus enhances Ajnole's natural psychic powers, but also increases its sensitivity to external stimuli.
Ajnole can go for days without food or water, even though they live in regions where plenty of both is available. Depriving themselves causes their primary eyes to temporarily go blind, focusing entirely on their future sight. Their other senses distract them from their visions and pull them back to the present. After sufficient training, hunger and thirst will not distract them like their senses do. The mushrooms they eat strengthen their visions while simultaneously increasing distracting sensory input. They use this to train themselves to ignore unnecessary stimuli as they focus on their third eye's premonitions and the auras of the present day surrounding them. An Ajnole in captivity must be allowed to continue its ascetic regimen in order to maintain its psychic power. As such, they are very difficult to train. They are only in peak battling form when allowed to meditate regularly and fed a diet exclusively of the special mushrooms from Ultra Forest, which require specific growing conditions, soil composition, and species of wood to sprout. An Ajnole on a more lavish diet will lose its ability to see the future in favor of sharper sight through its lateral eyes. Individuals exposed to more luxurious lifestyles will cease to be clairvoyant and become empaths. Their battle potential ebbs, but they can become excellent companions and therapy animals in exchange. An empath-trained Ajnole is as dutiful as its abstinent counterparts.
