Levies (short for "leviathans") are immense creatures, massing up to 100 tons, which live deep in the ocean depths of Skye (Reaver's Deep 2018). Leviemeat is a popular foodstuff, harvested from great these great creatures.

The Levies are hunted from small, six-man submarines, killed, and brought to the surface by the attachment of large airbags secured by divers. It is dangerous work, both for the sub. for a flick of a levie's tail has been known to wipe out a sub and its crew, and for the divers, who must go outside the sub and risk encounters with several large scavengers which often contest a levie kill.
