Kaya Isırmaks, The Biters of Rocks


Kaya Isırmaks, The Biters of Rocks
Elemental of the Earth Dragon


“Their maws scrape and their voice bellow in the depths as they chew the rock with their small teeth. Carving and hewing stone with unceasing grit as the tunnels of the dark wind ever deeper.” -Nomad recounting a journey into Ab’Hichaya

Within the courts, the place of the Kaya Isirmaks is quite low. There are those that praise their work knowingly and unknowingly, the carving of underground tunnels and passages that are frequently used by water courts and well trafficked by the Turpeharen as well. It is their work that allows oasis to flourish in the Glitter Flame and they dispassionately extend the lives of countless water elementals each season. Still, nothing can truly be attributed to the Isırmaks. They follow the orders of their lord and it’s advisors, without fault. Thoughts and desires impressed upon the essence of these lesser spirits like leaves into wet clay, they go about realizing those desires with tiny teeth and great appetite.

Skilled occultists recognize that they have much the same function as the Mercury Ants found in other areas of Creation. If they were to share their own knowledge, the courts could make clear the true relationship…
