The Rhu Chalik are a darkmorph native to the Melik system. They feed on fear, and can use substantial mystical abilities to create physical manifestations to enhance that fear. Often they will cause events to occur that cause extreme pain, and even loss of limb, to enhance the fear of their victimes. But, they rarely kill those they torment - once the prey is dead, they can no longer fear. As with all darkmorphs, the Rhu Chalik are corporeal beings, and can be killed by anything that might kill a man.
