The 'base' for the salamander-style minion.
Telma, specifically, is a minion of air and has high mana resistance, and attack(it's a magic beast)
There is one for each element, and two for water.
Telma (air), Uld and Geenwee (water),Scul (earth), and Karn (fire)
These minions can go from being bipedal to quadrupedal and vice versa, they also lose their wings as they grow.
They superficially look like pokemon's Quagsire, for sure, due to using the Giant Salamander as a base.
However Jade Cocoon's one came first, having been out since 1998, while GS came out in '99
