Killer worms are fish-like creatures that live in the depths of the River Tor and the Silver Sea. They are known to attack people by jumping out of the water.[1]

History[]

The Maze of the Beast[]

The captain of the River Queen mentioned that he had an argument with a big worm when he noticed Lief staring at his hand which missed a couple of fingers. He told Lief, Barda and Dain that the worms swim up from the sea and the farther inland they come the hungrier they get. After the pirate attack an Ol in the form of Barda mentioned that he managed to survive because the worms were busy with other prey.[1]

Anime[]

In the anime Dain pushes Lief to the ground when he is leaning over the rail of the River Queen because, as Dain claims, he almost got chomped by a serpent fish. He illustrated this by throwing a twig in the water and subsequently a worm jumps out of the water.

Habitat[]

Killer worms reside in the River Tor and the Silver Sea.[1]

Anatomy[]

Not much is known about the anatomy of killer worms but they can grow quite big.[1]

Behaviour[]

Killer worms are known to jump out of the water to attack unaware people on a boat.[1]

Diet[]

Killer worms eat meat and other animals that enter the water in which they live.[1]
