Web-footed Sand Gecko
400  Sands 
The minute pieces of webbing between this gecko's toes help to propel it across dry sands.

A scalekin that is specially adapted for traversing over sand. The membranes between its toes prevent it from sinking into even the softest sand. They also make the creature a strong swimmer, although it gets little practice in its desert home.
Sand Egg
390  Sands 
This peculiar creature was found rolling its way across the sands despite having no visible means of propulsion.

Though it looks every ilm an egg, it is in fact a creature in its own right, capable of independent ambulation and feeding on the nutrients in the desert dew. Those that have spent many moons beneath the sands develop a curiously smoky aroma.
Amber Lamprey
395  Sands 
A blood red eel native to the Fields of Amber.

Bloodsucking beasts who sup from the veins of travelers who stray into their territory. Their bodies darken the more they drink, with the greediest guzzlers taking on a scarlet hue. There's an old phrase in desert-trekking circles—if you see red, run.
Desert Saw
415  Sands 
Those already alarmed by the sight of this fish's vicious-looking fins protruding from the sands will be discomfited to know that its teeth are equally pointy.

The eight jagged spines along its back help this creature to cut through the sand as it swims. It also uses them as a weapon, slicing open the bellies of oversized prey before eating them from the inside out.
Garik Crab
409  Sands 
One of a species of crabs native to western Amh Araeng.

With its burly body and claws covered in bristly hairs that resemble the work mitts worn by miners, this crustacean became something of a symbol of pride to the pitmen of Garik, before they all moved away.
Nabaath Manta
412  Sands 
This manta is able to glide effortlessly through sandy hill and valley in its desert home.

An airborne ray that glides through the valleys of the Hills of Amber. Before the empire's decline, the nobles of Nabaath would hunt these creatures for sport, mounting them on their walls with winglike fins outspread, as if still in flight.
Thorned Lizard
420  Sands 
One of several varieties of lizards that inhabit the desert sands of Amh Araeng.

The spiny plates that cover this scalekin from the top of its nose to tip of its tail have led some to nickname it the knight of the desert. It traverses the sands by biting its tail and rolling along like a tumbleweed.
Spotted Blue-eye
403  Rivers 
A large-finned killifish found in Il Mheg.

This freshwater fish's translucent fins flutter like a butterfly as it swims, while its golden scales shine like a suit of polished mail. If the butterflies were ever to don armor and take up arms against the adventuring races, their swarms might overpower us all.
Official Ball
400  Rivers 
This rotund freshwater fish is native to Il Mheg─much to its misfortune.

This motley wavekin is preferred by the Fuath to serve as the ball in several of their underwater sports, thanks to its peaceable nature and nigh on spherical body. The fish itself has never been asked its preference.
Grey Skipper
400  Rivers 
This variety of skipper is found all across Il Mheg, where it, paradoxically, stands out like a sore thumb due to its dull color.

The grey skipper provides a rare drop of shade in the Kingdom of Rainbows. It has its origins in the Kingdom of Voeburt and remains staunchly loyal to its former masters, refusing to engage in any way with the pixies' magicks.
Pixie Fish
400  Lakes 
The coloration of this fish reminds you of one pixie in particular. (They assure you there is no relation.)

Nu Mou chroniclers tell that there was once a pixie who wished to swim like a fish. They muttered a magic word to transform themselves into a freshwater wavekin, and frolicked in the water. But when they went to reverse the spell, they found that their mouth produced no sound—only bubbles.
Blood-eyed Frog
403  Rivers 
This small amphibian boasts bright-red eyes, but overall is still much less weird than a Fuath.

These frogs are fawned over by the Fuath, who think of them as adorable infants. Some are even known to craft miniature top hats for their unwitting charges.
Cherry Herring
400  Rivers 
This freshwater fish was named for its color─presumably by someone poorly versed in specific shades of red.

The eggs this wavekin lays are almost indistinguishable from glacé cherries, making them highly prized by the pixies, fond as they are of practical jokes.
Wimple Carp
406  Lakes 
A striped freshwater fish found in Handmirror Lake.

This wavekin has a characteristic white hood resembling the headdresses worn by women of a certain religious order. Rumor has it that wimple carps are actually white all over—their black stripes are merely the inky scrawls of tricksy pixies.
403  Lakes 
A speckled, bright yellow freshwater fish.

This citrus-skinned pufferfish produces an acidic poison from an internal gland, from which a delicious yet deadly dressing can be prepared. Should the pixies present you with a suspiciously sour salad, you would be wise to feign fullness.
403  Lakes 
In spite of─or perhaps to spite─its diminutive size, this freshwater wavekin can often be seen swimming upstream.

A wavekin that likes to swim against the stream. When kept in a wood-paneled aquarium, it prefers to position itself against the grain. No one is sure as to the cause of this unusual behavior—perhaps there isn't one.
Wild Red Betta
403  Lakes 
A distinctly colored betta native to Longmirror Lake.

Named not for habitat, but for its rough and rambunctious behavior, the fun-loving Fuath have made a sport of teasing the wild red betta, tugging at its fins before fleeing from the ensuing maelstrom of rage.
Spotted Ctenopoma
406  Rivers 
This fish's scales feature an eye-catching pattern in shades of brown.

Some of the First have jokingly nicknamed them the “Ronso of the Water” for their brown spotted scales, reminiscent of the pattern adorning certain Ronso's coats─if one squints.
Cerulean Loach
400  Rivers 
This bright blue fish can be found in aquatic environs throughout Il Mheg.

Legend has it that this wavekin is descended from a drop of blue sky that fell from the heavens before they were filled with all-encompassing light. The black star shape around its eye isn't accounted for.
Golden Lobster
403  Rivers 
This massive lobster is so shiny that one could be forgiven for mistaking it for a gaudy decoration at first sight.

Prized as a status symbol by the noble families of Eulmore, who will often dispatch bonded servants to Il Mheg in search of a shiny prize. Alas, the fae folk have other ideas, more often than not transforming the trespassing lobster hunters into leafmen.
420  Rivers S (1) 
A dazed-looking fish found in Il Mheg.

[Suitable for display in aquariums tier 1 and higher.]

Some scholars say that the large, bubble-like bags under its eyes are this shortsighted wavekin's way to make predators believe it sees more than it does. Others insist that it is merely sleep-deprived.
403  Lakes 
This type of crab is native to the Rak'tika Greatwood, and was doubtless named by the Viis.

A small crustacean named for its oversized left pincer, which lends it the appearance of an archer holding a greatbow. As one might expect, the crab is unable to shoot arrows from its arms—only dirty looks from its beady eyes.
Black Tri-star
412  Rivers 
A spotted freshwater fish found at Lozatl's Conquest.

The sorcerer priests of ancient Ronka would divine the size of the fishing harvest for that year by examining the pattern of black spots along this wavekin's length. Whether or not they were able to do this with any accuracy is unproven.
Robber Crab
406  Lakes 
A member of an omnivorous and aggressive species of hermit crab.

According to popular belief, this crab climbs trees and steals fruit from their branches, but this is naught but a tall tale. In truth, it is an omnivorous scavenger, feeding on fallen fruit and carrion alike.
406  Lakes 
A black eel native to Woven Oath.

These dark-skinned eels spend much of their lives lurking in shadowy shallows, disguising themselves as roots of the black-boughed trees of the Greatwood. The Children of the Everlasting Dark think very highly of them.
