Sea Serpent and Haspid
Sea Serpents and Haspids are the level 7 creatures of Cove. They can be recruited from the Maelstrom.
"Sea Serpents are legendary monsters which known for three things. First - they have very tasty meat, that is why sailors and poachers hunt them. Second - Sea Serpents are huge, thus the hunting process is so difficult. And the last and very important thing: Sea Serpents are very aggressive predators. Therefore, Serpents often turn from victim to catcher. In the battle with these monsters drowned countless number of ships. Haspids are mature representatives of Sea Serpents. They are worth more than their younger relatives due to the special fatty layer that forms over the years under their skins. Usually Haspid attacks ships, preferring to drag away their under water and kill then drowning victims by powerful poison." HotA Facebook post

A Haspid can kill an Archangel in one-on-one combat, alongside the Ancient Behemoth and the Titan (Titan wins by defending 4 times and then attacking). They are also the only unit besides the Titan which can reliably kill an Ancient Behemoth in one-on-one combat.
