Native Lifeform: Tkighir[edit]

Cablian Tkighir is a native mammal carnivore which can measure up to 4 meters long from nose to tail and can weigh up to 320 kilograms. Armed with sharp, raking claws and canines as long as a man's forefinger, it is Cablu's ultimate predator.

Until the early 900s the man-eating Tkighir was freely hunted by trigger-happy sportsmen and by smugglers who sold various parts of the creature to off-worlders as folk medicine. In 905 the number of Tklghlr's still roaming free had fallen to less than 500 and the local government established sanctuaries to protect the creature from extinction. Within a couple of decades the Tkightr's numbers had once more multiplied. Unfortunately this also meant that it had outgrown some of the smaller sanctuaries and was once more attacking and killing people from the surrounding settlements.

The government is currently examining ways that man and Tkighlr can coexist peacefully.

Tkighir Advisory:

One protection that visitors can take if they wish to enter the Jungle regions is to wear masks on the back of their heads. Natives claim that because the Tklghlr prefers to attack from behind the masks confuse the animal sufficiently so that it will issue a challenge before attacking, allowing the guides sufficient time to prepare for any eventuality.

History and background[edit]

Cablu was initially part of Makhidkarun's land grant to the Universal Church of God but, over the centuries, there has been a peaceful blending of cultures so that today many of the Churches great artisans originate from the Lancian colonies on Cablu.
