What is a Cerberus?
A Cerberus is a very rare magic pet that can only be found in the realms of Conflux. Cerberi are in fact so rare that only three are known to exist. They are therefore sought out and coveted by powerfull Wizards and Monsters.

Where can I obtain my own Cerberus?
Of the three Cerberi, it is known that the first is a prisoner of the evil and vile Eye Tyrant, Xanathar. Xanathar has locked this Cerberus away deep within his treacherous lair. He is known to be watching visitors to his level; often forcing them to clean his floors and seek numerous keys before sicking his brutal Golem thugs on them to bash them into pulp.
The second Cerberus is said to be closely held by the malevolent Vexirk Chamberlain of the Council. You may try to talk with him about the Cerberus, but his frequent answer is likely to be NO. That is, if he doesn't immediately call for his blood thirst guards to arrest you for trespassing.
Lastly, it is rumoured that the Dark Councillor himself was actively seeking to obtain the third and final Cerberus, but it is uncertain if he or his minions have managed to aquire one. The Dark Councillor is said to be hidden away from all view, so who can tell if he has achieved his dark desires?
What Can Your Cerberus Do For You?
Your Cerberus loves to be useful, and will allow you "swing" it at monsters. When swung, your Cerberus will cry out with a sound much like a cougar. A Cerberus also likes playing with items in your quiver and pouch, and can "shoot" arrows, rocks, daggers, thorns and other items, but they don't go more than a square. To get the full potential of your Cerberus, however, it is necessary to feed it.
How Do I Feed A Cerberus?
A Cerberus is fed with the spell that transforms a normal Cerberus into a Fiery Cerberus. This spell Show text
(ZO GOR SAR)
gives your Cerberus the ability to cast fireballs! As such, you gain the ability to inflict fiery magical damage even if you have exhausted your own personal mana. You must have achieved (UM) level Wizard Mastery to cast this spell. Casters are also limited to a maximum power level of 1 minus their existing Wizard level. Thus an (UM) Master Wizard can only cast a (LO) level version of the spell. Such a Fiery Cerberus will cast a single fireball before reverting to a normal Cerberus and want to be fed again.
Know Your Cerberus By Its Behavior.
Like most cats, your Cerberus will be bored if it is not in your weapon hand(getting pet). To alleviate its boredom, it will actively move randomly to any open places in your inventory. When it does so, you will hear your Cerberus make a muttering sound. This is all perfectly normal and can be safely ignored.
Even from your inventory, your Cerberus can sense certain dangerous monsters. When in close proximity to hidden Demons(even disguised ones), Stone Salimanders, and Litches your Cerberus will issue its cougar cry. Be sure to take heed of these warnings when they occur.
It's all in the Eyes.
- A Cerberus' eyes will change color based on what level you are on.
- Currently, orange is the most common eye color and violet only present in Temple.
- This section will need updating as more information about this becomes available.
