Scuttlers are carnivorous beetles that live on the Dead Plain in the Shadowlands.[1]

History[]

The Shadowlands[]

Lief, Barda, Jasmine, and Emlis witnessed a Scuttler kill a lizard shortly after arriving in the Shadowlands. Scuttlers began to come out of the plain in the thousands when the sun set. A group of Wild Ones took Emlis and used him as Scuttler bait. The Scuttlers began to eat him, but he was rescued by Lief and the companions were able to escape.[1]

Habitat[]

Scuttlers are native to the Shadowlands, where they can be found nesting among rocks and crags in the earth.[1]

Anatomy[]

Scuttlers have long feelers and spiny orange bodies.[1]

Behaviour[]

Scuttlers are highly aggressive and live in large colonies. They are nocturnal creatures who rest during the day and emerge at night in swarms.[1]

Diet[]

Scuttlers are carnivorous and will eat anything they can overpower in swarms.[1]
