Biography
An instectoid race that dwell around the blood lake. They have a reverence for ancestors and history and the power gained from the rote recounting of these (Bardic Lore). They practice bone manipulation magic (Calciomancy), in fact some completely eschew their normal form for exoskeletons wrought from caliomanced bone.

Some ages ago, their living Matron ancestor, the Queen That Is, offered herself as sacrifice to the Daeyang’s bloodthirsty diety. After being consumed, great spikes and thorns of serrated bone burst from the skin of the Great Kraken. Afterwards becoming a deity of self-flagellation and masochism. Some Syth order believe in recounting the previous teachings of the Queen-That-Is, while others believe in worshiping the current amalgamation she has become.

Others, still, are Poachers, following the initial directive of the Great Kraken and partake in the capture and ritualistic sacrifice of others, namely the Kaeru.
