Killikra

By:

If you can see the bones, you're already dead.

Within the deepest jungles of Garo Tai dwell many strange, exotic creatures. Some are known for their bright coloration, delicious meat, or their vicious demeanor. This creature is in the last category.

A Killikra is a strange creature, and difficult to classify. Its closest relatives are Reptilian, but this monstrosity seems far removed from any such animal. It is eight feet tall, with four arms and two legs, normally standing in a manner similar to an ape. One pair of arms is very large, used for locomotion and combat, while its smaller, inner arms are used for holding food and fine manipulation. It possesses a carapace that encompasses most of its body, shielding itself from blows that would kill most other animals. It has four jaws, two vertical, resembling a normal mouth, and two horizontal, almost serving as cheeks. Perhaps its most notable feature, it completely lacks eyes, instead relying upon two forms of Echolocation. The first is used for running and moving quickly through the jungle, sounding like a reverberating whooping that carries for quite some distance. Te other is a barely audible clicking, produced by moving its horizontal jaws back and forth in rapid succession. This is used for hunting, stalking prey, and has the added benefit of causing disorientation in most creatures' inner ear, leaving them dizzy and unbalanced.

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.

Excerpt from "The peoples of the world" By Taklamarian court-scholar Guliman Amon.
