K'nksh were first seen on Amaarion following the Rain of Amaars. They target settlements, abduct women and take them to the Hskaner pyramids. No one can foresee their next victim. Some villages have tried to choose the sacrifice and present her to K’nksh, only for them to ignore the offering and abduct someone else.

K’nksh thrash with a distinct cracking noise, which they are named after. Their writhing movements are erratic, asymmetrical and lack repetition or rhythm. Their limbs continuously squirm and contort like worms.

Pillars of the Eternal Sleep
by Nincho

Neither magic nor weaponry can kill K’nksh, the only known exceptions being Pillars of the Eternal Sleep. They are spread throughout the K’nksh settlements and are made of an unknown material. Upon touching, the pillar engulfs a k’nksh, whose hardened flesh partially reemerges from the column. It is uncertain when or why a k’nksh chooses to depart.

Basic Information


K'nksh possess four arms, the additional pair emerging from their backs. Men have a muscular physique, while women bodies are hidden beneath their robes.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Considering K'nksh lack noses and mouths, they seemingly don't require air, food or water.

Additional Information

Facial characteristics

Gotta be one of the scariest and most intriguing species I've seen in a while. I love how so much is unsaid, it really makes them even more mysterious! And the art is fantastic.
