Destroyer of crops
The pea shanklet fungus grows only in the country of Kaien on the continent of Caia. It prefers the damp, fertile soil of southern Kaien, sheltered by the mountains of the Teeth. It is a parasitic species, existing in tilled soil where crops have been planted. The mycelium forces its way into the structure of the other plants, stealing nutrients from the growing crops to accelerate its own rapid growth. Despite first being identified in a field growing peas, the pea shanklet fungus more commonly targets grain crops such as wheat, barley, or rye.

The pea shanklet fungus is endemic to the wet, arable land of southern Kaien. Despite its deceptively diminutive size, this fungus is capable of destroying whole fields of crops if farmers are not proactive in keeping it under control. It has been responsible for at least two major famines in recent Kaienese history.
