Akupara or Gonggong are massive Dragons Turtle with an affinity of the Water element and some aspects of Earth. They cannot fly but they can swim incredibly fast and they are capable of burrowing in Sand. It is not uncommon for them to sleep for eons near islands and their backs slowly develop trees, grass, and soil as well as small primates and birds sleeping on their backs. They are a brilliant dark jade green mixed with dark blues and teals, occasionally with a few golden and brilliant pearl scales fond on their titanic frames. Some Akupara are Dark blue with white scales beneath from swimming about in the deep sea while others that live in massive lakes become a very verdant green, sailors have even encountered a white-pink mother of pearl Gonggong near island shores. Generally, these giants are gentle behemoths enjoy devouring kelp forests, parts of coral reefs, or schools of krill and fish. When they are hungry they can eat great quantities of food but after they generally try to feast on food which has already died like kelp which has washed ashore or a rotting whale carcass. These creatures have been nicknamed "world turtles" due to Eastern mythology and the fact that sleeping Akupara can literally have a small island habitat living on it's back. Fishing villages that find a sleeping Gonggong sometimes gently awaken the massive creature for its advice and to ask them what the world is like and the wonders of the ocean. Generally, most of these titans are incredibly gentle and tell wondrous stories of times long past and encounters with strange sea creatures and so forth, or children and villagers can easily ride on their back's from island to island.
Some of these behemoths don't like mortals, they keep to themselves others become enraged due to the mortal races plundering their shoals and they fall to darkness... These occasional Akupara or Gonggong that become evil will wipe out whole islands of the local tribes and smash or capsize the ships of foolish merchants who come close.
