History & Background[edit]

Until the early 800's, the animal was very much in demand because several substances in the creature's brain were used in the manufacture of psionic drugs. These substances can be duplicated synthetically, but it is far easier to obtain them from a natural source. After the Psionics Suppressions in the early 800's, demand for such materials vanished.

Today the animal is known for attacks made by groups of ssazhentas against exploration and/or hunting expeditions, occasionally with deadly results.

Travellers' Aid Society Advisory[edit]
