I'm getting ready to create the page for the Segarran which is a unique creature in Zakhara. The monstrous compendium page has the Segarran divided into lesser and greater versions with a good bit of information on each, so I wanted to get opinions on if I should make 1 article entitled Segarran or an article for Lesser Segarran and a separate article for Greater Segarran. And if 2 articles are made, which would be a better way to name them: Lesser Segarran or Segarran, Lesser?

I would just go with one article. You can use {{Size table}} if they have different sizes.

I'd say... it's depends. If they're practically completely different creatures, then two articles might be best. But if there's a lot of overlapping lore or the greater segarran is basically segarran-plus, then one article would be more efficient. And if lore refers to just "segarrans", e.g., "The jungle was full of [[segarran]]s" then linking to the one article is easier.
As for the articles' names, I suggest making it as close as possible to what you'd link to in an article, to avoid piped links and disambiguation. For example, "The jungle was full of [[lesser segarrans]], led by one [[greater segarran]]" is preferable to "The jungle was full of [[segarran, lesser|lesser segarrans]], led by one [[segarran, greater|greater segarran]]"

I ultimately decided on 2 pages: Lesser segarran which I just created and Greater segarran which I'll make later today or tomorrow. After doing a bit more research the origins and purpose of lesser/greater varied too much for me to feel like they belonged on a single article.

After reading both articles, I agree completely.
