This intelligent race of subterranean creatures lives deep beneath the mountains. They worship Zelagiur, and venerate darkness, and the precious metals that the earth yields in the depths of their lightless caverns.
Their appearance is unique – five barbed appendages make up the base of the Burindal, with the mouth at the underside of their conjunction. From this rises a mineral exoskeleton which looks almost like a stalagmite. Five strong articulated limbs end in three-pronged pincers capable of wielding weapons or shields, or dealing devastating damage in their own right. At the top, stiff bristles surround a narrow orifice from which ultrasonic waves are used to navigate the caliginous tunnels of the underworld.
The product of cross-breeding between Demons and Dragons, these highly magical creatures are both powerful and cruel. Kervachi are the tacticians and strategists that carry out the will of their Lord.

The Tamgol have been known to ingest Vettar Leaf to aid them in combat in particularly dangerous situations.
Umbrdrial are highly magical creatures about 3 inches long that have hummingbird wings, a stinger as a proboscis, an avian body and squid-like tentacles. They feed off of the natural magic of Merisyl, and particularly gravitate towards areas where Kaol crystals have formed.
