A goozli, or goozli doll, is a tiny magical servant made of animated amber mud.[2] Goozlis are bound to their owner forever, until the owner dies or the goozli is destroyed. They have healing powers, having a fragment of the life-giving magic of Tier within them.[3]


Tier created the goozli figures after his mother left him alone in the swamp. He moulded amber mud into figures.[1]

The turtle people living in the centre of the Two Moons swamplands, one of many swamp dweller groups, create goozlis and use them to harvest sunrise pearls.

Dare Larsett traded his sky sphere for a goozli on his last trip to Two Moons.[2]

  • The magic that imbues goozlis prevents their owners from telling others about them.[2]
